Phoenix Equipment has for sale a 1,300 metric TPD Methanol Synthesis Gas Loop. The methanol loop processes raw synthesis gas and recycle gas in the presence of a zinc / copper catalyst. The partially reformed gas stream from the primary reformer is sent to the secondary reformer where it is reacted with oxygen and most of the remaining methane converted to synthesis gas. The synthesis gas leaving the secondary reformer is cooled, compressed and sent to the converter loop where carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and hydrogen are reacted to produce crude methanol,
a mixture mainly of methanol and water.
