Axens launches new member of catalyst family

Published by , Senior Editor

Building on over 120 years of cumulative experience in catalytic reforming, established on the success of the Symphony® Catalysts P/PR 100 Series (P 152, PR 150 & PR 156), Axens has announced the commercialisation of the new P/PR 200 Series in the Symphony family.

This year, Axens celebrates the tenth anniversary of Symphony, its suite of high performance reforming catalysts.

Symphony consists in industrially proven, high-performance, top-stability reforming catalysts together with an outstanding hydrothermal resistance, covering continuous catalyst regeneration (CCR), semi-regenerative and cyclic applications.

An extended pilot testing programme demonstrates that the new P/PR 200 Series offers higher activity and stability compared to the former generation while improving the averaged product selectivity (reformate and hydrogen). This provides a boost in terms of unit economics while offering higher flexibility in operation. For example, the new P/PR 200 Series offers the possibility to short load the unit, to process more naphtha, or to extend the time-on-stream factor together with an improvement of the averaged selectivity, reflecting Axens’ commitment to obtain the most of every barrel and ensure toptimum economic value.

Axens notes that it has already obtained several awards with this new P/PR 200 Series.
