Product Description

Partial Hydrogen generating plant engineered by Hydro-Chem built in 1980. Design capacity is 90,000 scfh at 200 psig with a purity of 99.99% pure hydrogen - was running on 10 of its 20 tubes for 45,000 scfh capacity. Reformer can be fired on natural gas or propane - same burner. Waste heat boiler generating 3,000 to 5,000 #/hr export steam at 250 psig. PSA plant (4 psa vessels replaced in 1998) with Jamesbury valves kept up to date, Quench pot design. Plant is missing small natural gas compressor, heat exchangers, and pumps. Has new tubes, new reformer and shift converter catalyst. Five (5) spare tubes available. Plant has just recently shut down in mid 2012, and proper shutdown procedures were followed - still under nitrogen blanket. Reformer tubes are 6.625" OD, 5.25" ID, 30.825" long and made of alloy HP50 (also known as 25/35).
