Multi-tubular membrane reactor system for the methanol production with a total 0.25 m² was successfully designed, constructed, and integrated in the test-rig.
The membrane reactor system consists of the packed bed reactor, followed by the cooler and multi-tubular membrane reactor. The constructed multi-tubular membrane reactor will be used to confirm the overall and the long-term performance with the target syngas conversion of a minimum 33% per pass.
The multi-tubular membrane reactor consists of 7 polymeric membrane tubes in which an isothermal conditions are kept by circulating of the cooling oil. Each membrane has an effective length of 80 cm.
