  • 7. Summary SummaryIn the presented work hydroisomerization of Iraqi light naphtha (produced in Al-Dura Refinery) has been investigated to produce isomers. Three types of catalystswere prepared Pt/HY, Pt/BaY, and Pt/Al 2 O 3 with 0.5wt% by impregnation withhexachloroplatinic acid.The catalytic unit was constructed from stainless steel and designed to carry outthe hydroisomerization process. The fixed bed reactor dimensions were O.D 3cm,I.D 2cm, and 21cm high. All experiments were made at atmospheric pressure andreaction temperature of 230, 250, 270, 290, and 310°C, WHSV 1.5, 3, and 4.5h-1,under constant H 2 /HC mole ratio of 4.The results show that the conversion of the main light naphtha components (n-pentane, n-hexane, 2-methylpentane, and 3-methylpentane) increases with increasein reaction temperature and decreases with increase in weight hour space velocity.Also, it was noted that the selectivity to isomers increase with Pt/HY, Pt/BaYcatalysts at low temperature and decrease at high temperature, while with Pt/Al 2 O 3 R R R Rcatalyst the aromatics products increase with increase in reaction temperature.Pt/HY catalyst gives higher selective isomerization than Pt/BaY catalyst which is(95%) and (89%) respectively at 270°C, and (1.5 hr-1). While, Pt/Al 2 O 3 catalyst P P R R R Rgives 64.7% as total conversion where 18% as aromatic products. The totalconversion for Pt/HY and Pt/BaY were about 50%. The following sequence forisomerization selectivity was concluded as: Pt/HY > Pt/BaY > Pt/Al 2 O 3R R R R II
  • 8. SummaryA kinetic model was derived based on the present work results. Then, the kineticparameters such as K 1 , K 2 , K o , and activation energy (E) are calculated dependingon the present experimental work results.The results of model show that the values of apparent activation energyvary within a range of 22 and 23 kJ/mol for n-pentane, 20 to 24 kJ/mol forn-hexane, and 15 to 17 kJ/mol for 3mp isomerization reactions. On theother hand, the model pointed the reactivity order behaves as follows. 3-methylpentane > n-hexane > n-pentaneDerive an equations which are calculating the reaction rate constants (k 1 and k 2 )parameters as follows: k1= [(1+ Є) Ln – Єx] C iso = C A° [1- exp (- k 1 t) - [exp(-k 1 t) – exp(-k 2 t)] R R R R III

