Fischer Tropsch synthesis, coolant, recycle,
Fischer Tropsch Plants
Fischer Tropsch reaction is exothermic, requiring rapid removal of low grade heat to avoid catalyst damage and ensure desirable product mix. Heat removed from the reaction is often wasted.
This technology is comprised of an Organic Rankine Cycle that uses a product stream from the Fischer Tropsch reactor as its working fluid to convert the low grade reactor heat into shaft work within the plant.
