HINDERED DIFFUSION OF ASPHALTENES AT ELEVATED TEMPERATURE AND PRESSURE

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

During this time period work proceeded in two main areas, the performance and analysis of petroleum asphaltene diffusional uptake experiments at 325 C and the preparation and testing of some new carbon based catalysts. In the first area, we performed studies of the diffusion controlled uptake of petroleum asphaltenes into a porous carbon catalyst at 325 C. The experiments were performed under an inert He atmosphere using 1-methylnaphthalene as a solvent. These purpose of these experiments was to extend our previous data which was taken and reported in the prior semi-annual report. These previous experiments were performed only up to ... continued below

Description

During this time period work proceeded in two main areas, the performance and analysis of petroleum asphaltene diffusional uptake experiments at 325 C and the preparation and testing of some new carbon based catalysts. In the first area, we performed studies of the diffusion controlled uptake of petroleum asphaltenes into a porous carbon catalyst at 325 C. The experiments were performed under an inert He atmosphere using 1-methylnaphthalene as a solvent. These purpose of these experiments was to extend our previous data which was taken and reported in the prior semi-annual report. These previous experiments were performed only up to a temperature of 250 C. A comparison between the experimental data and model simulated data showed that the mathematical model satisfactorily fitted the adsorptive diffusion of the petroleum asphaltenes onto the porous carbon at 325 C. Comparing with previous results, the adsorption constant continued to decrease with an increase in temperature for the petroleum asphaltene/1-methylnaphthalene system. Also during this time period, some carbon catalyst supports were prepared in our laboratory and several sets of data were obtained in adsorption-diffusion uptake experiments using a petroleum asphaltene with toluene as solvent. These data are presented in this report, although, complete fitting of the data with the mathematical model has not yet been performed. These calculations will be performed during the next time period.
