Abstract

A discussion on the design and control of integrated methyl cyclohexane dehydrogenation/nitrobenzene hydrogenation plant covers thermal efficiency; equilibrium conversion and reaction rate; realizing energy savings and reduced reactor size; variables affecting coupling endothermic and exothermic reactions in a single unit; recycle of unconverted reactants; implications for design and control; operational and control difficulties arising from complex behavior; different plantwide control strategies; preventing catalyst deactivation; and implementing a plantwide control structure. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE 2010 Spring National Meeting (San Antonio, TX 3/21-25/2010).
