CRACKING OF HEAVY VACUUM GAS OIL ON MODIFIED HY ZEOLITE CATALYSTS
Data are given on the cracking of vacuum gas oil with HY zeolite catalysts on aluminum pillared natural calcium montmorillonite under vigorous cracking conditions in laboratory reactors of different volumes with a fixed catalyst bed at 500-600 degrees C. Increasing the cracking temperature and contact time of the vacuum gas oil with the catalyst was shown to increase the yield of the gas phase. The greatest gas yield was 42%. In this case, the gas contained C-2 - C-4 alkenes, including 28% propylene. We concluded that it should be possible to use aluminum pillared calcium montmorillonite as a component of a zeolite cracking catalyst for petrochemical processes.
