An effective catalyst based on ceramic block support with honeycomb structure made of synthetic cordierite with a low coefficient of temperature linear expansion has been developed. Flameless heat generator based on oxidation of methane or propane-butane mixture has been designed. Laboratory and bench trials have showed that the effectiveness of the generator is identical to the foreign analogues. The manufacture of self-sustained flameless heat catalytic generators and catalysts have been launched.
Keywords: catalyst for flameless methane or propane-butane mixture oxidation, catalytic heat generator, cordierite, honeycomb structure cells
