A catalyst mounting technique for close temperature control

Authors


Abstract

A novel technique for mounting the Cambron-McKim silver catalyst has been developed which provides a highly conducting metal path between the catalyst and the temperature control medium. Its effectiveness as a means of maintaining control over a highly exothermic reaction has been demonstrated in a small pilot plant for the oxidation of ethylene to ethylene oxide.

Abstract

Une nouvelle technique est développée pour le montage du catalyseur d'argent Cambron-McKim qui permet une forte conduction entre le medium de contrǒle de température et le catalyseur. On a démontré son efficacité pour maintenir le contrǒle d'une réaction très exothermique, soit l'oxydation de l'éthylène en oxyde d'éthylène.
