A RANGE of multipoint temperature assemblies is now available from Okazaki Manufacturing Company (OMC), which is suitable for all types of process applications, including crude oil storage tanks, hydrocarbon cracking units, chemical reactors and desulphurisation catalyst bed reactors.
This new capability supports both isotropic and orthotropic materials for engineers simulating fluid flow through media such as filters and catalyst beds.
Some of the important applications include: to check the packing of catalyst bed (in chemical plants) which is often critically important in ensuring that a process operates at highest efficiency.
Catalytic combustion using raised temperatures (392-752F/200-400C) and supported catalyst beds, often used with noble metals such as platinum or palladium, can be very effective in reducing fumes to basic elemental constituents including nitrogen and hydrogen, and eliminating VOCS.
