Catalyst Feeder

An field investigation was combined with a numerical examination to evaluate the performance of a dry catalyst feeder

A combination of the head deflection under pressure and some manufacturing issues led to premature bypassing of the catalyst and resulted in an accelerated reaction rate

Design changes and evaluation of the existing equipment led to improved controllable feed with a narrower reaction temperature.
