According to the present invention, a temperature profile within a preferential oxidation reactor is controlled using a two phase water/steam system to provide a temperature range within the reactor (10) which favors the selective oxidation of CO in a hydrogen rich reformate stream. The reformate is flowed in a mixture with oxygen over a preferential oxidation catalyst (17). The temperature profile is controlled by flowing a stream of water proximate to the preferential oxidation catalyst (17) so as the stream of water and the reformate stream passing ov...
We claim: 1. A reactor for the selective oxidation of carbon monoxide in a hydrogen rich reformate stream, comprising: a reactor body; an inlet for the addition of a reformate stream to the reactor body; at least one oxygen inlet for the addition of oxygen to the reformate stream; a first catalyst suitable for selective oxidation of carbon monoxide, located within the reactor body; a second catalyst suitable for selective oxidation of carbon monoxide, located within the reactor body; a first heat exchanger, having an inlet and an outlet, for removing he...