  • 16. Chapter One Introduction Chapter One Introduction1.1 IntroductionThe interest in improving the efficiency of the automotive motorsencourages the formulation of new catalysts and the development ofprocesses for gasoline.Due to the environmental restrictions a reduction in allowable of leadcompounds levels and toxic compounds such as aromatics, in particularbenzene, olefin, sulfur-containing components in automobile gasolinewere imposed, as a result it forced refineries to implement new octaneenhancement projects.Considering that branched-chain alkanes posses the greatest octanenumbers, the normal alkanes hydroisomerization is one of the mosteffective project decisions in a direction favoring the least initialinvestment approach as opposed to the best overall payout. The use ofgasoline containing higher content of these compounds is one alternativeto obtain clean fuel with high antiknock characteristics.In order to increase the gasoline octane number, major petroleumrefineries used different units such as catalytic reforming, cracking,alkylation, oligomerization, polymerization and isomerization(hydroisomerization) [Benadda et al., 2003, Nattaporn and James, 2007].It is important to mention here that the petroleum industry is looking foreconomical solutions to meet new regulatory specifications for producingenvironmentally clean fuels. Most of the implemented legislations require 1
  • 17. Chapter One Introductiona reduction and a limitation on the concentration of benzene in thegasoline pool. This has increased the demand for high performance C 5and C 6 naphtha isomerization technology because of its ability to reducethe benzene concentration in the gasoline pool while maintaining orincreasing the pool octane.Light paraffin isomerization has been used historically to offset octaneloss from lead-phase out and to provide a cost-effective solution tomanage benzene in motor fuels. In the current refining environment,isomerate octane can be used to offset octane loss from MTBE phase-out[Anderson et al., 2004]. Therefore, the hydroisomerization of lightnaphtha (C 5 -C 6 fractions) is an industrially important process and is usedin the production of high octane gasoline blend stocks. The processinvolves the transformation (with minimal cracking) of the low octanenormal (and less branched) paraffin components into the high octaneisomers with greater branching of the carbon chain [Ravishankar andSivasanker, 1996, Andreas, 2003, Rachid et al., 2006, María et al., 2008].In Iraq there is no clear strategies to reduce the demand for leadedgasoline and aromatics (Benzene). Therefore, the hydroisomerizationunits are regarded a good solution and a good start point strategy indirection of clean fuels.The metal– acid bifunctional catalysts, such as alumina or zeolitesupported Pt catalysts, are used in hydroisomerization of light paraffins(n-pentane and n-hexane). It shows high efficiency in the isomerization ofalkanes. The isomerization of pentane and hexane is successfully carriedout using noble metals such as Pt- or Pd- supported on Al 2 O 3 , mordenite,beta zeolite, and silicon catalyst. However, difficulties are encounteredwith hydrocarbons larger than heptane because the cracking reaction 2
  • 18. Chapter One Introductionbecomes more significant over these isomerization catalysts as the chainlength increases. So, some modification and pretreatment processes arerequired to increase the catalyst activity, selectivity and life time [Takeshiet al., 2003, Ping et al., 2009].The literature mentions many studies which were focused to investigatethe hydroisomerization of n-paraffins [Liu et al., 1996, Chica and Corma,1999, Yunqi et al., 2004, Salwa et al., 2007]. Few investigations haveused light naphtha as a feedstock for the process. On the other hand, manyauthors made a kinetic study on the hydroisomerization unit for n-hexaneand n-heptane [Runstraat et al., 1997, Annemieke et al., 1997, Franciscus,2002, Toshio, 2004, Matthew, 2008]. But only few studies dealling withthe hydroisomerization of light naphtha were published [Holló et al.,2002, Carsten, 2006].1.2 Aims of the Work The main aims of the present work are: 1- Preparation of modified zeolites (BaY and HY) by ion exchange method. 2- Preparation of Pt/ BaY and Pt/HY by impregnation method.3- Study the hydroisomerization of Iraqi light naphtha over bifunctional zeolite catalysts and test of the prepared catalysts activity and selectivity under different operating conditions of temperature, and WHSV.4- To make a mathematical model to describe the reaction kinetics of the hydroisomerization process.5- To estimate kinetics parameters under different operating conditions depending on the results of present experimental work. 3
  • 19. Chapter Two Literature Survey Chapter Two Literature Survey2.1 Scope UThe hydroisomerization of light paraffins is an important industrial process toobtain branched alkanes which are used as octane boosters in gasoline. Thus,isoparaffins are considered an alternative to the use of oxygenate and aromaticcompounds, whose maximum contents are subjected to strict regulations inorder to protect the environment [Holló et al., 2002, Satoshi, 2003, Rafael et al.,2005].Hydroisomerization reactions are generally carried out over bifunctionalcatalysts, often containing platinum. The metal component aids in increasingthe rate of isomerization, besides lowering catalyst deactivation.The interest in the isomerization process is heightened with the phase out oftetraethyl lead in 1970s, following the phase out of leaded gasoline due to theintroduction of clean air act amendments of 1990 in the USA and similarlegislation in other countries. Aromatics and olefin react with NO X emission to R Rform ozone, thus contributing to smog formation [Maloncy et al., 2005].Therefore, in many plants refineries have to minimize benzene yield. In Europe,the aromatics content is limited since 2005 to content 35 vol% instead of 42vol% and benzene to approximately zero level [Liu et al., 1996, Goodarz et al.,2008].There are various approaches in petroleum refineries to obtain high octanenumber components, which include processes of cracking, reforming and 4
  • 20. Chapter Two Literature Surveyisomerization. Catalytic cracking is the process for converting heavy oils intomore valuable gasoline and lighter products. The cracking process producescarbon (coke) which remains on the catalyst particle and rapidly lowers itsactivity. On the other hand, the catalytic naphtha reforming is the chemicalprocess which converts low octane compound in heavy naphtha to high-octanegasoline components, without changing carbon numbers in the molecule. Thisis achieved mainly by conversion of straight chain naphtha to iso-paraffins andaromatics over a solid catalyst. The isomerisation (hydroisomerization) is thechemical process which converts low octane compound in light naphtha to highoctane number components via rearrangement of the molecular structure of ahydrocarbon without gain or loss of any of its components. [Ulla, 2003,Northrop et al., 2007 ].The most widely applied alkane isomerization catalysts are chlorinated aluminasupported platinum and zeolite supported Pt or Pd. Also there are many ofdifferent catalysts in which the selectivity isomerization increases and thecracking decreases [Rachid et al., 2006].A comprehensive literature review is shown in this chapter to include: gasolinespecification, hydroisomerization process catalysts and characterization. 2.2 Gasoline Fuel and Its Specefications U UGasoline is one of petroleum fuels that consists of 5 carbons to 11 carbons inthe hydrocarbon compounds. Actually, gasoline contains up to 500hydrocarbons, either saturated or unsaturated hydrocarbons and othercompounds. Saturated hydrocarbon known as paraffin or alkane forms themajor component of low octane number gasoline. Unsaturated hydrocarbonincludes olefins or alkenes, isoparaffins or alkyl alkane, arenes or aromatics. 5
  • 21. Chapter Two Literature SurveyOther compounds consist of alcohols and ethers [Lovasic et al., 1990, Carey,1992].Although there are several important properties of gasoline, the three that havethe greatest effects on engine performance are the Reid vapor pressure, boilingrange, and antiknock characteristics.The Reid vapor pressure (RVP) and boiling range of gasoline govern ease ofstarting, engine warm-up, rate of acceleration, loss by crankcase dilution,mileage economy, and tendency toward vapor lock. Engine warm-up time isaffected by the percent distilled at 158°F (70°C) and the 90% ASTM distillationtemperature. Warm-up is expressed in terms of the distance covered to developfull power without excessive use of the choke. Crankcase dilution is controlledby the 90% ASTM distillation temperature and is also a function of outsidetemperature [Takao, 2003].The octane number of the gasoline depends on the number of branch carbonatoms and the length of carbon atom chain. Octane number is a ratio of n-heptane to iso-octane part by volume and commercially is between 60:40 and40:60. n-heptane has octane number of zero while iso-octane has octane numberof 100. Higher octane rating is obtained by decreasing normal alkanes whileincreasing iso-alkanes and cyclic hydrocarbons. Although unsaturatedhydrocarbons have desirable octane rating, for example acetylene, benzene andtoluene, they are toxic and their content in the gasoline should be reduced.The octane number represents the ability of gasoline to resist knocking duringcombustion of the air-gasoline mixture in the engine cylinder. Gasoline musthave a number of the other properties in order to function properly and to avoiddamage to the environment [Antos et al., 1995, Tore et al., 2007]. 6
  • 22. Chapter Two Literature SurveyOctane ratings in gasoline are conventionally boosted by addition of aromaticand oxygenated compounds. However, as a result of increasingly stringentenvironmental legislation, the content of these compounds in gasoline is beingrestricted and thus industry has been forced to investigate alternative processesto reach the required octane levels [Rafael et al., 2008].There are several types of octane numbers for spark ignition engines with thetwo determined by laboratory tests considered most common: those determinedby the ‘‘motor method’’ (MON) and those determined by the ‘‘researchmethod’’ (RON). Both methods use the same basic type of test engine butoperate under different conditions. The RON (ASTM D-908) represents theperformance during city driving when acceleration is relatively frequent, andthe MON (ASTM D-357) is a guide to engine performance on the highway orunder heavy load conditions.The difference between the research and motor octane is an indicator of thesensitivity of the performance of the fuel to the two types of driving conditionsand is known as the ‘‘sensitivity’’ of the fuel. On the other hand, the meanaverage of RON and MON is named rating. [Chica et al., 2001, Goodarz et al.,2008]. An overview of octane numbers of different hydrocarbons, given inTable (2.1).In the oil industry C 5 and C 6 paraffins are typically used in hydroisomerization R R R Runits to obtain high octane number components. Paraffins larger thanC 6 , such R Ras heptane are usually present in catalytic reforming feed streams and convertedinto aromatic compounds [Maloncy et al., 2005] . 7

