Hydrogen Plant - 82,500 NM3/HR (3,084,000 SCFH)
Hydrogen Plant - 82,500 NM3/HR (3,084,000 SCFH)
Stock # 547
Capacity 90 MMCFD

Used 70 MMSCFD hydrogen plant, (2) trains with 95% purity. Technology provided by Foster Wheeler. The two trains share a natural gas feed system which includes two feed compressors, one recycle compressor, a feed pre-heater furnace, and a hydro-desulfurizer vessel. The Hydrogen Production Trains are nearly identical and are completely independent downstream of the common feed system. 1,200 mt/day of food grade carbon dioxide (CO2) was also produced from the plant. Each train was originally designed to produce 70.0 MMCFD hydrogen, capacity can be increased to rates of 90 MMCFD due to improved operating procedures and the de-bottlenecking of plant equipment. Low turndown – the entire complex can be run at 40 MMSCFD of hydrogen (one train down and one running at 40% capacity). Hydrogen purity improved up to 99% when running at low capacity. Honeywell Experion DCS process control system available with software and backed up database. Plant built in 1966 and shut down in 2018. Plant had major upgrades during the time, last upgrade in 2016. New radiant section tubes, Incoloy outlet pigtails and Incoloy outlet collection headers installed recently in both A-train and B-train. With conservative reformer temperatures, the tubes could have over 10 years of life. The A-Train reformer has a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system with upgraded honeycomb catalyst for controlling reformer burner emissions while the B-Train reformer uses Low-NOx burners to accomplish the same. The plant originally ran with naphtha feed to the reformer, necessary additional equipment still in the plant. All documents are available.

Capacity 51,000 Nm3/hr (46.5 MMSCFD)

***Unique Opportunity to Acquire Existing Large SMR and Convert to Hydrogen Plant*** 51,000 NM3/HR (46.5 MMSCFD) Steam Methane Reformer is located in Lake Charles, LA with direct access to natural gas and hydrogen pipeline. Unit is Linde-designed down-fired SMR that includes feed preparation, reformer, syngas cooling, steam generation, hydrogen separation, carbon dioxide removal section (amine section), and carbon dioxide compression for recycle. The SMR has 120 radiant-section catalyst tubes in three rows with 40 tubes in each row. Originally built in 1994 as part of a hydrogen plant, the SMR was initially shut down in 2005. In 2015, the unit was converted from a full-scale hydrogen plant to a syngas plant to feed an adjacent gas-to-liquids plant. SMR was redesigned and upgraded by Linde to improve several sections and to increase the syngas capacity as well as to add new radiant tubes an (36) new low NOx burners. All 36 burners are forced draft, natural gas down-fired, arch mounted burners. They are all single-jet, low-NOx units from Zeeco. The burners are designed to utilize a mixture of hydrogen and natural gas. The plant is being kept under a nitrogen blanket. All electric motors are being “bumped” weekly or they have been removed and are in climate-controlled storage. Many spare parts are available. Full technical documentation available. Unit can be purchased with real estate and Fischer Tropsch GTL Plant #543 and Wax Upgrade Plant #544 for operation in place.

Hydrogen Plant - 425 Nm3/hr (15,000 SCFH)
Hydrogen Plant - 425 Nm3/hr (15,000 SCFH)
Stock # 467
Capacity 425 Nm3/hr (15,000 SCFH)

Used 425 Nm3/hr (15,000 SCFH) Hydrogen Plant built by Cotting Industries in 2016. Most equipment is skid mounted. The plant has a double-tube steam methane reformer that is a compact furnace enclosure with a single reaction tube fired on two sides. The furnace enclosure is wide at the bottom to accommodate the burners and tapered at a height several feet above the length of the flames to a narrow upper section. This configuration allows combustion to be completed in the lower section bringing the feed/steam mixture quickly to its reaction temperature. The intermediate side walls channel the flue gas into a turbulent flow condition at the upper section to improve heat transfer and maintain a uniform tube wall temperature along the length of the reaction tube. The reaction tube consists of an annular portion filled with catalyst and a center return tube. The reaction tube is supported from the bottom and allowed to thermally expand upward through the use of a counterweight system attached at the top of the tube. The steam/hydrocarbon feed gas mixture enters the annular section of the reformer reaction tube at the bottom. The feed gas passes upward through the catalyst bed and then downward through the center return tube. Thus, the feed gas flows through the catalyst bed in single pass, co-current heat exchange relationship with the hot combustion gas in the furnace enclosure. Then, the reformed gas flows back to the bottom of the reformer through the center return tube in single pass, counter current heat exchange relationship with the upward flowing feed gas in the catalyst space. The combination of the furnace enclosure geometry and a reaction tube with a center return tube results in an even temperature profile over the length of the tube while maintaining a high thermal efficiency in the furnace.

Hydrogen Plant - 1,416 Nm3/hr (50,000 SCFH)
Hydrogen Plant - 1,416 Nm3/hr (50,000 SCFH)
Stock # 515
Capacity 1,416 Nm3/hr (50,000 SCFH)

Used 1,416 Nm3/hr (50,000 SCFH) Hydrogen Plant, designed by Hydro-Chem (a Linde company). Started in 2007, shut down in 2018. Dismantled and ready for immediate shipment. The hydrogen production process involves feed preparation, desulfurization, catalytic reforming, carbon monoxide shift conversion, hydrogen purification through PSA, and waste heat recovery with steam generation. Natural gas, primarily methane, enters the hydrogen plant at 75-120 psig. It splits into two streams, with one portion fueling the burner and the rest used for hydrogen production. The natural gas for the burner is regulated to 20-30 psig, with additional safety switches in place for compressor shutdown. The remaining natural gas is compressed to 245 psig in a reciprocating piston-type compressor, then heated to 150-225°F. The natural gas passes through desulfurizers containing zinc oxide on alumina catalyst, reducing sulfur content to less than 0.2 ppm. Sulfur-free natural gas mixes with steam, heated to 650°F, and enters reformer catalyst tubes. Reactions occur, producing hydrogen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane, water, nitrogen, and trace gases. Process gas undergoes high-temperature shift conversion in the presence of copper-promoted iron on alumina catalyst. The process gas undergoes staged cooling, then enters a PSA system with four adsorbent vessels. Adsorption cycles remove impurities, producing pure hydrogen and vent gas. Waste heat from various plant areas is recovered to heat incoming natural gas, superheat the gas/steam mixture, preheat boiler feed water, heat the burner air, and generate surplus steam for plant and export. Instrument air (>65 psig), nitrogen (>70 psig), and city water (300 psig) are used for plant operations, including cleaning and cooling. The PSA system operates on repeated pressure cycles for impurity adsorption and adsorbent regeneration.
