A method and apparatus for selectively oxidizing the carbon monoxide present in a mixture of gases, including hydrogen, to carbon dioxide is disclosed. Oxygen or an oxygen-containing gas mixture is introduced at locations along the latter portion of the reaction chamber in an isothermal reactor to selectively oxidize the carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide and to suppress the reverse to water-shift reaction, which produces carbon monoxide and water from carbon dioxide and hydrogen.
An isothermal reactor comprising: (a) a fin block comprising: (1) an inner surface and an outer surface; (2) a plurality of heat transfer surfaces extending substantially perpendicularly from said inner surface; (3) at least one internal passageway for circulating a thermal fluid therethrough for supplying heat to or removing heat from said reactor; (b) a gas distribution plate comprising an inside surface and an outside surface, said inside surface of said gas distribution plate positioned substantially perpendicular to and in contact with said heat tra...
