The invention relates to the field of oil refining, petrochemical and gas processing, namely the method of producing acetylene from methane.

As you know, still there is no acceptable technology use and associated oil gases that tens of millions of tons per year are burned in flares. There are several directions for the development of technologies for utilization of this hydrocarbon, which conducted the study. This is, for example, the decomposition of C1-C3paraffins to produce hydrogen as the main target of the product. The other way is the transformation of natural gas in chemical products, which is based on a complex energy - and capital-intensive process prior conversion to synthesis gas.

Recently, interest single-stage process for conversion of methane in chemical products, such as high temperature (≥900°C) oxidative pyrolysis of C1-C3gas to acetylene. The fact of formation of acetylene by incomplete combustion of hydrocarbons known for a long time (Evlanov SF, Lavrov NV // Scientific basis for the catalytic conversion of hydrocarbons, 1977, s-232). When optimizing the yield of acetylene emphasis on the construction of the different types of burners and selection of different conditions of combustion of hydrocarbons. The process of oxidizing pyrolysate several features: a very short duration of initial substances in the reactor (a few milliseconds), the high reaction temperature (1200-1400°C), pressure is atmospheric or slightly increased, quenching the reaction products to a temperature below 300°C using as a cooling medium of water or oil quenching prevents the decomposition of the produced acetylene carbon and hydrogen).

In the patent EP No. 0178853 is a technology according to which part of the methane is partially burned, and high temperature gas mixture (T>1000°C) is passed through a fluidized bed or flowing layer of particles of inert material: fireclay, quartz, corundum, Zirconia, silicon carbide, etc. to reduce the temperature gradient in the gas stream. The maximum selectivity and yield With2+-hydrocarbons equal to 30% conversion of methane 62.8% at 1151°C.

The disadvantage of this method is that part of the methane consumed as fuel to heat the entire mass of gas to 1200-1400°C. in Addition, to save less strong than methane molecules With2+hydrocarbons used hardening of the whole mixture of water, i.e. rapid cooling of the mixture to ~300°C, which complicates the technology.

The study of the oxidative condensation of methane, in which the focus was on finding catalysts and study of the reaction mechanism occurring at 650-850°C (Usanational, the.Acrylol. Oxidative conversion of methane. M.: Nauka, 1998). It is at these temperatures (650-850°C) it is possible to obtain significant yields of ethane and ethylene in the oxidation of methane.

Closest to the present invention is a method of producing hydrocarbons From2-C4where was first used the term "catalytic oxidative pyrolysis of methane" (As the USSR №1216937, prototype). This method is carried out at between 800 and 950°C, contact time of 0.1-2.5 sec, the content in the initial mixture 10-20 vol.% oxygen and 90-80% vol. methane in the presence of a catalyst composition, mol.%: Bi2O30,95-to 7.59 and MeO 92,41-99,05, where Me is Mg, Ca, Sr, BA. The catalyst was allowed to increase the yield of hydrocarbons From2+up to 10 mol.% on missed methane selectivity was 78.5%. Nevertheless, the main products are ethane and ethylene. Acetylene in the resulting mixture and the conversion of methane is very small - up to 20%, which gives low outputs by product.

The purpose of this invention is to increase the yield and selectivity of the process for acetylene through the use of the catalyst of a new type and changes in technology oxidative pyrolysis.

The proposed method of producing acetylene, oxidizing pyrolysis of methane in the presence of oxygen comprises using as the catalyst heat-treated in air at 900-1100°C terralavoro alloy in the form of spirals, ribbons, art is Rina and other forms. Heating of the catalyst is carried out by passing through it an electric current to a temperature of 700-1200°C., and the ratio of methane: oxygen change in the range 5:1 to 15:1.

Contact oxygen-containing mixtures on the basis of methane in certain proportions of CH4/About2(air) with wire working fehrle, heated and electric current to temperatures from 750°C to >1200°C gives the catalytic effect of the change in selectivity With2the hydrocarbon compared with the gas, oxidizing pyrolysis of methane. The gas mixture is served cold, and only contact with the heated ferralium alloy leads to the catalytic effect. As the gas mixture is served cold, the overshoot part of the cold gas leads to a dramatic cooling of the reaction products formed upon contact with high temperature wire, i.e. hardening of the products of oxidative pyrolysis and increase the output of C2hydrocarbons (primarily ethane.

As the catalyst used alloy "wire" in the form of various shapes, mostly in the form of a wire diameter of 0.25 mm

For this purpose, the reactor is equipped with a window of optical quartz 5. On the hot wire serves the source of the reaction gas. The gas is in contact with the heated spiral in and out. The sample mixture after the reactor is directed to a chromatographic analysis carried out on the chromatograph brand COLOR-500M.
