Thermal stability and SO2 resistance of Pd/Rh-perovskite based three-way catalyst wash-coated on cordierite monoliths

The effect of hydrothermal aging and SO2 poisoning on the three-way catalytic performance of dispersed Pd/Rh-based and Pd/Rh perovskite-based catalysts were studied by using a dynamic activity test system that simulates redox fluctuations of gasoline engine exhaust conditions. Both catalysts were supported on ceria-zirconia-alumina and wash-coated on cordierite monoliths and were characterized by ICP-OES, BET, XRD, TEM-EDX, DRIFTS, and CO chemisorption. Their performance was very close when the catalysts were fresh but, after 3 h of hydrothermal aging at 1000 degrees C, the dispersed Pd/Rh-based catalyst lost its performance especially with respect to C3H8 and NO conversions; however, the Pd/Rh perovskite-based catalyst kept its activity. Parallel to that, CO uptake capacity losses after hydrothermal aging were 85% and 30% for the dispersed metallic catalyst and the perovskite-based catalyst, respectively. Moreover, 20 ppm SO2 exposure decreased CO uptake capacities by 61% and 48% for the two catalysts, respectively.


Development of three way catalytic converter for automotive exhaust gas
Bayram, Bilal; Külah, Görkem; Önal, Işık; Department of Chemical Engineering (2021-7-9)
In this study, a novel perovskite-based three-way catalyst (LaFe0.57Co0.37Pd0.06O3/Ce0.8Zr0.2O2/Al2O3) with high performance, thermal stability and SO2 poisoning resistance was developed. The performance of the developed catalyst was compared to a standard catalyst based on dispersed metal (Pd/Rh/ Ce0.8Zr0.2O2 / Al2O3). Performance evaluations were carried out in a dynamic activity test system that simulates redox fluctuations in the exhaust of gasoline engines. ICP-OES, BET surface area, X-ray diffraction,...
Thermal characterization and model-free kinetics of biodiesel sample
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2015-11-01)
In this study, combustion and pyrolysis behaviours of methanol route biodiesel were investigated using thermal analysis techniques known as simultaneous thermogravimetry and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) at different heating rates. Reaction regions, peak temperatures, mass loss and heat flow rates of the biodiesel sample are determined using TG-DTG and DSC data. It was found that as the heating rate of the reactions increased, peak temperatures of the reactions shifted higher temperatures, implyin...
Thermal characterization of crude oils by pressurized differential scanning calorimeter (PDSC)
Kök, Mustafa Verşan; Nurgaliev, Danis K. (Elsevier BV, 2019-06-01)
In this research, pressurized differential scanning calorimeter (PDSC) were used to estimate the thermal and kinetic behaviour of two different crude oils from Tatarstan oil fields under three different pressures (100, 600, 2000 kPa) at a constant heating rate (10 degrees C/min). The heat flow curves of both crude oils indicated two reaction regions known as low temperature oxidation (LTO) and high temperature oxidation (HTO). The reaction intervals were shifted to lower temperature regions with the increas...
Experimental investigation of CO tolerance in high temperature PEM fuel cells
DEVRİM, YILSER; Albostan, Ayhan; Devrim, Huseyin (Elsevier BV, 2018-10-04)
In the present work, the effect of operating a high temperature proton exchange membrane fuel cell (HT-PEMFC) with different reactant gases has been investigated throughout performance tests. Also, the effects of temperature on the performance of a HT-PEMFC were analyzed at varying temperatures, ranging from 140 degrees C to 200 degrees C. Increasing the operating temperature of the cell increases the performance of the HT-PEMFC. The optimum operating temperature was determined to be 160 degrees C due to th...
End effect evaluation in rheological measurement of drilling fluids using Coutte coaxial cylinder viscometer
Gücüyener, I. Hakki; Kök, Mustafa Verşan; Batmaz, Taner (2002-05-01)
This paper demonstrates the order of influence of end effects on the application of a theory to determine and correct the end effects in Couette coaxial cylinder rotational viscometers, which are commonly used for the rheological evaluation of drilling fluids. It is found that higher shear stresses are measured due to end effects and, consequently, this error bearing shear stress-shear rate data leads to unreliable predictions of the rheological parameters. Evaluation of the shear stress-shear rate data obt...
