Results of thermodynamic analysis and mathematical simulation of the deactivation of a platinum dehydrogenation catalyst by coke-generating compounds are presented. An approach to increasing the catalyst on-stream time has been proposed, suggesting implementation of a procedure for calculating the optimal flow rate of water fed to the reactor to maintain the conditions of thermodynamic equilibrium of the coke formation reaction and oxidation of intermediate condensation products with water.
