Abstract: In the present study, a mathematical model is developed for centrifugal radial flow reactor for hydro desulphurization of naphtha with kinetics available in the literature. Also, an investigation into the effect of various process parameters like temperature, pressure, LHSV and H2/Naphtha ratio on the design of centrifugal radial flow reactor. Effect of the above process parameters on mal distribution has been evaluated using the mathematical model.
