In moving-bed reactors, the catalyst goes in downflow through the reactor by gravitational forces. The fresh catalyst enters at the top of the reactor and the deactivated catalyst leaves the reactor at the bottom, while the hydrocarbon goes either in counteror cocurrent flow through the reactor. With this moving-bed system, the catalyst can be replaced either continuously or discontinuously. In ebullated-bed type of reactor, the addition and extraction of catalyst can be performed in normal operation.
It identifies the power of peptization of oil and characterizes the aromaticity of resins and their capability to maintain asphaltenes in solution. The higher the value of So, the higher the aromaticity. 4 ASSAY OF PETROLEUM A crude oil assay is a compilation of laboratory (physical and chemical properties) and pilot plant (distillation and product fractionation) data that characterize a specific crude oil. Assay analyses of whole crude oils are carried out by combining atmospheric and vacuum distillation units, which when combined will provide a TBP (True Boiling Point) distillation.
Archipelago type, in which asphaltenes are represented by small aromatic cores linked to other cores by means of bridging alkanes, that is, presence of islands of small aromatic cores linked by alkyl and sulfur bonds. , 2001). The way in which both types of asphaltenes aggregate is different. , 1996). 3 Tendency to Coke Formation The tendency to coke formation of crude oils is commonly measured with two analyses: Ramsbottom carbon and Conradson carbon residue. Matsushita et al. 2 type. 3) It was reported that the higher the relative solubility index, the lesser the coke formation and that at lower RSI more coke will be deposited, which will have less H/C (more aromatic coke).
