A mathematical model of the catalytic reforming of gasolines in a reactor with continuous catalyst regeneration is proposed. The model takes into account the motion of the catalyst, changes in its activity along the bed height, and the dependence of its activity on the circulation ratio. The kinetic parameters of the Pt-Sn catalyst are determined under operational conditions by solving the inverse kinetic problem. The composition of the reformate component as calculated by the model coincides with the experimental data within the accuracy of chromatographic analysis. The proposed model is invariant to the composition of raw materials and can be used for predictive calculations.
