Application: NH3 & Urea Synthesis

Related Industry: Petrochemical Refining

Hydrogen is produced by the reaction of methane with water. However, before this can be carried out, all sulfurous compounds must be removed from the natural gas to prevent catalyst poisoning. These are removed by utilizing an electric heater to heat the gas to 400°C and reacting it with zinc oxide.
