Abstract  

A thermogravimetric method is proposed for study of the kinetic parameters of coked HZSM-5 zeolite regeneration. The technique, which makes use of integral thermogravimetric curves, was optimized by microprocessed integrated mathematical methods. The kinetic parameters obtained from the TG curves are the activation energy, the rate constants, the half-life times, and in particular the coke removal time as a function of temperature. The activation energy calculated by using the Flynn and Wall kinetic method was 81.4 kJ mol−1. It was observed that, to remove 99% of the coke from the zeolite in a period of 1 h, it would be necessary to carry out thermo-oxidation at 748 K, with a dry air purge flow of 120 cm3 min−1.