  • 24. Chapter Two Literature Survey2.3 Hydroisomerization Process U UOne of the important targets in the petroleum industry is the production ofbranched alkanes by skeletal isomerisation of n-alkanes using solid acidcatalysts. Environmental concerns are now promoting clean gasoline with highresearch octane number (RON) and low content of aromatics such as benzene.Isomerization of light straight run naphtha has the potential to satisfy theserequirements.The isomerisation process is catalytic reactions that involve rearrangement ofthe molecular structure of a hydrocarbon without gain or loss of any of itscomponents. This process uses light naphtha (C 5 -C 6 fractions) in the production R R R Rof high octane gasoline blend stocks. The process involves the transformation(with minimal cracking) of low octane normal (and less branched) paraffincomponents into high octane isomers with greater branching of the carbonchain. These types of processes are usually accomplished by bifunctionalcatalysts that have both metallic and acidic function [Ravishankar andSivasanker, 1996, Maha, 2007].The refineries of petroleum in the world include hydroisomerization unit.Figure (2.1) shows the position of hydroisomerization unit in a petroleumrefinery. It is important to mention here that many petroleum companiesdesigned hydroisomerization processes to produce high octane gasoline. 9

  • 28. Chapter Two Literature SurveyThe dual-functional catalysts used in these processes are platinum on chlorided-alumina support. These types of catalysts offer the highest activity to takeadvantage of higher thermodynamic equilibrium iso- to normal ratiosachievable at lower temperatures. In order to improve the performance of theseprocesses.If the normal pentane in the reactor product is separated and recycled, theproduct RON can be increased by about 3 numbers (83 to 86 RON) . If bothnormal pentane and normal hexane are recycled the product clear RON can beimproved to about 87 to 90. Separation of the normals from the isomers can beaccomplished by fractionation or by vapor phase adsorption of the normals on amolecular sieve bed. The adsorption process is well developed in several largeunits.On the other hand, it is important to mention here that the isomerization processis called hydroisomerization because its reaction requires H 2 gas to prevent R Rdeactivation of catalysts. In hydroisomerization process, some hydrocrackingoccurs during the reactions resulting in a loss of gasoline and the production oflight gas. The amount of gas formed varies with the catalyst type and age and issometimes a significant economic factor. The light gas produced is typically inthe range of 1.0 to 4.0 wt% of the hydrocarbon feed to the reactor. The maincomposition of these gases is methane, ethane and propane [Gary, 2001, Shi etal., 2008].Two types of hydroisomerization processes of alkanes were developed, havingdifferent objectives and technologies [Satoshi, 2003]:1. The isomerization of lower n-alkanes (C 5 -C 7 ) for the production of high- R R R R octane components and of n-C 4 to i-C 4 as feed for the production of R R R R alkylate. 13
  • 29. Chapter Two Literature Survey2. The isomerization of the n-alkanes contained in paraffinic oils in order to produce a significant decrease in the freezing temperature and thus eliminate the need for dewaxing.2.3.1 Catalysts of Hydroisomerization ProcessThe first hydro- isomerization unit was introduced in 1953 by UOP, followed in1965 by the first BP unit, while in 1970 the first Shell Co. hydro-isomerization(HYSOMER) unit was started up. All these processes take place in the gasphase on a fixed bed catalyst containing platinum on a solid carrier. In the late1950s and early 1960s, chlorinated platinum loaded alumina was used as acatalyst. The major advantage of this catalyst was its low temperature activity(T< 200°C) due to its high acidity. However the catalysts were sensitivetowards water and oxygenates and in addition had corrosive properties.Furthermore, chlorine addition during the reaction is necessary to guaranteecatalyst stability [Gary, 2001, Maciej et al., 2002, Yunqi et al., 2004].In the Hysomer process zeolite based catalysts were used which had the majoradvantage of resistance to feed impurities. Industrially applied zeolites usedtoday are Pt-containing, modified synthetic (large-port) mordernite e.g. HS10 ofUOP, or HYSOPAR from Süd- Chemie. As higher hydrogen to hydrocarbonratios are needed recycle compressors and separators are required for thistechnology [Jens, 1982, Corma et al., 1995, Christian, 2005].The isomerization of hydrocarbons < C 6 is currently carried out very R Rsuccessfully using bifunctional supported platinum catalysts. However,difficulties are encountered with hydrocarbons larger than hexane since thecracking reactions become more significant over platinum catalysts as the chainlength increases [Cuong et al., 1995]. Catalysts used in state of the art 14
  • 30. Chapter Two Literature Surveyisomerization-cracking reactors are bifunctional. They have a metal functionproviding de-hydrogenation and hydrogen activation properties that are usuallysupplied by group VIII noble metals like Pt, Pd, Ni or Co. The acid function isthe support itself and some examples include acid zeolites, chlorided aluminaand amorphous silica alumina. Noble metals have a positive effect on theactivity and stability of the catalyst. However they have a low resistance topoisoning by sulfur and nitrogen compounds present in the processed cuts[Busto et al., 2008].In order to prepare a suitable catalyst for hydroconversion of alkanes, goodbalance between the metal and acid functions must be obtained. Rapidmolecular transfer between the metal and acid sites is necessary for selectiveconversion of alkanes into desirable products [Vagif et al., 2003].Two of the attractive features of zeolite are that the catalysts are tolerant ofcontaminants and that they are regenerable. The chlorinated alumina catalystsare very sensitive to contaminants such as water, carbon oxides, oxygenates,and sulfur. Thus, feeds and hydrogen must be hydrotreated and dried to removewater and sulfur. Furthermore, the chlorinated alumina catalysts require theaddition of organic chloride to the feed in order to maintain their activities. Thiscauses contamination in the waste gas of hydrogen chloride, a scrubber isneeded to remove such contamination [Satoshi, 2003].The UOP BenSat process uses a commercially proven noble metal catalyst,which has been used for many years for the production of petrochemical-gradecyclohexane. The catalyst is selective and has no measurable side reactions.Because no cracking occurs, no appreciable coke forms on the catalyst toreduce activity. Sulfur contamination in the feed reduces catalyst activity, butthe effect is not permanent. Catalyst activity recovers when the sulfur isremoved from the system [Meyers, 2004]. 15

