Low Temperature Shift Catalyst Reduction Procedure
VSG-C111 as supplied contains copper oxide; it is activated for the low temperature shift duty by reducing the copper oxide component to metallic copper with hydrogen. The reaction is highly exothermic. In order to achieve maximum activity, good performance and long life, it is essential that the reduction is conducted under correctly controlled conditions. Great care must be taken to avoid thermal damage during this critical operation.
