Picture 10: Concept of a waste air purification unit with a honeycomb catalyst and a ceramic heat exchanger


When a ceramic heat exchanger is used, the heat recovery can reach over 90 %. This saves about 50 % of earth gas in comparison to the metal heat exchanger. […]

Picture 9: Concept of a waste air purification unit using a pellet catalyst and a metal heat exchanger


The picture shows an apparatus which uses a pellet catalyst. The catalyst needs a temperature of about 250 °C. The heating is achieved with earth gas. The hot air which […]

Picture 8: Honeycomb catalyst


Honey comb catalysts exhibit a much higher mechanical stability and will therefore have a much longer lifetime. In this type the catalytic active substance is applied onto a ceramic comb […]

Picture 7: Pellet catalyst


The tests for finding an ideal catalytic process were first conducted using a pellet catalyst. This type of catalyst uses an inert support material as round spheres (“pellets”) on which […]
