Therefore, achieving the desulfurization required to produce extremely low-sulfur fuels was very difficult under the conventional operation. Hydrotreating units in the past were built with one reactor, to meet the 500 ppm S specification; however, a second reactor is needed to cope with the actual requirements. Several attempts have been made also to change the operating conditions to improve performance of the units and to achieve the stipulated level of desulfurization. From a co-current fluid-dynamics, the first modification went into countercurrent feeding.
As mentioned above, the cleavage of the C−N bond requires the hydrogenation of the aromatic rings of the molecule prior to nitrogen removal . Since the hydrogenation reactions are thermodynamically controlled, it implies that the position of the hydrogena tion equilibrium will affect denitrogenation rates. Mathur et al. evaluated the kinetic rate constants of quinoline, isoquinoline, methyl-substituted quinoline, and of two-, threeand four-rings nitrogen compounds. They evidenced that there is no steric hindrance in HDN reactions, and assigned it to the flexibility of the hydrogenated molecules, which actually undergo C−N bond cleavage [16,17].
2. Process Naphtha hydrotreatment takes place at temperatures from 290 C to 370 C, pressures from 350 to 450 psig and space velocity between 2 and 6 h−1 . Preferred catalysts are usually CoMo, but if coker naphthas and in some instances FCC or HCK naphthas are incorporated to the feed, then NiMo can represent a better option. The effect of temperature differs from one reaction to another. Sulfur removal begins at temperatures as low as 230 C, and increases with temperature increase, but lever off at about 340 C.
