Copper catalyst

Trade name: Copper catalyst TMC-3/1, TMC-3/1-K, TMC-3/1-Cs
Chemical name: Copper catalyst
PKWiU classification:

Grupa Azoty S.A. (Tarnów)

TMC-3/1 catalysts are coprecipitation type catalysts. They are provided in CuO, ZnO, Al2O3 oxide form. The active ingredient is metallic copper. The presence of caesium compounds guarantees high catalyst selectivity, while the addition of potassium compounds increases the catalytic deposit's resistance to toxins. The catalyst's active formed is obtained through a reduction process conducted in the reactor.
The main properties of copper catalyst TMC-3/1 include:

  • high and stable performance,
  • selectivity,
  • high mechanical strength,
  • low flow resistance,
  • long lifespan.

Application and useSee more

Low temperature conversion of carbon oxide with water vapour in processes of obtaining hydrogen, syngas and ammonia.

Packaging and transportSee more
The copper catalyst is packed in polyethylene bags placed in 210 litre metal drums. The drums are tightly sealed for protection against moisture and contamination. Different packing is permissible upon agreement with the customer, provided it will secure the product equally well as the type mentioned above.
Transport conditions should prevent mechanical damage to the drums and exposure of the catalyst to moisture and contamination.
The copper catalyst is a hazardous product according to RID and ADR, IMDG and ICAO/IATA regulations:
  • class 9,
  • packing group III,
  • UN number 3077.
StorageSee more

The copper catalyst should be stored in the producer's original tightly sealed packaging, in rooms protected against moisture and contamination, at room temperature. Drums may be stacked maximum two high.
