Catalytic reforming is a chemical process which is important for the deep processing of the oil, which is used to convert petroleum refinery naphthas distilled from crude oil (typically having low octane ratings) into high-octane liquid products(also called reformates), which are premium blending stocks for high-octane gasoline.
“Reforming” also refers to the rearrangements of hydrocarbon molecules into new structures. Normal paraffins and naphthenes in the feedstocks can be converted by reforming into isoparaffins and aromatics with the help of the reforming catalyst so that high octane gasoline can be produced whose octane number is over 90. Because of less content of olefins in high octane gasoline excellent stability can be obtained. By this process aromatic products can also be produced such as benzene, toluene and xylenes.
SINOCATA offer the semi-regenerative catalyst to maximize reformate benefit.
