In this paper the industrial characteristics of the bifunctional Pt-Re reforming catalysts were studied with mathematical model. The results of the main control parameters influencing catalyst activity during operation cycle, such as the temperature, organochlorine compounds, and water amount were given. The calculation methodology development of the optimal water and chlorine supply into the reforming reactor by means of the physical and chemical nature research of this phenomenon in order to increase the industrial unit resource efficiency was proposed. The authors calculated and showed how to control the chlorine supply into the reactor for maintaining the optimum molar ratio of these components on the catalyst depending on the process temperature and varying flow rates. It was proved that the optimum organochlorine supply depends on the process temperature, system humidity, and recycled raw material volume. The methodology allows decreasing process financial costs by increasing installation work cycle.
