Material and operational considerations for effective use of palladium composite hydrogen separation membranes in ammonia decomposition membrane reactors
MetadataShow full item record
In this work, the effects on hydrogen permeation of various operating conditions and support materials are explored. The primary topic explored was focused on the viability of pure Pd films to be used in ammonia decomposition catalytic membrane reactors. In such a reactor, the Pd membrane is surrounded by an ammonia decomposition catalyst, which allows hydrogen to be removed simultaneously as the decomposition occurs. To this end, the first section details effects on hydrogen permeance from nitrogen and ammonia adsorption. Essentially, no effects were observed and Pd is proposed as a potential ...
