MAZZONE, L. C. A.  y  FERNANDES, F. A. N.. Modeling of Fischer-Tropsch synthesis in a tubular reactor. Lat. Am. appl. res. [online]. 2006, vol.36, n.3, pp.141-148. ISSN 0327-0793.

Fischer-Tropsch synthesis is an important chemical process for the production of liquid fuels and olefins. In recent years, the abundant availability of natural gas and the increasing demand of olefins and liquid fuels have led to a high interest to further develop this process. A mathematical model of a tubular reactor used for syngas polymerization was developed and the carbon monoxide polymerization was studied from a modeling point of view. Simulation results show that different parameters affect syngas conversion and carbon product distribution, such as operating pressure, gas velocity and syngas composition. Optimization of several hydrocarbon products were done in order to search for the best operating conditions for their production.

Palabras clave : Multitubular Reactor; Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis; Liquid Fuels; Olefins.
