Catalyst performance in high temperature catalytic combustion
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis was carried out in co-operation between KTH- Royal Institute of Technology, Tallinn University of Technology and ReformTech Heating Technologies Sweden AB. The purpose of this thesis was to evaluate catalyst performance in a catalytic heater developed by ReformTech Heating Technologies Sweden AB. Different catalysts were tested for the combustion of diesel at 5 KW adiabatic power during 1 hour. The catalysts were evaluated based on the temperature profiles, emission results and mechanical durability. The catalyst with ceramic support showed the most promising results for this application with the highest mechanical durability and exhaust emissions below 0,5 ppm for diesel and CO, NOX content in the exhaust gas was negligible .
