Catalyst: KUT



The KUT catalyst is used in various hydrogenation processes of natural oils and animal fats in a wide range of temperature and pressure.



The catalytic material is pre-reduced nickel-alumina mixture containing highly dispersed active nickel. It is mixed with diatomaceous earth for better filterability and coated with a hardened vegetable fat as protective medium. The catalyst is delivered as pellets/droplets.
