Title
(EN) APPARATUS FOR THE CONVERSION OF HYDROCARBONS
(FR) APPAREIL DE CONVERSION DES HYDROCARBURES
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to an apparatus for the conversion of hydrocarbons to hydrogen, and to the conversion process. Fuel processors, or reformers are often used for large-scale conversion of natural gas to hydrogen containing mixtures. Although large fuel processors perform well, small reformers still have some major drawbacks. The object of this invention is to provide an apparatus for the conversion of hydrocarbons to hydrogen rich gas mixtures, that operates at a relatively low temperature, uses air instead of pure oxygen, can be operated at atmospheric pressure, has a low pressure drop, is compact, has low thermal mass and having high thermal efficiency.

L'invention concerne un appareil de conversion des hydrocarbures en hydrogène, et son procédé de conversion. Des processeurs de quantité de carburant, ou des reformeurs sont souvent utilisés dans la conversion à grande échelle de gaz naturel en mélanges contenant de l'hydrogène. Bien que les processeurs de grande quantité de carburant fonctionnent bien, les petits reformeurs possèdent toujours quelques inconvénients majeurs. L'objet de l'invention est de fournir un appareil de conversion des hydrocarbures en mélanges de gaz riche en hydrogène, qui fonctionne à une température relativement basse, qui utilise de l'air au lieu de l'oxygène pure, qui peut être actionné à pression atmosphérique, qui possède une faible chute de pression, qui est compact, qui possède une masse thermique faible et une efficacité thermique élevée.
