Application

In the primary reformer, methane gas and water vapour react into hydrogen, oxygen, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide at a pressure of around 30 bar and a temperature of 870 °C. Since the temperature in the reformer is very high, pressure is measured at the inlet via a temperature adapter. The temperature also needs to be measured in order to regulate the process.
