Physical Chemistry and Control Technology for the Production of Polyalphaolefin Oils

The method of alpha-olefin oligomerization employing a heterogeneous catalyst for production of base oils used in motor and transmission oils manufacturing is considered, which has better performance and is eco-friendlier than methods employing homogeneous highly corrosive catalysts like BF3, or AlCl3. New methods and technology for online analysis of the reaction products and process flows have been developed, allowing automated process control.
