Protect your catalyst and your profitability.

Crystaphase poison control tackles poisons to protect your valuable catalyst.

Crystaphase Poison Control is a powerful bodyguard for your catalyst. Nickel, vanadium, arsenic, silicon and others cause premature catalyst deactivation – leading ultimately to downtime and loss of revenue.

Whether you’re dealing with arsenic that can bring down your reactor at ppb concentrations, silicon that can brute-force your reactor into shutdown, or heavy metals that can render your catalyst effectively inert, Crystaphase poison control can take the hit. By sorbing these contaminants before they can reach your catalyst bed, Crystaphase poison control lets your catalyst work unimpeded — restoring throughput, helping you limit temperature rise, and improving yield.

What’s more, when used as part of an integrated filtration solution, Crystaphase poison control can enhance your catalyst performance and extend catalyst life and cycle time with more efficienct use of space. The results: smoother operation and greater profitability.
