Effect of Catalyst Diffusion Coefficient on Ethylbenzene Dehydrogenation

Abstract:

Article Preview

The effective diffusion coefficients for a single catalyst pellet were determined by numerical integration of the Johnson-Stewart equation for bimodal and unimodal pore size distributions assuming a transitional diffusion regime. The effectiveness factors of a spherical catalyst pellet were determined at various pore size distribution probability density functions. Using effectiveness factors the production rates were determined. The results showed that the effectiveness factor and production rate are sensitive to catalyst pore size distribution and diffusion coefficient.
