Presents detailed information and study cases on experiments on
hydrotreating catalysts for the petroleum industry Catalytic
hydrotreating (HDT) is a process used in the petroleum refining
industry for upgrading hydrocarbon streams--removing impurities,
eliminating metals, converting asphaltene molecules, and
hydrocracking heavy fractions. The major applications of HDT in
refinery operations include feed pretreatment for conversion
processes, post-hydrotreating distillates, and upgrading heavy
crude oils. Designing HDT processes and catalysts for successful
commercial application requires experimental studies based on
appropriate methodologies. Experimental Methods for Evaluation of
Hydrotreating Catalysts provides detailed descriptions of
experiments in different reaction scales for studying the
hydrotreating of various petroleum distillates. Emphasizing
step-by-step methodologies in each level of experimentation, this
comprehensive volume presents numerous examples of evaluation
methods, operating conditions, reactor and catalyst types, and
process configurations. In-depth chapters describe experimental
setup and procedure, analytical methods, calculations, testing and
characterization of catalyst and liquid products, and
interpretation of experiment data and results. The text describes
experimental procedure at different levels of
experimentation--glass reactor, batch reactor, continuous stirred
tank reactor, and multiple scales of tubular reactors--using model
compounds, middle distillates and heavy oil. This authoritative
volume: Introduces experimental setups used for conducting research
studies, such as type of operation, selection of reactor, and
analysis of products Features examples focused on the evaluation of
different reaction parameters and catalysts with a variety of
petroleum feedstocks Provides experimental data collected from
different reaction scales Includes experiments for determining mass
transfer limitations and deviation from ideality of flow pattern
Presents contributions from leading scientists and researchers in
the field of petroleum refining Experimental Methods for Evaluation
of Hydrotreating Catalysts is an indispensable reference for
researchers and professionals working in the area of catalytic
hydrotreating, as well as an ideal textbook for courses in fields
such as chemical engineering, petrochemical engineering, and
