Abstract:

Studies in the development of an improved catalytic oxidation process reveal that polluted air causes other problems along with the corrosion which has been experienced in submarines. COH2 Burner troubles are explained by data showing inhibition of Hopcalite due to adsorption of CO2 and organic halides and showing catalyst granules turning to dust because of thermal fracture. Minimization of air pollutants is necessary, and preprocessing to remove certain materials before the catalytic oxidation is a necessary part of air purification.
