Sour gas shift

Shift reactions downstream of gasification units can be carried out without prior removal of the sulfur compounds. For this sour gas shift, we supply the stabilized CoMo catalyst ShiftMax® 820 with high activity within a wide range of steam to gas ratios.

ShiftMax 820 is potassium free, so there is less downstream equipment corrosion and fouling. Furthermore, ShiftMax 820 has a more stable matrix that ensures the catalyst is highly resistant to hydrothermal degrading, and thus can retain the physical strength under severe operation conditions. ShiftMax 820 is currently operating in multiple production facilities.
