BeaverMatic® Endothermic Generator provides manufacturing facilities with the flexibility of allowing on-site production of power protective atmospheres for operating more cost effectively and efficiently. Endothermic generators produce endothermic gas through the reaction of a rich gas/air mixture passing over a nickel catalyst in a retort maintained at approximately 1950°F.
Actual gas produced is nitrogen, carbon monoxide, hydrogen and water vapor with methane. Gas percentages are controlled by adjusting the feed gas/air ratio. A typical unit has two retorts with vertical bottom to top gas flow. The BeaverMatic Generator provides consistent gas mixture and flow using a retort filled with a ceramic material impregnated with a nickel catalyst for improved longevity and cost efficiency.
