Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper the feasibility of mixing device reconstruction in benzene with ethylene alkylation in the presence of liquid-phase catalyst was evaluated using Comsol Multiphysics software. The hydro-dynamic model of mixer chamber was developed and optimal options for reactants input are consi-dered. In defined optimal variant a uniform profile of reagents concentration distribution is obtained. The mixing intensification will allow to perform alkylation more effective and reduce catalytic complex flow rate.
