What is a catalyst? And what is a catalyst recovery filtration system?

Catalysts for petroleum refining are essential since most processes after the crude unit are catalytic. An important component of a hydrogenation system is catalyst filtration.

When fine catalyst particles like platinum, palladium, rhodium, rhenium, Raney nickel and rhodenum are present after it is utilized, catalyst recovery systems are typically employed to recover the precious catalyst. Because these catalysts cost a lot of money, recycling can increase the economical efficiency of the company.

The catalyst recovery filtration system completes the recycling of catalysts through automatic filtration and concentration, magnetic separation, fine filtration, and membrane separation processes.

What can we benefit from a catalyst recovery filtration system?

When you apply a catalyst recovery filtration system, there are many advantages more than just saving costs. It can help reduce the expensive material losses and reduce waste emissions, at the same time, it reduces the maintenance time and labor costs.

Additionally, using this system is an environmentally-friendly act, it meets all green standard, decreases energy consumption, and improve recovery and purification rates.


The process of catalyst recovery filtration

  • Catalyst primary filtration

Conventional catalyst coarse separation generally uses a settling tank or vacuum filter, this equipment is low cost, and occupies a large area.

The new trend is the cluster catalyst filter, which can be used for the filtration of flammable and explosive gases, toxic body powder, soft particles, and high content of shapable solids, and its high dirt-holding capacity can be used as the pre-stage equipment of centrifugal equipment and drying equipment.

  • Catalyst secondary filtration– magnetic separation

The catalyst often has magnetic particles such as nickel, chromium, molybdenum, iron, platinum, etc.

The magnetic and non-magnetic particles can be separated by selective adsorption of the permanent magnet/electromagnetic filter, and the average particle size of the separated magnetic particles can be controlled by the design and adjustment of the magnetic field.

Weakly magnetic catalysts such as platinum and chromium can be recovered by the electromagnetic filter, which has higher magnetic strength and can recover impurities above 1um.

  • Precise filtration treatment — bag filter housing

After the primary and secondary purification, some of the fine impurities > 0.5um particle size come to this section and are intercepted by deep filtration.
