Autothermal reforming of methane for syngas production in a novel ceramic microchannel reactor
Ceramic microchannel reactors offer significant advantages to current microreactor technology due to the ability to operate at high temperatures and harsh chemical environments while using relatively inexpensive materials and manufacturing processes. Previous research on a novel ceramic microchannel reactor demonstrated a maximum heat exchanger effectiveness of 88% under inert flow conditions and 100% methane conversion at a gas hourly space velocity (GHSV) of 15,000 1/hr under steam methane reforming (SMR) conditions. This work focuses on widening reactor operating conditions by exploring ...
