The present invention relates to a reactor containing a device for distributing at least one gas phase and at least one liquid phase circulating in said reactor in an upward flow mode.

In particular, it relates to a reactor equipped with a similar device and placed at the entrance of the reaction zone or zones of contact of the gas/liquid, which may consist of a layer of solid particles in the form of filler, possibly catalytic.

It applies in particular to the reactor for cleaning or Hydrotreating liquid load, for example, for catalytic purification of crude distillates heavy oil.

It is widely known that for the type of reactor, equipped with a fixed bed of catalyst is necessary as it is possible more uniform distribution of gas and liquid phase.

It is also necessary to provide a more uniform and homogeneous distribution of the two phases along the length of the cross-section of the above-mentioned reactor to optimize contact of the gas/liquid in the reactor and provide almost identical modes of different zones mentioned reactor.

As is known from the document US 3441498, a similar distribution can be achieved using a switch plates, equipped with a vertical pipe and what tertiary, designed to achieve a practically uniform distribution of the gas phase and the liquid phase over the whole cross section of the reactor, often which has a cylindrical shape.

This type of switch plates, thus, allows to distribute the gas phase through the holes of the plates, and the liquid phase through the pipes.

In addition, in patent US 6123323 described switchgear used in the reactor, fueled by an upward flow of the mixture of liquid and gas.

The said device consists of a distribution plate that occupies all or part of the local section of the reactor, limiting the volume in which there is a separation of gas and liquid, or a part of it. The gas passes through holes distributed over the whole cross section of the plate. Liquid separately from the gas flowing through the vertical pipes crossing the plate and continuing under the surface of the separation liquid/gas, or through the sites section of the reactor is not closed by the plate.

Such a reactor, the power of which gas and liquid is carried out by pipeline, located on the bottom of the tank, is interesting from a technical point of view, however, has significant disadvantages.

In fact, the mode of operation of such a reactor is not optimal, because the bad gas is mixed in the cross-section of the reactor; usually gas lift up the raised center of the cross section in the form of a post. It distorts the surface of the section of gas-liquid distribution under the plate and produces an uneven distribution of gas under the plate.

In addition, the possible penetration of gas inside the pipes, which is undesirable. The consequence of the presence of a column of gas is the uneven distribution of gas; in the Central zone of the plate will be more gas.

In addition to the above, the separation of gas creates a significant distortion that can cause ripple currents and local violations of the uniformity of gas distribution.

The present invention is intended to eliminate the above mentioned disadvantages by use of a reactor with a catalyst bed containing a distribution plate that serves to achieve a uniform distribution of the gas phase over the whole cross section of the reactor and do not affect the distribution of the liquid phase even in the case of distortion of the surface section of gas-liquid.

In connection with the above-mentioned purpose, the present invention is proposed reactor for treatment or hydrotreatment of liquid load, containing at least one packing layer, essentially liquid phase and essentially gas phase at the bottom of the reactor and separated by a boundary surface, and a distribution plate provided with at least one main nozzle, providing circulation of the LM is in transition phase towards the layer, and at least one channel serving to supply the gas phase in said layer, characterized in that the plate also has at least one composite pipe intended for circulation of the liquid phase in the direction of the layer or to the gas phase in the layer.

Combined pipe may have a height less than the height of the main pipe and the greater the height of the channel.

Combined pipe may have a cross-section of flow, a smaller cross sectional flow main pipe.

Combined tube may be a tube, open at both ends; the flow area of the flow can be a diametrical cross-section of the said tube.

Combined tube may be a tube, open at both ends; the flow area of the flow can be a diametrical cross-section mentioned combined pipe containing narrowing.

The narrowing may be a washer with a hole located at one end of the combined socket.

Combined tube may be a tube, closed at the bottom end; the initial section of such pipe may constitute at least one hole located in the side wall of the above-mentioned socket.

The main PA is logging can be located coaxially in the hole, available in the above-mentioned plate and having a Diametric size greater than the size mentioned pipe.

Combined pipe can be placed between the main pipe and the hole aligned with them.

Other characteristics and advantages of the present invention are understood when reading the following further descriptions are only illustrative and not restrictive purposes; the following are attached:

- 1, which in the form of a longitudinal section shows a schematic section of the reactor according to the invention, containing the distribution plate;

- Figure 2, which on an enlarged scale showing a detail view of a variant of implementation of the reactor according to the invention;

- Figure 3, which on an enlarged scale shows another detail view of another variant of implementation of the reactor according to the invention;

- Figure 3, which on an enlarged scale shows another detail view of the third variant of implementation of the reactor according to the invention.

