Product Announcement from Saint-Gobain NorPro
Our catalyst customers take the carriers and add metals (often precious metals) and dopants to create finished catalysts.
- Silicon Carbide
The finished catalysts are installed in processing units called fixed bed or slurry bed reactors.
Petrochemical and refinery plants use catalysts to efficiently convert reactants, increase yield and reduce energy consumption.
We can form almost anything
NorPro forming technology enables almost anything to be formed into practical shapes. Various extrusion technologies, shaping, UniSphere generation (by a new, unique proprietary process), spray drying, agglomeration and other techniques are utilized. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques are employed to invent special shapes for particular applications.
- Extrudates: from 1.2 mm diameter
- Pellets: 3 - > 25 mm diameter. Length/diameter from 0.3 - >2
- Rings: 3 - 75 mm diameter. Length/diameter from 0.3 - >2
- Spheres: 1 - 13 mm diameter
Other special shapes developed for particular applications: Trilobes, quadrilobes, fluted rings
