Reforming is a critical reaction in the production of Hydrogen and high octane liquid products.
Steam Reforming of Hydrocarbon gas such as natural gas (consisting primarily of Methane) is a method to produce synthesis gas (H2 and CO2).
CH4 + H2O ⇌ CO + 3H2
Steam Reforming of methane carry out at high temperatures (700-1100 oC) in the presence of metal based catalyst.
Catalytic Reforming is used to transform distilled crude oil with low octane number into reformates which are liquid products with high octane number for gasoline blending and into high-value aromatics. In the reforming process, paraffins and naphthenes are transformed to aromatic hydrocarbons over a nobel metal based acidic catalyst at high temperatures.
Petrosadid offers a wide range of reforming catalysts.
