Attrition resistant bulk iron catalysts and processes for preparing and using same
Jothimurugesan, K., Goodwin, J. G., & Gangwal, S. (2007). IPC No. U.S.Attrition resistant bulk iron catalysts and processes for preparing and using same (Patent No. 7259286.)
An attrition resistant precipitated bulk iron catalyst is
prepared from iron oxide precursor and a binder by spray drying.
The catalysts are preferably used in carbon monoxide hydrogenation
processes such as Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. These catalysts are
suitable for use in fluidized-bed reactors, transport reactors and,
especially, slurry bubble column reactors.
