Abstract:

A feasibility study was carried out to determine if a practical H generator using the catalytic reforming of a light petroleum distillate, such as JP-5, could be designed. The process proposed for the production of hydrogen by the reforming of liquid hydrocarbons involves established and proven technology. Vaporized hydrocarbon is catalytically reacted with steam and oxygen at elevated pressure and temperature. The resulting process gas stream consists of H, CO2 and CO, together with excess steam. Pure H is separate from the final gas stream by diffusion. After the separation of the H, the residual gas stream is catalytically reacted by controlled addition of O to achieve complete combustion. The H generator will operate in accordance with good engineering practice. Author
