Micro Catalytic Combustor as a Heat Source for Micro Endothermic Reactors
A micro catalytic combustor was studied as an energy source to supply heat to a micro scale endothermic reactor. The catalyst bed was made from porous material called Isolite B5 coated with Pt catalyst by the incipient wetness method. The catalyst bed is inserted in a millimeter scale reaction chamber and temperature distribution along the outside wall of the reactor was measured by varying the flow rate and equivalence ratio of the hydrogen and air mixture.
