SML Associates' Hydrogenation of STC & MGS System Benefits

The SML commercial reactor technology has provided exit compositions as high as 36% by wt TCS and is also very energy efficient. The unique hydrogen assisted vaporization allows the use of steam for STC vaporization and the heat recovery reduces the electrical demands to less than 0.1 kW/kg of TCS (including heat losses)

Also known as “cold conversion of STC”- its operating temperature of 550 °C is much less than the hot conversion of STC temperature of ~1100 °C commonly used in Siemens plants
