Products

Eickmeyer & Associates, Inc. has developed various catalysts, corrosion inhibitors, and antifoams licensed as CATACARB® products.

CATACARB® products fall under the four following categories:

Organic Catalysts
Inorganic Catalyst
Corrosion Inhibitors
Antifoams

Organic Catalysts
CATACARB® organic catalysts have high activity, are resistant to oxidation, and have the benefit of low vapor losses. Organic catalysts are best suited for the following applications:

  • Ammonia synthesis gas
  • Hydrogen gas
  • Natural gas for pipeline (NG) or liquified natural gas (LNG)
  • Substitute natural gas (SNG)
  • Iron ore reduction gas
  • Methanol synthesis gas

In addition to the above mentioned applications, CATACARB® organic catalysts can be used to convert other Hot Potassium Carbonate (HPC) systems.

Inorganic Catalyst
CATACARB® inorganic catalyst enhances both absorption and stripping efficiencies by more than 60% above those of comparable HPC processes. The inorganic catalyst is a high activity, stable promoter compatible with O2. Furthermore, it offers effective corrosion inhibition, protection against wet CO2 attack, and protection against erosion/corrosion and stress corrosion cracking.

The inorganic catalyst is best suited for the following applications:

  • Ethlyene oxide (EO) recycle gas
  • Flue gas
  • VAM recycle gas
  • Nitrous oxide product stream
  • Autoclave recycle oxygen stream

Corrosion Inhibitors
Our corrosion inhibitor is proven to be very effective. It offers protection against wet CO2 attack, erosion/corrosion, and stress corrosion cracking. The CATACARB® corrosion inhibitor can be regenerated, has low vapor losses, and comes in liquid form for easy handling.

Antifoams
Eickmeyer & Associates, Inc. has developed various silicone and polyglycol based antifoams for use with the HPC system. Depending upon the foaming circumstances, we can help evaluate your best treatment options.