It is insoluble in water andorganic liquids and very slightly soluble in strong acids and alkalies. Aluminaoccurs in two crystalline forms. Alpha alumina is composed of colorlesshexagonal crystals with the properties given above; gamma alumina iscomposed of minute colorless cubic crystals with sp. gr. of about 3.6 that aretransformed to the alpha form at high temperatures.

Chapter Two Literature SurveyTypical alumina characteristics include: Good strength and stiffness Good hardness and wear resistance Good corrosion resistance Good thermal stability Excellent dielectric properties (from DC to GHz frequencies) Low dielectric constant Low loss tangent2.3.1.2 ZeoliteZeolites are microporous crystalline solids with well-defined structures.Generally they contain silicon, aluminium and oxygen in their framework andcations, water and/or other molecules wthin their pores. Zeolites occur naturallyas minerals or synthetic, Figure (2.6) shows the shape of different types ofzeolites [Matthew, 2008].Because of their unique porous properties, zeolites are used in a variety ofapplications with a global market of several milliion tonnes per annum. In thewestern world, major uses are in petrochemical cracking, ion-exchange (watersoftening and purification), and in the separation and removal of gases andsolvents. Other applications are in agriculture, animal husbandry andconstruction. They are often also referred to as molecular sieves [Danny, 2002].Zeolites have the ability to act as catalysts for chemical reactions which takeplace within the internal cavities. An important class of reactions is thatcatalysed by hydrogen-exchanged zeolites, whose framework-bound protonsgive rise to very high acidity. This is exploited in many organic reactions,including crude oil cracking, isomerisation and fuel synthesis [Jirong, 1990]. 17

Chapter Two Literature Survey Figure (2.6) Structures and dimensions of different types of zeolite [Tirena, 2005].Underpinning all these types of reaction is the unique microporous nature ofzeolites, where the shape and size of a particular pore system exert a stericinfluence on the reaction, controlling the access of reactants and products. Thuszeolites are often said to act as shape-selective catalysts. Increasingly, attentionhas focused on fine-tuning the properties of zeolite catalysts in order to carryout very specific syntheses of high-value chemicals e.g. pharmaceuticals andcosmetics [Eisuke et al., 2005].The following properties make zeolites attractive as catalysts, sorbents,and ion-exchangers [Jirong, 1990, Liu et al., 1996, Danny, 2002]. 18

The net negative charge is then balanced by cations (e.g. K+ or P PNH 4 +).

