Fundamental investigations for the development of the catalyst fixed bed reactor with an integrated heat exchanger have been made. Experimental investigations to define the heat transfer properties of porous sintered metals with different porosities prove that the structures of these metals show much higher heat conductivity than other permeable structures. Small temperature gradients can therefore control the reaction. A method for the deposition of catalytic materials on the surface of porous sintered metal was developed and catalysts for combustion have been prepared. For the partial oxidation of H(2)S it has been proved that it is possible to produce catalytic reactors having the porous material as a catalytic active surface. A plate-shaped model reactor has been designed and tested, and investigations to characterise porous sintered metal structures, and to optimise their manufacturing conditions, have been carried out.
