In this article, we present the main results on the modeling of the industrial process of catalytic C9-C14 n-paraffin dehydrogenation, which is one of the technological stages in the production of linear alkyl benzenes used for the synthesis of synthetic detergents. The application of the developed mathematical model for evaluating the influence of the raw material composition on the target product yield is considered. The calculation results on the optimal technological modes for different dehydrogenation Pt catalysts and also on the prediction their lifetime are given.
