Calculation of Dimensions of a Three-Phase Reactor for Fisher—Tropsh Synthesis
The optimum loading on the iron-containing catalytic dispersion of the three-phase Fischer—Tropsch synthesis was 25 nL/hr when using an autoclave reactor. The linear velocity of the synthesis gas corresponded to 0.003 cm/sec. Under these conditions, the following synthesis parameters were achieved, including CO conversion of 80%, liquid hydrocarbon productivity 400 g kg Fe/hr. Based on the data obtained, when modeling a column reactor for three-phase Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, 1.6 m height and 0.045 m internal diameter were calculated.
