Oxidation Catalysts (OC)

Oxidation catalysts are used in various applications from diesel engines to industrial plants. The task is always the conversion of hazardous compounds like carbon monoxide (CO), volatile organic compounds (VOC), formaldehyde (CH2O) and other hydrocarbons (HC) to the nontoxic products carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O). This reaction is called total oxidation. Mainly precious metals like platinum and palladium are used as active components along with special promoters and binders which are added to maximize catalytic activity and durability. Oxides with very high surface area are used to support the precious metals and together, these materials are coated onto different types of ceramic or metallic substrates.

The oxidation catalysts from INTERKAT are designed for high efficiency and a long lifetime regarding thermal aging, poisoning or deactivation by ash to reduce the required amount of expensive precious metals. Also the Sulphur tolerance of our oxidation catalysts is unique. This is why our cutting edge technology leads to cost savings for our customers.

Based on these features INTERKAT technologies are capable to cover numerous applications like the exhaust aftertreatment of diesel engines or combined heat and power plants (CHP), roasteries, ovens, spray lines, etc. and therefore account to a cleaner environment.
