The principles of the design and operation of a new variable high pressure, large diameter experimental ammonia oxidation test facility built by Johnson Matthey Metals Limited are described. The layout and arrangement of the plant are illustrated in some detail and examples of its use with platinum catalysts are given. The design of the plant is such that the operating conditions of any current, or likely future, commercial undertaking can be reproduced.
