Chemistry - haber process

in the haber process the textbook states that the gases flow over the catalyst too quickly for the equilibrium to be reached?
I don't really understand that bc I can't rlly visualise it could someone please explain

It takes time for equilibrium to be attained. It is a chemical reaction. If the gases are not in contact with the catalyst for long enough then they miss out and flow away.
