Customer Case Study: Equilibar improves Fischer-Tropsch Fuels Research at Auburn University

Back Pressure Regulators at Auburn University

  • Auburn Fischer-Tropsch skid

Researchers around the world use the Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis process to produce liquid fuels from
alternative energy sources such as biomass and natural gas. At Auburn University in Alabama, one
graduate student has incorporated an Equilibar back pressure regulator to dramatically improve their
research of Fischer-Tropsch catalysts.

In the early twentieth century, Franz Fischer and Hans Tropsch developed the Fischer-Tropsch process to produce hydrocarbons from syngas, a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen. The Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis process allows for the production of synthetic fuel from natural gas, coal, and biofuels.
