Catalyst Services

In time the diatomaceous vanadiumpentoxide catalyst residing in the convertor becomes less active through thermal degradation, dust buildup, decreasing activity of the catalyst itself, poor gas distribution in the catalyst bed, ...

To get your convert yield back to par H2SO4.pm offers following catalyst services:

  • Measure your convertor or plant yield through our CONVERTOR.YIELD or PLANT.YIELD gas analysis system. This can be done before and after catalyst exchange to check the promises of your catalyst supplier;
