Clariant launches LTS chloride guard catalyst ShiftGuard 200

MUNICH, GERMANY: Clariant International Ltd said that it has launched the low temperature shift (LTS) chloride guard ShiftGuard 200.

ShiftGuard 200 effectively adsorbs and retains chlorides so that the downstream main LTS catalyst, such as Clariant’s ShiftMax 217, is protected.

Chloride is a typical catalyst poison in an ammonia or hydrogen plant that leads to an increasing and irreversible reduction of catalyst activity and mechanical stability. This can result in a significant catalyst lifetime reduction if Clariant’s ShiftGuard 200 is not utilized.

In tests, ShiftGuard 200 demonstrated an outstanding chloride removal performance and a better mechanical and hydrothermal stability as well as a high added low temperature CO shift activity with low MeOH byproduct formation, Clariant said.

ShiftGuard 200 represents, if combined with a superior LTS catalyst like ShiftMax 217, an ideal technical solution for ammonia and hydrogen plants to increase their process reliability and production efficiency, the company said.

ShiftGuard 200 is completely chromium free and therefore fulfils the criteria of a sustainable product by avoidance of critical metals, adhering to the reach regulations of the European Union.

“The combination ShiftGuard 200 and ShiftMax 217 represents the perfect combination to increase the efficiency of both ammonia and hydrogen plants. The new product will lead to energy savings, higher production rates and overall costs savings for our customers,” said Dr Harald Dialer, VP Syngas, business unit catalysts, Clariant.