The secondary building block of this zeolite is asodalite cage, which consists of 24 tetrahedra in the geometrical form ofa cubo-octahedron. The sodalite cages are linked to each other via ahexagonal prism. 19
  • 35. Chapter Two Literature Survey2.4 Previous Work UNumerous researchers which have dealt with hydroisomerization usingdifferent types of catalysts as follows:Diaz et al., [1983] studied the isomerization and hydrogenolysis of hexanes onan alumina-supported Pt-Ru catalyst. On ruthenium/ alumina catalysts, noisomer products were detected in C6 R R hydrocarbon reactions.Methylcyclopentane hydrogenolysis was selective as confirmed by the high 3-methylpentane/n-hexane ratios. Isomerization reactions on Pt(9.6 at.%)-Ru (0.4at.%)/Al 2 O 3 were studied between 220 and 300°C. Skeletal rearrangements R R R Rproceeded from 220°C where Pt is inactive for this type of reactions, Very lowapparent activation energies in isomerization reactions of Cs-labeledhydrocarbons were found for selective and nonselective cyclic mechanisms: 2-methylpentane 3- methylpentane and 2-methylpentane n-hexane, respectively. The results were explained using a bimolecular kineticmodel which can take into account the phenomenon as an increase either inhydrocarbon coverage or in hydrocarbon adsorption strength on the catalystsurface.Raouf, [1994] investigated hydroconversion (isomerization, cracking andcyclization of n-heptane) using three types of a crystalline zeolites as supports.It was noted platinum supported zeolite catalyst vary in their activity andselectivity towards n-heptane hydroconversion. Support types were found tobehave differently when impregnated with hexachloroplatinic acid. ApplyingH 2 PtCl 6 on acidic decationized and cationic zeolite type Y produce most active R R R Rcatalyst toward isomerization at lower temperature and for hydrocrackingathigher temperature. On the other hand, applying H 2 PtCl 6 on zeolite type X R R R Rproduce an active catalyst. The isomerizing activity is, however, lower than Ytype with moderate hydroisomerization and hydrocracking selectivity. While 20
  • 36. Chapter Two Literature Surveyfor A type produces an active catalyst with low isomerizayion activity and ahigher cracking ability. catalytic activity of all types of Pt-zeolite catalystsstrongly depends on the Si/Al ratio. The order of the catalytic activity for thecatalysts is type Y > type X > Y type A.Ravishankar and Sivasanker [1996] studied the hydroisomerization of n-hexanewas carried out at atmospheric pressure in the temperature range 473-573 Kover Pt-MCM-22. The influence of Pt content, the SiO 2 /A1 2 O 3 ratio of R R R R R Rthezeolite and the reaction parameters on the isomerization efficiency of thecatalyst was investigated. The optimum Pt content for the reaction was found tobe around 0.5 wt.%. At a constant Pt content of 0.5 wt.%, increasing the A1content of the zeolite increased the catalytic activities andisomerization/cracking ratios. The studies suggest that the reaction proceeds bya bifunctional mechanism. Preliminary activity comparisons between Pt-H-MCM-22, Pt-H-β and Pt-Hmordenite are reported.Chica and Corma, [1999] tested The hydroisomerization of n-heptane todibranched and tribranched products for producing high octane gasoline hasbeen studied using unidirectional 12 Membered Ring (MR) zeolites withdifferent pore diameters, and zeolites with other pore topologies including onewith connected 12×10MRpores and two tridirectional 12 MR zeolites. Besidesthe pore topology, the crystallite size of the zeolite was seen to be of paramountimportance for improving activity and selectivity. In a second part of the work,a Light Straight Run naphtha including n-pentane and n-hexane and anotherfeed containing n-pentane, n-hexane, and n-heptane have been successfullyisomerized using a nanocrystalline Beta (BEA) zeolite. This can be a favorablealternative to the commercial zeolite catalyst based on mordenite (MOR),especially when n-heptane is present in the feed. They found, that with 21
  • 37. Chapter Two Literature Surveyincreasing of reaction temperature within the range 240-380ºC, the conversion P Pof n-parafins increased. Also, the results clearly show that regardless of thezeolite used the reactivity follows the order n-heptane> n-hexane> n-pentane.Mordenite cracks n-heptane products very quickly, giving low selectivities tobranched products. While a larger unidirectional pore zeolite (SSZ-24) givesbetter results than H-mordenite, the 12 MR tridirectional zeolites are the bestcatalysts for the branching isomerization of n-heptane, owing to the fasterdiffusion rates of reactants and products through the micropores. The zeolitecrystal size has been found to be of paramount importance, because the catalyticactivity and selectivity of a nanocrystalline Beta zeolite was better than that ofBeta zeolites with larger crystallites.Shuguang et al., [2000] investigated the hydroisomerization of normalhexadecane using three Pt/WO 3 /ZrO 2 catalysts prepared by different methods.

Further increments in platinum concentration do not produceimportant modifications in catalytic activity or hydrogen availability.Srikant and Panagiotis, [2003] used Pt/H-ZSM-12 as a catalyst for thehydroisomerization of C 5 –C 7 n-alkanes and simultaneous saturation of benzene. R R R RThe performance of a Pt/H-ZSM-12 catalyst was compared with a Pt/H-betaand a Pt/H-mordenite catalysts having a similar Si/Al ratio.

However, the resultsshowed that the conversion levels over the Pt/H-ZSM-12 and Pt/H-Mor catalystare lower compared to the levels obtained in the absence of sulfur at the sametemperature.Abbass [2004], studied the transformation of n-hexane over0.5wt%Pt/HY-Zeolite at 250-325˚C and WHSV=1.6hr-1.

Typically, the catalytically active componentsare metals and/or metal-containing compounds. The support materials aregenerally high surface area materials with specific pore volumes and 27
  • 43. Chapter Two Literature Surveydistribution [Lovasic et al., 1990, Raouf 1994, Novaro et al., 2000, Ramze,2008].Various methods for depositing catalytically active components on catalystsupports are known, the catalyst support may be impregnated with an aqueoussolution of the catalytically active components. The impregnated support maythen be dried and calcined. The catalytically active component may also bedeposited onto the catalyst support by precipitation, a catalyst support is firstimpregnated in an aqueous solution of a noble metal. The metal is thenprecipitated on to the support by contacting the impregnated support with anaqueous solution of an alkali metal salt [Iker, 2004].Many factors influence catalysts preparation, such as solution concentration,contact time, washing, temperature and method of reduction. Figure (2.7)illustrates the general procedure for catalysts preparation [Shuguang et al.,2000, Sergio et al., 2005].2.5.1 ImpregnationThe manner in which a metal is introduced to a support will influence itsdispersion as well as the nature of the metal-support interaction. Supportedcatalysts with low concentration of metal are generally prepared byimpregnation (or in some cases by ion exchanging). The choice of precursor saltis made both for its solubility in water, and preferred solvent, and for its abilityto disperse throughout the support. Impregnation of pore supported catalyst isachieved by filling the pores of support with solution of active species of metalsalt from which solvent is evaporated. The concentration of the metal contentcan be increased by successive impregnation with intermediate precipitationand thermal activation to isolubilize the supported species [Jensen et al., 1997,Shuguang et al., 2000]. 28
  • 44. Chapter Two Literature Survey Figure (2.7): Typical arrangement of the catalysts preparation [Anderson, 1975]Impregnation with interaction occurs when the solute to be depositedestablishes a bond with the surface of the support at the time of wetting. Suchinteraction results in a near-atomic dispersion of the active species precursor.The interaction can be an ion exchange, an adsorption, or a chemical reactionsince ion exchanges occur much more frequently than the others [Lepage,1987]. 29
  • 45. Chapter Two Literature Survey2.5.2 CalcinationCalcination means any thermal treatment carried out with the purpose ofdecomposing precursor compounds (usually with the evolution of gaseousproduct) and / or allowing solid-state reactions to occur among different catalystcomponents and / or making the catalyst sinter. The calcination temperature isusually not lower than that of operation at the industrial plant [Thomas, 2004].The type of calcination is assumed to be calcination in air, typically at atemperature higher than the anticipated temperatures of the catalytic reactionand catalyst regeneration.The objectives of calcination are to obtain:1- A well determined structure for the active agents or supports.2- The parallel adjustment of the texture with respect to the surface and pore volume.3- A good mechanical resistance if it does not already existAmong the various types of chemical or physico-chemical transformations thatoccur during calcination, the following are the most important:A- The creation of a generally macroporous texture through decomposition and volatilization of substances previously added to the solid at the moment of its shaping.B- Modifications of texture through sintering: small crystals or particles will turn into bigger ones.C- Modifications of structure through sintering.2.5.3 ReductionReduction process is the final step in activation of supported metal catalyst,which consists of the transformation of the metal precursor compound or itsoxide into the metallic state (metal atoms, small metal clusters). 30
  • 46. Chapter Two Literature SurveyReduction involves reaction where the initiation process proceeds at distinctsites (potential centers) on the surface of solid, followed by propagation of thereaction zone from such a center through the solid, until complete conversion isachieved upon contact of a metal oxide with hydrogen, oxygen ions are created.The reaction process of oxides and halides can be represented by the followingequations [Vanden and Rijnten, 1979, Anderson et al., 1984]MO (s) + H 2 R R R M (s) + H 2 O (g) R R R R R R2MX (s) +H 2(g) R R R 2M (s) +2HX (g) R R R RThere are many factors affecting the reduction step, calcination of the depositedprecursor might cause several transformation and solid state reaction. Watervapor inhibits reduction by blocking nucleus forming sites.2.6 Catalysts Characterization U UCharacterization of the catalyst is a predominate step in every catalyst study andat every stage of the catalyst development. Critical parameters are measured notonly to check the effectiveness of each operation but also to providespecification for future products. Characterization might be studied orcontrolled in terms of support properties, metal dispersion and location andsurface morphology [Tirena, 2005].In general, the quality of any catalyst is determined by a number of factors,such as activity, selectivity for certain product, and stability. These parametersare themselves functions of pretreatment conditions of the catalyst preparationand reaction conditions. The interpretation of catalytic performance through themechanism of catalytic action depends on the study of the intrinsic chemicaland physical characteristics of the solid and a recognition of correlations 31

