Abstract

Abstract The experimental oxidation of ethylene over supported Pt in an adiabatic fixed-bed reactor is mathematically modeled by a two phase cell model, including axial dispersion and axial bed thermal conduction. Correlations are developed relating the average rates of heat and mass transport to the physical properties of the reactor feed. Comparison of the transport phenomena measured under reaction conditions are made with literature values obtained in the absence of reaction.
