The application of Water-Gas-Shift (WGS) converters are growing in the industry due to the increase of hydrogen demand. Water-Gas-Shift reaction, which is essentially converting toxic carbon monoxide and steam into carbon dioxide and hydrogen, is a major component in the steam reforming process. There are a lot of researches and literatures into the catalysts and reaction kinetics. A mathematical model for such reactor will show the conversion alone the reactor and its concentration profile, which can be used for calculating catalysts weight and reactor sizes, it can also be used for process optimization.
