Hydrogen Tail Gas Burner

MFB Metal fiber burner



    Hydrogen Tail Gas Burner


        A natural gas/steam reformer with a pressure swing absorption (PSA) system extracts partial H2 produced and dumps ~50% residue H2 to a burner to sustain the endothermic reaction. Short burner flames (IR) are required to preserve reactor’s life at 550 C. MFT has developed a special fiber for this application with great success.
