Mechanical Performance of Catalyst Pellets

posted in: | 0

Industrial Context Ceramic particles are pelletized and fired to produce high porosity catalyst pellets of complex shapes. These pellets fill cylindrical reactor columns with particulate packing structures that are key to the in-service performance, but will suffer breakages, which impact … Continued
