Are you challenged with managing the severity of reactor operation on a fixed-bed reactor and planning catalyst regeneration or replacement? It is important to analyze the catalyst activity and predict the end-of-useful life for the catalyst in order to optimize near and long-term economics. This process requires the calculation of normalized weighted average bed temperature, selecting historical data to “train” the correlations, and auto-updating with new data.