Table (2.4) offer presents the general physcochemical properties ofcatalysts and methods of measuring them.2.6.1 X-ray Diffraction (XRD)X-ray diffraction is a technique to identify the crystallinity of catalysts. Thistechnique is based on the knowledge that each compound in catalyst has adifferent diffraction pattern. The crystallinity can be determined by comparingthe intensity of a number of particular peaks to the intensity of the same peaksobtained by standard samples [Marı´a et al., 1997, Benitez et al., 2006].The diffraction pattern is plotted based on the intensity of the diffracted beams.These beams represent a map of reciprocal lattice parameter, known as Millerindex (hkl) as a function of 2θ, which satisfies Bragg equation:nλ = 2d sin θ -------------------------(2.1)where n is an integer number, λ is the wavelength of the beam d is interplanarspacing and θ is a diffraction angle. Equation (2.1) is obtained from Braggdiffraction as shown in Figure (2.8).2.6.2 Surface AreaIn practice, the surface area is calculated from the Brunauer-Emmett-Teller(BET) equation based on the physical adsorption of an inert gas at constanttemperature, usually nitrogen at the temperature of liquid nitrogen. Theprinciple of measurement consists in determining the point when a mono-molecular layer of gas covers the surface of the catalyst [Antonio et al., 2006]. 32

Chapter Four Kinetic Analysis Chapter Four Kinetic Analysis4.1 IntroductionThe main aim of the present study is to analyze the kinetics of hydroisomerizationprocess by assessing the effect of reaction time and reaction temperature on theperformance of the catalysts. The process feed involves light naphtha whichcontains many reactions. Therefore, the hydroisomerization reaction has threestages as follows: [Sergio et al., 2003, Antonio et al., 2006, Pitz et al., 2007,Marios et al., 2009]:1- Adsorption of n- paraffin molecule on dehydrogenation- hydrogenation site followed by dehydrogenation to n- olefins.2- Desorption of n- olefin from the dehydrogenation sites and diffusion to a skeletal rearranged site, which converts n- olefin into iso- olefin.3- Hydrogenation of iso- olefin into iso- paraffin molecule.In general, the hydroisomerization of n- paraffin can occur through the bifunctionalscheme shown below:n-Paraffin n-Olefin i- Olefin i- Parffin 46
  • 62. Chapter Four Kinetic AnalysisThe hydroisomerization process of light naphtha is regarded as one of thecomplex chemical reactions network, where such types of reactions take on ametal and acid sites of catalysts [Antonio et al., 2006, Eric et al., 2007 ].Therefore, the mathematical modeling of the hydroisomerization process is avery important tool in petroleum refining industries. It translates experimentaldata into parameters used as the basis of commercial reactor process optimaization.In the hydroisomerization of alkanes it is supposed that the alkane isdehydrogenated to an alkene on the metal site. The alkene is then protonated on theacid site to a carbenium ion, which is subsequently isomerized to a branchedcarbenium ion. The branched carbenium ion gives the proton back to the acid site,the resulting branched alkene is hydrogenated on the metallic site. The branchedalkane is formed, and can be desorbed from the catalyst surface. The reactionmechanism scheme is shown in Figure (4.1) [Franciscus, 2002, Maha, 2007,Matthew, 2008].Figure (4.1) The general reactions mechanism for isomerization of n-alkane [Franciscus, 2002]. 47
  • 63. Chapter Four Kinetic Analysis4.2 Model DevelopmentIn developing the model of the catalytic hydroisomerization kinetic the followingassumptions are taken into account:1. The system is isothermal and in steady state operation with first order reactions.2. The reaction is carried out in the gas phase with constant physical properties and without pressure drop.3. The temperature and concentration gradients in the radial direction can be neglected.The objective of kinetic study is to construct from the experimental results of theprocess, a mathematical formulation that can be used to predict the kineticparameters of the hydroisomerization process. Therefore, the main aim of thepresent work is to estimate the reaction parameters (reaction rate constant,activation energy and pre-exponential factor) depending on the experimental workresults under real isomerization conditions.In present work, it is suggested kinetic model for the reactions ofhydroisomerizayion for light naphtha (n-paraffin) can be considered by thefollowing scheme depending on the present model assumptions which can beformulated to the following equations: Figure (4.1) The suggested reactions of light naphtha isomerization of the present work. 48

