The liquid phase synthesis of octane enhancing ethers like, methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) or tertiary amyl methyl ether (TAME), can be advantageously performed in a reactive distillation (RD) processes with ion exchange resin catalyst. In the present contribution, a case study for dynamic simulation of reactive distillation process for the production of TAME is presented. Non-linear dynamic effects such as oscillations, multiple steady states and internal state multiplicity have been… CONTINUE READING
