Abstract

The authors review some important and directly utilizable results of the research work on pyrolysis carried out at the Hungarian Oil and Gas Research Institute. Apparatuses and experimental methods are briefly described. The most important results of the pyrolysis of individual hydrocarbons, hydrocarbon mixtures and naphta fractions, as well as the method elaborated for the calculation of yield pattern are outlined. Results obtained in different reactors are compared and evaluated. On the basis of experiments carried out with various naphta cuts, the effects of feed composition and operation conditions on yield patterns are demonstrated.
