The pivotal role of an interconnected cellular conductive structure to manage heat removal in compact Fischer–Tropsch fixed-bed reactors

Author affiliations

Abstract

Fischer–Tropsch synthesis is a strongly exothermic process wherein T-management is crucial. In this work, we demonstrate that diluting the catalyst bed with fragments of a conductive material does not grant the same excellent T-control as when the catalyst is randomly packed into a connected cellular structure made of the same material.
