Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Syngas is a mix of CO and H2, with possibly a few impurities. However, the ratio of CO to H2 depends on what was steam reformed. Unless you know the proportions by gas analysis (or at least stoichiometry from what was reformed) you can not calculate average molecular weight or density.

H2 = 73 %, CO = 6,2 %, CO2 = 2 %, N2 = 18 %

Average molecular weight

0.73*2 + 0.062*28 + 0.02*44 + 0.18*28 = 9.116 Da, so the molar mass is 9.116 g/mol.

At "normal" conditions, 101.325 kPa, 0 °C, a mole of ideal gas occupies 22.414 L.

184867 Nm³/h x 1 kmol/22.414 m³ x 9.116 kg/kmol = 75187 kg/h

Be careful here: Nm3 has nothing to do with m3 and L, since the unit is a molar amount and not a volume. Istead: find out how many kmol equals 1Nm3.

Ah.. I didn't see the phrase "Normal conditions" :) Yes, when the ideal gas law applies, then it's correct: nRT=Vp
