Abstract

798,741. Producing combustible gases. GAS COUNCIL. Aug. 13, 1954 [March 9, 1953], No. 6499/53. Class 55 (2). Gases containing carbon monoxide, hydrogen and methane are obtained by subjecting methanol vapour to the action of a catalyst or catalysts capable of promoting on the one hand the decomposition of methanol on to carbon monoxide and hydrogen and, on the other, the synthesis of methane from carbon monoxide and hydrogen, the temperature conditions being controlled to give a gas containing a desired proportion of methane to carbon monoxide and hydrogen. The methanol vapour may be passed in one stream over a catalyst or catalysts or as shown in Fig. 2, it may be passed over the catalysts in two streams, one stream over a catalyst promoting the decomposition reaction and the other stream over a catalyst promoting the synthesis reaction. Methanol vapour is produced in a boiler 1 and passes through a heat-exchanger 8 where it is heated by the gases leaving the reaction vessel 10. The methanol vapour is then split into two streams, one passing via line 19 through a bed of catalyst in vessel 10 to form a gas containing methane, while the other stream passes via line 18 through a catalytic mass contained in tubes 23 which are embedded in the catalytic mass in vessel 10 to produce a gas containing carbon monoxide and methane. The mixed gases pass out through the heat-exchanger 8, water condensing therein may be removed through pipe 16. The vessel 10 has an insulating jacket 12 and heat liberated by the reaction in the vessel 10 is sufficient to maintain the temperature for the reaction in the tubes 24. Initially the catalyst in vessel 10 is heated by passing a hot inert gas through the vessel. Suitable catalysts for the decomposition are alumina or zinc oxide and for the synthesis nickel or cobalt, a mixture of alumina and nickel is suitable for simultaneous promotion of both reactions. The temperature employed is somewhat above 300‹ C. and the methanol may be produced by synthesis from a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen produced by the gasification of solid carbonaceous fuel.
