Abstract

The Paulsboro Laboratory of the Mobil Oil Corporation is responsible for research, development and technical service for refinery processes and related products. Most of these processes involve catalysis and an extensive experimental program is required to support this effort. The bulk of this experimental program takes place in small laboratory reactors ranging from a few cc’s of catalyst to a liter. Figure 1 shows a typical set of laboratory pilot plants.
