Abstract

The present work reports a direct experimental comparison of the catalytic hydrodesulfurization of thiophene over Co-Mo/Al2O3 in fixed- and fluidized-bed reactors under the same conditions. An experimental pilot plant scale was constructed in the laboratories of chemical engineering department, Baghdad University; fixed-bed unit (2.54 cm diameter, and 60cm length) and fluidized-bed unit (diameter of 2.54 cm and 40 cm long with a separation zone of 30 cm long and 12.7 cm diameter). The affecting variables studied in the two systems were reaction temperature of (308 – 460) oC, Liquid hourly space velocity of (2 – 5) hr-1, and catalyst particle size of (0.075-0.5) mm. It was found in both operations that the conversion increases with increasing of reaction temperature, slightly decreases with increasing of liquid hourly space velocity and not affected by particle size. Also a kinetic analysis was performed for thiophene hydrodesulfurization reaction in fixed bed reactor and the results indicate that the reaction kinetics are not affected by pore and film diffusion limitations. The results of the comparison between the two reactors indicate that a low conversion was obtained in a fluidized bed than in fixed bed over the range of conditions studied. The lower conversion can be attributed to the gas that bypasses the bed in the form of bubbles or channels.

تم في هذا البحث دراسة تفاعل هدرجة الثيوفين لازالة الكبريت بوجود عامل مساعد صلب وهو الكوبولت – مولبيديوم المحمل على الالومينا.وذلك في نوعين من المفاعلات وهما المفاعل ذو الطبقة الثابتة والمفاعل ذو الطبقة المميعة. تم بناء منظومتين ريادية مكونة من مفاعل الطبقة الثابتة (ذو قطر 2,54 سم وطول 60 سم) ومفاعل الطبقة المميعة (ذو قطر 2,54 سم مطول 40 سم) الهدف من هذا الدراسة هو مقارنة اداء كل من هذين المفاعلين تحت نفس الضروف من درجة حرارة (308 -460) مه وسرعة حجمية (2-5) سا-1، وحجم جسيمة العامل المساعد (استخدمت ثلاث مديات لحجم جسيمة العامل المساعد:(0,075 – 0,15) ملم, (0,15 – 0,3) ملم, (0,3 – 0,5) ملم, بالاضافة للحجم الاصلي (1 (2 – 5) ملم).اظهرت النتائج في تجارب المفاعل ذو الطبقة الثابتة تأثر التحول كثيرا بتغيير درجة حرارة التفاعل حيث يزداد التحول بزيادة درجة الحرارة ويتأثر قليلا بتغيير السرعة الحجمية ولا يتأثر بتغيير حجم جسيمة العامل الساعد. كذلك ضهرت نتائج مشابهة في تجارب المفاعل ذو الطبقة المميعة. استنتج من هذه النتائج ان حركية تفاعل هدرجة الثيوفين بوجود العامل المساعد الكوبلت - موليبيديوم المحمل على الالومينا لا تتأثر بمقاومة الانتشار الداخلي لجسيمة العامل المساعد (داخل المسامات) وكذلك لا تتأثر بمقاومة الانتشار الخارجي للجسيمة (الانتشار الغشائي).بصورة عامة وبمقارنة الاداء بين المفاعلين, اظهرت النتائج حصول تحول اقل في المفاعل ذو الطبقة المميعة عنه في المفاعل ذو الطبقة الثابتة وذلك بسبب مرور قسم من الغاز المتفاعل الداخل خلال فقاعات او قنوات في طور الفقاعات ولا يمر على العامل المساعد في الطور المستحلب في المفاعل ذو الطبقة المميعة.

Abstract

Process modeling or computer simulation is one of the most important studies which gives the engineer a whole description about certain processes including all the mathematical relationships that are relating the process variables.Transport phenomena on fixed bed reactor was studied because of their importance and their effects on the catalyst performance in all chemical reactions.Simultaneous mass , heat and pressure drop were studied and all the process variables such as temperature, rate of reaction , pressure along length of the reactor were calculated and the data obtained from the mathematical package showed that with the increase the reaction temperature the processproduction , rate of reaction and pressure drop will increase.

Abstract

The removal of SO2 from simulated gas stream (SO2 + air) in a fixed bed reactor using Modified Activated Carbon (MAC) catalysts was investigated. All the experiments were conducted at atmospheric pressure, initial SO2 concentration of 2500 ppm and bed temperature of 90oC. MAC was prepared by loading a series of nickel and copper oxides 1, 3, 5, 7, and 10 wt% on AC. In some of the experimental runs, the original activated carbon was pretreated with two different concentrations of nitric acid 10 and 45 wt%. The results showed that the SO2 removal efficiency, breakthrough time (τ0.05) and sorption capacity increase with increasing metal oxides loadings up to a value of 7 wt% beyond which the desulfurization performance decreases. The pretreatment of the original AC with HNO3 enhanced the removal efficiency of SO2. The copper supported catalysts showed higher flue gas desulfurization activity as compared to the nickel supported catalysts
