The butadiene and butane–butylene fraction are products of separation of the butylene–butadiene fraction (BBF) by chemisorption. Butadiene is a diene monomer for the production of elastomers and plastics. The butane–butylene fraction is used as a feedstock for various petrochemical processes, in particular, for the preparation of C4 oligomeric products and methyl tert-butyl ether. A residual content of butadiene in the butane–butylene fraction of more than 0.5 wt % has a negative effect when it is used as a raw material for petrochemical processes; it also reduces the yield of butadiene. The article describes the method of purification of the butane–butylene fraction from butadiene by returning the part of butane–butylene fraction mixed with a stream of absorption ammonium–copper solution in the form of reflux in the chemisorption column. Mixing of flows is carried out in a tubular turbulent apparatus mounted in a reflux line. The organization of an additional contact of part of butane–butylene fraction with copper ammonia solution will increase the sorption efficiency of the column.
