Optimize isomerization reactor temperatures and component RON

Toraman, N., Kahraman, K., Tüpraş; Billings, P., Sabitov, O., Honeywell UOP

Isomerate is useful because it is paraffinic and contains no benzene, aromatics or sulfur. This pentane and hexane fraction of crude oil is known as light naphtha. The main objective of reactions is to increase the research octane number (RON) of the components. Decreasing fuel consumption without changing the product RON of isomerization units is discussed here.
