Evaluation and Modeling of a High-Temperature, High-Pressure, Hydrogen Separation Membrane for Enhanced Hydrogen Production from the Water-Gas Shift Reaction
A novel configuration for hydrogen production from the water gas shift reaction is proposed, using high temperature to enhance the rate of reaction and employing a hydrogen separation membrane for the collection of the high purity of hydrogen product.
Experimental high-temperature, high-pressure flux measurements have been made on a material that shows promise for such an application. Mixed oxide and metal “cermet” ion-transport disk membranes, fabricated at Argonne National Laboratory, water evaluated for hydrogen permeability on a unique high-temperature, high pressure test unit constructed at the National Energy Technology Laboratory.
