Catalyst АОК-73-24


Dehydrogenation of lower paraffin hydrocarbons

Product Type

Microspherical chromia-alumina catalyst is applied in petrochemicals to produce monomers for synthetic rubber and methyl tertbutyl ether (MTBE) synthesis. Catalyst АОК-73-24 shows high activity in dehydrogenation of isobutane into isobutylene.


Catalyst AOK-73-24 is applied in a fluidized bed. The isobutane-isobutylene fraction is used as a feed. The dehydrogenation reaction is endothermic and is carried out at a temperature of 540-610°C.

The dehydrogenation section consists of a dehydrogenation reactor and a regenerator. The catalyst circulates between reactor and regenerator. The catalyst is regenerated by coke burning-off.
