Compressed to approximately 370 PSIG at 190 degrees F. Feed gas stream is preheated to approximately 750 degrees F. Uses cobalt-moly hydrotreating catalyst. Desulfurizers and zinc oxide catalyst. Superheated to 950 F in the reformer convection section reformer feed preheat coil. Syngas reforming at a temperature of approximately 1440 degrees F. Flue gas from the reformer at approximately 1900 degrees F.

Hydrogen Plant - 2,350 Nm3/hr
Stock # 450
Capacity 2,350 ...

Used Howe-Baker process Hydrogen Plant for sale. Natural gas enters the plant at approximately 30 PSIG and 90 degrees F, and is compressed to approximately 300 PSIG at 160 degrees F before it goes into desulfurizer. The desulfurized stream is preheated to 950 degrees F, and then mixes with steam. The mixture reacts with a catalyst to generate a stream of hydrogen, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, water, and methane as the gas passes through the reformer. The gas flows into the Shift Converter vessel where steam and carbon monoxide are catalyzed forming more hydrogen and carbon dioxide. The process gas stream is cooled before entering the condensate drum and then enter the Pressure Swing Absorption (PSA) System, which mixes the cold condensate and boiler feedwater for the deaerator. The PSA purification system uses adsorption to remove all impurities such as carbon monoxide, methane, carbon dioxide and nitrogen, producing a high purity hydrogen product. All steam is generated by recovering waste heat.

Hydrogen Plant - 2,550 Nm3/h
Stock # 452
Capacity 2,550 ...

Used HydroChem process hydrogen plant for sale. Built in 1980, shut down in 2012. Produce hydrogen product at 99.99% purity at 200 psig. Its reformer originally had 20 tubes, now totally 15 tubes available. Waste heat boiler generates up to 5,000 Lbs/hr steam at 250 psig. Natural gas compressor and reformer burner are missing. Catalyst still in vessels, need to be discharged and disposed. PSA vessels replaced in 1998, switch vales installed in 2008/2009.

Stock # 457
Capacity 15.7 ...

Hydro-Chem (now Linde) designed 15.7 MMSCFD (18,500 Nm3/hr) syngas reforming (hydrogen and carbon monoxide) plant almost like new immediately available for purchase. The plant was built in 2016 and operated for only a few months. This plant was designed to use landfill gas and/or natural gas to produce synthesis gas, which is then converted into paraffinic naphtha, diesel and wax by Fischer-Tropsch process. The syngas output flow rate is at 500 °F and 175 psig. The syngas has the following composition (mol %): Hydrogen 43.01, Carbon Monoxide 16.37, Carbon Dioxide 8.34, Nitrogen 3.90, Methane 1.42, Argon 0.16, Water 26.79. Capacity may be varied from the control panel from 100% of design to 40% of design. The syngas can also be further processed depending on the desired final products such as ammonia and methanol.
