Ammonia cracking is the process by which ammonia is decomposed towards hydrogen and nitrogen over a catalyst (based on base or pgm metals). It's typically used in applications where hydrogen is needed as either an energy source or to form downstream manufacturing processes.
Johnson Matthey supplies ammonia cracking catalysts, suitable for use over a wide range of temperatures. Our experience is based on more than 50 years’ operating experience in cracking applications.
Our ammonia cracking catalyst product range includes:
KATALCO™ 27-2 series for high temperature cracking
KATALCO 27-612 series for low temperature cracking
Both types of catalyst can be manufactured in a range of sizes and give dependable, long and active lifetimes.