Chapter Five Results & Discussion5.2 Effect of Operating ConditionsThe hydroisomerization process is affected by different parameters such as catalysttype, WHSV, and reaction temperature.5.2.1 Effect of Temperature5.2.1.1 Effect of Temperature on Conversion of Light NaphthaFigures (5.5) to (5.13) and Appendix C show the effect of temperarure onconversion of light naphtha For the catalysts examined (Pt/BaY, Pt/HY,and Pt/Al 2 O 3 ). It can be seen that (n-pentane, n-hexane, 2MP, 3MP) arethe most common. From the general behavior of these figures, it was notedthat with increasing of reaction temperature within the range 230-310ºC,the conversion of light naphtha increased, that is due to the increasing ofsites that can be contribute in the reaction when the temperature increases.It was concluded that the catalytic activity of different catalysts forhydroisomerization of light naphtha decreases in the following order:Pt/Al 2 O 3 > Pt/HY > Pt/BaY, as an example, the conversion of lightnaphtha using 0.5wt% Pt/Al 2 O 3 and WHSV of 1.5h-1 increases from31.2% at 230ºC to 64.7% at 310ºC. These results are in agreement with theworks of Ravishankar and Sivasanker [1996], Chica and Corma, [1999],Rachid et al. [2006]. 61

According to the results of G.C. analysis, the isomerization oflight naphtha leads to the formation of mainly mono-branched and di-branched molecules. Also, a very small amount of aromatic products isdetected. It was noted that, the total conversion of light naphtha for alltypes of catalysts is increased with increase in reaction temperature. Atreaction temperatures of 230, 250, 270℃ for Pt/BaY and Pt/HY catalysts,the selectivity to isomers is increased with no aromatics (51, 74, and 89) 66
  • 82. Chapter Five Results & Discussionfor Pt/BaY and (63,81, and 95) for Pt/HY, while, at 290 and 310℃selectivity to isomers is decreased and with formation of few aromaticsproducts (67 and 46) for Pt/BaY and (89 and 73) for Pt/HY. On the otherhand, for Pt/Al 2 O 3 catalyst it was found as temperature increase, the R R R Rselectivity to isomerization reaction decreases gradually because ofcreating of more and more aromatic products. It shows that for Pt/Al 2 O 3 R R R Rcatalyst at 230℃ is the best temperature of increasing isomerizationselectivity. It is important to mention here that for hydroisomerizationprocess over Pt/Al 2 O 3 catalyst it is necessary to use low temperatures in R R R Rorder to get good results of isomerization selectivity and to preventaromatic formation. This is in agreement with the investigation of [Falcoet al. [2000], and María et al. [2008].Moreover, it is important to say that the aromatization of alkanes must be avoidedbecause of new regulations requiring the reduction of aromatic compounds becauseof their detrimental environmental effects. The environmental concerns haveprompted legislation to limit the amount of total aromatics, particularly benzene, ingasoline. The specifications allow no more than 35% (v/v) of aromaticcompounds. The reduction of aromatics will have a negative impact on gasolineoctane ratings. To satisfy the environmental specifications, the total hydrogenationof benzene could be achieved, keeping the rest of the aromatic compounds underthe limit imposed by legislation [Chica et al., 2001, Marı´a et al., 2005].On the other hand, the acidity of the catalyst has a major influence on thehydroisomerization and hydrocracking yields. The pore opening of the molecularsieve can also have a major effect on the selectivity of these catalysts. If the poreopening is small enough to restrict the larger iso-paraffins from reacting at theacidic sites inside the pore, the catalyst will show good selectivity for converting n- 67
  • 83. Chapter Five Results & Discussionparaffins. Therefore, the ideal catalyst for selective hydroisomerization of n-paraffins should have both selectivity for isomerization, which comes from theproper balance of acidity and hydrogenation activity, and selectivity for reactingonly with n-paraffins, which comes from the size of the pore openings of themolecular sieve used.

It was concluded that the Pt/HY catalyst is more activethan Pt/BaY because it gives high conversion and selectivity to hydroisomerizationreaction as shown in Figures (5.23) to (5.25). On the other hand, Pt/Al 2 O 3 catalysttemperature greater than 230℃ the reaction selectivity goes toward aromatic andis the most active for light naphtha conversion at 230℃. But, under reactionhydrocracking products. Therefore, according to these results the optimumreaction temperature for isomerization is at 270℃ for all catalysts where suchtemperature gives the highest catalyst selectivity toward isomers. On the otherhand, it is indicated that the Pt/HY catalyst gives higher selectivity toward isomersthan Pt/BaY. This is attributed to the effect of cation type that forms the finalcatalyst, because the hydrogen atom is larger than the barium atom and its highacidity.

