Kinetics of gas oil catalytic cracking
In the present work catalytic cracking of gas oils has been studied in a standard MAT reactor. The cracking product distribution was measured at four different temperatures. Based on the experimental results, a 4-lump kinetic model was applied. Kinetic constants were estimated using the sequential step optimization method. Simulation results have shown to be in a good agreement with experimental data. An isothermal pseudo steady-state model for fixed bed MAT reactor is proposed.
