A hydrocarbon fuel reformer for producing diatomic hydrogen gas is disclosed. The reformer includes a first reaction vessel, a shift reactor vessel annularly disposed about the first reaction vessel, including a first shift reactor zone, and a first helical tube disposed within the first shift reactor zone having an inlet end communicating with a water supply source. The water supply source is preferably adapted to supply liquid-phase water to the first helical tube at flow conditions sufficient to ensure discharge of liquid-phase and steam-phase water f...
We claim: 1. A shift reactor for subjecting carbon monoxide and water to a water-gas shift reaction to produce carbon dioxide and diatomic hydrogen comprising: a shift reactor vessel including a first shift reaction zone, the first shift reaction zone having a first shift catalyst bed, an input end for receiving reformate constituents including carbon monoxide and an outlet end for discharging shift-reacted constituents including carbon dioxide and hydrogen gas; and, a first helical tube disposed within the first shift reaction zone and in direct contac...
