Abstract

Russia occupies the third place in the world in terms of stocks of heavy oil raw materials. The development of deposits of light and medium oils makes it inevitable to involve heavy, as well as residual, petroleum raw materials in processing to meet the growing demand for petroleum products. Increase of the depth of oil processing possible in various ways, one of which is the use of new efficient catalysts, resistant to corrosion, poisoning and coking. Tungsten carbide, meeting these requirements, is a promising starting compound for the production of cracking catalysts for heavy oil feedstocks. The influence of tungsten carbide and its calcination temperature on the composition and yield of oil paraffin cracking products on the resulting catalysts was studied to investigate its catalytic activity, the optimum treatment temperature of tungsten carbide was determined. The high catalytic activity of a WC sample calcined at 420°C is shown. Using the physicochemical methods of investigation, the properties of tungsten carbide samples, as well as the composition and properties of the paraffin cracking products in the presence of the catalysts obtained, were studied.
