Primary reformer

Pressure measurement at the inlet of the primary reformer

Process data

Measuring task:
Pressure measurement
Measuring point:
Measuring range up to:
30 bar
Methane, water vapour
Process temperature:
+800 ... +870 °C
Process pressure:
+25 … +30 bar
Special challenges:
High temperatures


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.
