Packed Tube

Optimization of a single material for both catalytic and separative functions is challenging. Few materials have the ability to transport the desired component and act as a catalyst for the desired reaction. Furthermore, even for materials that possess both characteristics, precise matching of the rates of reaction and transport is difficult. To overcome these limitations, a packed membrane tube configuration has been employed. In such a configuration, a catalyst is packed in the bore of a tubular membrane. Reactants are fed into the catalyst zone and products have the potential to be transported through the membrane walls and out of the reaction zone. This configuration offers tremendous flexibility in the selection of the catalyst and membrane to be used. Both homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts have been employed in this configuration.
