Abstract [en]

The effect of ash salts on Co-based Fisher–Tropsch catalysts was studied using an aerosol deposition technique. The major elements in the ash were found to be K, S and Cl. The ash was deposited on a calcined catalyst as dry particles with an average diameter of approx. 350 nm. The loading of ash particles was varied by varying the time of exposure to the particles in a gas stream. Catalyst characterization did not reveal significant differences in cobalt dispersion, reducibility, surface area, pore size, or pore volume between the reference and the catalysts with ash particles deposited. Activity measurements showed that following a short exposure to the mixed ash salts (30 min), there were no significant loss of activity, but a minor change in selectivity of the catalyst . Extended exposure (60 min) led to some activity loss and changes in selectivity. However, extending the exposure time and thus the amount deposited as evidenced by elemental analysis did not lead to a further drop in activity. This behavior is different from that observed with pure potassium salts, and is suggested to be related to the larger size of the aerosol particles deposited. The large aerosol particles used here were probably not penetrating the catalyst bed, and to some extent formed an external layer on the catalyst bed. The ash salts are therefore not able to penetrate to the pore structure and reach the Co active centers, but are mixed with the catalyst and detected in the elemental analysis.
