A mathematical model of isopropyl benzene obtaining reactor process on chloroaluminum catalyst was developed. With use of HYSYS software a computer model of benzene with propylene alkylation technological scheme was created. Integration of computer models allowed carrying out calculations to determine technological modes of production, allowing to obtain a marketable product of higher quality. It was shown that increasing of isopropylbenzene concentration in commercial product to 99.9% by weight can be achieved by implementing of sequence separation in distillation columns due to redistribution of ethylbenzene and n-butyl benzene loads.
