Abstract

This study measured and analyzed fixed bed heat transfer parameters for different size and shape packing materials that might be used for steam methane reforming. These parameters were compared to those found in the literature for similar packing types with fair agreement. The monoliths and 4-hole cylinders gave better radial heat transfer than the raschig rings; however the monoliths are too brittle for industrial processes.
