Title: INDUCTION HEATING OF ENDOTHERMIC REACTIONS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a reactor system for carrying out an endothermic catalytic chemical reaction in a given temperature range (T) upon bringing a reactant into contact with a catalyst material. The reactor system comprises a reactor unit arranged to accommodate catalyst material comprising one or more ferromagnetic macroscopic supports susceptible for induction heating where the one or more ferromagnetic macroscopic supports are ferromagnetic at temperatures up to an upper limit of the given temperature range (T). The one or more ferromagnetic macroscopic supports are coated with an oxide, and the oxide is impregnated with catalytically active particles. The reactor system moreover comprises an induction coil arranged to be powered by a power source supplying alternating current and being positioned so as to generate an alternating magnetic field within the reactor unit upon energization by the power source, whereby the catalyst material is heated to a temperature within said temperature range (T) by means of the alternating magnetic field, where the catalyst material is arranged to be heated by said alternating magnetic field by induction of a magnetic flux in the material. The invention also relates to catalyst material and a process for carrying out an endothermic catalytic chemical reaction.
