Development of Efficient Metal Catalyst Support


Article Preview

A new wire mesh metallic catalyst support has been studied by using a stainless heat resistant steel of including aluminum. This catalyst support was improved for the metal honeycomb catalyst support that had been put to practical use. The wire mesh catalyst support was made in the following procedures. First, it was made from flat plate made by the stainless steel from the machining. Second, the low oxygen atmosphere in the heat treatment furnace did the aluminum extraction processing. Third, the aluminum oxide layer was made on the surface of catalyst support by furnace in air. Metal honeycomb catalyst has been made for several years by this method. The aim of this study was to evaluate the aluminum oxide layer on the surface of wire mesh catalyst support. The aluminum oxide surface was measured using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray reflection diffraction (XRD). This catalyst support has the performance similar to the conventional metal honeycomb catalyst support.