  • 90. Chapter Five Results & Discussion5.2.2 Effects of WHSVFigures (5.26) to (5.30) show the effects of WHSV on light naphtha conversionfor different catalysts at different reaction temperatures. According to manyreferences [Goodarz et al., 2008, Ping et al. 2009] the WHSV is a very importantfactor that determines the performance of hydroisomerization process of lightnaphtha. The WHSV was varied by changing the flow of liquid hydrocarbon feedand H 2 gas so that the molar ratio of hydrogen to hydrocarbon remainedunchanged at a value of 4. This value represents the best ratio for isomerizationreaction [Novaro et al., 2000, Ivanov et al., 2002, Rafael et al., 2008]. It was notedthat the conversion of the light naphtha decreases with increase in WHSV. Theresults show, that when WHSV equal 1.5hr-1 gives the highest conversion for allcatalyst types. While, at 4.5hr-1 value of WHSV gives the lowest conversion.Therefore, it is concluded that there is a inverse relationship between conversionand WHSV, where the increase in WHSV decreases the residence time, whichleads to a plenty of contact time of feedstock with the catalyst inside reactor, andthe latter means effective conversion for n-paraffins. This is in agreement with theexplanation of Goodarz et al. [2008]. 75

These figures are regarded as samples P Pfor groups of figures of the change in conversion with time for Pt/BaY, Pt/HY, andPt/Al 2 O 3 catalysts at (230 to 310℃),WHSV (1.5 to 4.5hr-1) at atmospheric R R R R P Ppressure which have the same behavior for the all catalyst types. The majorreaction products are iso- pentane, 2,2- DMB, and 2,3-DMB. Additionally, thereis another component that has low percentage in light naphtha and has not a cleareffect on conversion of hydroisomerization process and yield distribution, such as,the methylcyclopentane fraction which increases while the cyclohexane andbenzene fractions decrease [Rashed et al., 2006]. 78
  • 94. Chapter Five Results & DiscussionThe results indicate that the catalysts have high activity at initial period. It isnoted, that the conversion of light naphtha increases with increase in time, while,the selectivity of isomerization decreases with time. This conclusion is based oncatalyst deactivation because of formation of coke precursors over the acid sites.Catalyst deactivation is a result of a number of unwanted chemical and physicalchanges. The three major categories of deactivation mechanisms are sintering,poisoning, and coke formation or fouling. They may occur separately or incombination, but the net effect is always the removal of active sites from thecatalytic surface. On the other hand, fouling (coking) formation is the mostimportant type of catalyst deactivation in hydroisonerization process . Thecatalytic coke is gradually formed on both metal and supports by differentmechanisms. When the operation is extended, the coke precursors willpredominantly accumulate on the supports and continually polymerize throughacid catalyzed reactions [Novaro et al., 2000, Andreas, 2003, Khalid et al., 2007]. 79

  • 98. Chapter Five Results & DiscussionThe classical mechanism proceeds via an olefin intermediate that is formedthrough a dehydrogenation step on the metal site. As the olefin concentration underhydroisomerization conditions is rather low, due to the equilibrium position of thestrongly endothermic dehydrogenation step, it has to be guaranteed that a sufficientnumber of olefins is present to be converted to form a carbon on the acidic sites ofzeolite which is rather low as well. It was observed that the rate for theisomerization reaction strongly depends on the chain length of the involvedalkanes. The longer the chain length, the more stabilized the associated carbeniumion and the faster the isomerization reaction [Sergio et al., 2003, Christian, 2005].The activation energies of the isomerization reaction was determined over thetemperature of 230, 250, 270, 290, and 310℃ at a atmospheric pressure and aWHSV of 1.5, 3, and 4.5h-1 for conversion levels of up to15% where a linearcorrelation between the logarithmic isomerization of reaction rate constant (Lnk 1 )and the inverse temperature (1/T) is observed as shown in Figures (5.36) to (5.44),where the slope represents the (-E/R) and the intercepts represent the pre-exponential factor (Lnk o ). The apparent activation energies for the differentcatalysts are in the range between (15 – 24 kJ/mol) and are given in the summaryof the characterization data in Table (5.2) which are calculated from Arrheniusequation. It is noted, that there are a simple differences among its value. In general,the values of apparent activation energies are small and that the reduction valuesindicate the selectivity of hydroisomerization. Ln k 1 =Ln k o - Arrhenius equation 83

  • 105. Chapter Six Conclusions & Recommendations Chapter Six Conclusions & Recommendations 6.1 Conclusions The following major conclusions can be drawn from the present study:1. The hydroisomerization of Iraqi light naphtha was carried out to give high selectivity toward isomers. Therefore, the results of the present work can be applicable to the design of hydroisomerization unit in Iraq.2. The results show that the best operating temperature for the hydroisomerization process (with high selectivity toward isomerization) is 270°C.3. The results obtained in this work show high selectivity with Pt/HY and Pt/BaY catalysts, while, Pt/Al 2 O 3 has the low selectivity to the isomers. Therefore, the prepared catalysts follows the following sequence: Pt/HY > Pt/BaY > Pt/Al 2 O 3 which, are 95%, 89%, and 30% respectively.4. The total conversion of light naphtha was achieved to be 64.7% over Pt/Al 2 O 3 catalyst at 310℃ and WHSV1.5hr-1, with high aromatic formation, while, at the same conditions with Pt/HY and Pt/BaY catalysts it was 52 %, 50% respectively. Therefore, the following sequence for the catalysts conversion is concluded at 310℃: Pt/Al 2 O 3 > Pt/HY > Pt/BaY 90
  • 106. Chapter Six Conclusions & Recommendations and this sequence applicable for all temperatures range.5. In the present work, a kinetic model was developed to describe the hydroisomerization of light naphtha. This model was developed depending on our experimental data results and approach. Then, the kinetic parameters (k ° , k 1 , and E) are estimated, while, k 2 can be calculated from the derived equation as follows: C i-P = C P° [1- exp (- k 1 t) - [exp(-k 1 t) – exp(-k 2 t)] R R R R6. It was observed that the values of apparent activation energy for hydroisomerization of light naphtha (n-pentane, n-hexane, and 3MP) over the prepared catalyst takes the following order: E of 3MP < E of n-Hexane < E of n-Pentane7. The conversion of light naphtha and selectivity of hydroisomerization increase with a decrease in WHSV. 1.5hr-1 is the best which give high rate of isomers. 6-2 Recommendetions1- The investigation can be extended to study the influence of varying the pressure on activity and selectivity.2- An extension of theoretical work can be done by assuming a higher order of reaction rate for hydroisomerization reactions (not first order). 91
