POTTOR micro-flow fixed bed reactor
ECN's POTTOR is a micro-flow fixed bed reactor designed for Fischer-Tropsch synthesis.
The feed gas is preheated and fed to an externally heated reactor where the syngas is converted into hydrocarbon. In the product separation phase, the waxes are collected in a heated vessel. The gaseous stream is cooled to condense the liquid Fischer-Tropsch products. CO, H2, He, and N2 are available to pre-mix gases to the desired syngas composition and inert concentration. The reactor has been coupled to gasification and gas cleaning infrastructure to allow integrated experiments with biosyngas or product gas as feed.
