Experience in use of a computer system for assessing the optimum activity of different industrial catalysts in consideration of the process regime and feedstock composition is described. The system is based on software-implemented physicochemical and kinetic characteristics of conversion of hydrocarbons on Pt catalysts. The effect of the reforming conditions on the catalyst deactivation rate is investigated. Examples are given of its calculation for different units.
