An apparatus and method are provided for the two-stage selective oxidation of carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide in a fuel stream comprising hydrogen and carbon monoxide. The apparatus includes primary and secondary reaction chambers, which deliver a hydrogen-rich outlet gas stream having a carbon monoxide concentration of less than about 5 ppm. When an increase in the carbon monoxide concentration in the outlet stream of the primary reaction chamber is detected, then the flow through the primary reaction chamber is reversed. The selective oxidizer employ...
A method for controlling the rate of selective oxidation of carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide in a fuel stream comprising hydrogen and carbon monoxide introduced to a reaction chamber having disposed therein an amount of catalyst for promoting oxidation of carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide, said reaction chamber further comprising a fuel stream inlet, an oxygen-containing gas stream inlet having a valve for regulating flow therethrough, an outlet, a first thermocouple which is located in the reactor chamber downstream from said fuel stream inlet a distan...
