Conclusions

  1. 1.

    Operating experience with commercial units has shown that the use of AP-64 catalyst and the resultant improvement in technology (more thorough desulfurization of feedstock and maintenance of lower moisture contents in the reforming system), together with the use of a more severe temperature regime for the process, will produce a substantial increase in benzene and toluene yields.

     
  2. 2.

    The stability of the AP-64 catalyst in operation under severe conditions is quite good, and its service life is greater than that of the AP-56 catalyst.
