Two main factors influence our methanol synthesis flowsheets:
- The syngas feed composition determines the exact design of the methanol loop.
- As the conversion reaction is exothermic, the converter designs vary based on how they remove the reaction heat.
Johnson Matthey offer three different methanol synthesis technologies:
- axial steam-raising converter (A-SRC)
- radial steam-raising converter (R-SRC)
- tube-cooled converter (TCC)
