Denstone® deltaP® is the revolutionary bed support media invented by Saint-Gobain NorPro to provide additional value over traditional spheres in fixed bed catalyst applications for the hydrocarbon processing industry. Denstone® deltaP® media offers such benefits as reduced fill cost, maintaining a lower pressure drop and potentially reduced volume of total support media, allowing you to add more adsorbent media or catalyst to your reactor.
This video shows the performance of Denstone® deltaP® support media during a migration test designed to mimic actual process conditions.
The video demonstrates iron sulfide gum formation dropping in and scattering within the pores of the MacroTrap Guard Bed Media.
The video demonstrates the affect of pressure drop with the use of MacroTrap guard bed media in place of hold down media. The example shows the need for skimming much more frequently due to fouling and how MacroTrap media improves the catalyst life cycle.
MacroTrap® XPore 80 is a highly macroporous media that protects the catalyst bed from premature fouling due to unwanted particulates accumulating on the catalyst, thus reducing its activity. Reduced catalyst activity could lead to undesirable return on investment on the main catalyst bed. MacroTrap guard bed work by "trapping" contaminants in the ceramic media.
