Design and Implementation of a Simulator for the Hydro Treating Reactor in RTO Development

B. Baloochy1, S.Shokri2, M.Ahmadi Marvast3

Abstract—A computer aided tool is an important part of a real time optimizer. In this paper, a three phase reactor model for describing the hydro desulfurization reactions in a trickle bed reactor was developed. A steady state plug-flow heterogeneous one-dimensional model was employed to implement the HDS simulator. The reactor model considers the main reactions present in the hydro desulfurization process. Simulations were performed for a pilot trickle bed reactor, and the results are discussed in terms of variations with axial position of partial pressure and concentrations in liquid phase. The simulation results show a good agreement with the experimental data.