Figure 1 shows a closed reactor 10, preferably having the form of a vertical elongated tube and in General contains in the upper part of the product feed means (not shown), providing the possibility of obtaining at least one layer of the filler 12.

Under the layer of filler understand the totality of solid particles having a uniform grain size order the ka of several millimeters and preferably with catalytic activity, providing the opportunity for the catalytic layer, consisting of both fresh and regenerated catalyst.

In addition, it is understood that the term "reactor", as used above, includes both capacity and columns.

Said reactor in the region of the floor 14, preferably in the middle region of DNA that contains the pipeline supply 16 working mixture 18 of the gas phase and the liquid phase (or load).

The gas phase preferably contains a mixture composed of pure hydrogen or a mixture composed of pure hydrogen, and residual hydrogen and vaporous hydrocarbons; liquid phase mainly contains hydrocarbons.

The working mixture may contain other phases, including the water in the mixture with air or with oxygen or hydrocarbon(s) in the mixture with air or with oxygen.

The layer of filler in the lower part of the above-mentioned reactor is limited to a transverse perforated plate 20, located at a distance from the bottom 14 of the reactor and occupies space up to the side wall 22 of the reactor; the role plates will be explained in further description.

It is widely known that this reactor provides the distribution and mixing of the gas streams and liquid in such reactor during its operation, the upward flow. For carrying out the desired catalytic is eacli, thus, it is necessary to ensure contact of the gas/liquid/solid phase during the reaction. For this purpose, the catalyst present in the layer of filler is maintained in the reactor in a stationary state or is the flow of the gas/liquid state of the fluidized bed.

As best seen from Figure 1, the distribution plate 20, or the distribution plate, limits the filler layer 12 and below in the direction of flow relative to the supply line 16 and the bottom 14 of the reactor.

Mentioned plate consists of a flat plate 24, occupying the entire cross section of the reactor up to the side wall 22.

This plate contains many passing through holes 26, 28, 30. The holes 26 next to them are vertical hollow tube 32, open at both ends, hereinafter in this description are referred to as "basic connections" and intended for passing on them predominantly liquid phase L of the working mixture. Holes 28 are designed to accommodate end-to-end to them hollow vertical tubes 34, open at both ends and is designated as "combined pipes". On the said pipe is leaking or predominantly liquid phase L of the working mixture, or a predominantly gas phase G of the working mixture. The holes 30 in the plate are free, preferably not contain hollow tubes and clicks the form of the channels, through which passes a predominantly gas phase G of the mixture.

Thus, the distribution plate consists of a set of main nozzles 32, the combined nozzles 34 and channels 30.

This plate, therefore, provides a moving flow of gas and liquid from the bottom of the reactor to a layer of filler.

Height H along the axis of the main nozzle 32 is greater than the height H' - axis of the combined nozzle 34, which in turn exceeds the height of the channels 30, which in this case coincides with the thickness E of the plate 24. The heights H and H' counts from the lower surface of the plate 24 to the lower open end of the main pipe and composite pipe, which enters the stream.

Sectional flow area S1 of the main nozzle 32 in the radial direction is preferably greater than the area of the cross-flow area S2 of the combined nozzles 34 and bore S3 channels 30. Square cross-sections S2 and S3 are preferably equal to each other, but they can be different, while not exceeding the cross-sectional area S1.

In this case, the cross sections S1 to S3 correspond to the open cross-section, through which in the direction of layer 12 is circulating flow (gas or liquid). As the cross sections S1 and S2 are considered internal diametral cross-section of the tubes forming the main pipe 32 and to milirovannie nozzles 34; section S3 corresponds to the diametrical cross-section of the channels 30.

Assume that the channels, tubes and holes, into which are inserted the said nozzles, can have any geometric shape cross-section, equal or different between them, including round, elliptical or any other shape.

Similarly, the number and placement of the nozzles 32, 34 and channels 30 on the plate 24 and their size is chosen using any methods known to a person skilled in the art depending on the desired minimum and maximum operating values of the gas flow.

It should be clarified that any range of operating values of gas consumption mentioned characteristics must ensure the formation of a cloud of gas 36 under the plate 20 and the surface 38 of the partition liquid/gas located above the lower ends of the main pipe 32.

Preferably, as in the example shown in figure 1, the main nozzle 32 leaked liquid phase L of the mixture, and the combined nozzles, and channels 30 to the gas phase G. it follows that the lower ends of the main pipes 32 are immersed in the working mixture 18 provided on the bottom 14 of the reactor, and that the upper ends of the above-mentioned nozzles are communicated with a layer of filler 12.

In a similar manner the lower ends of the combined nozzles 34 are in the area of the f gas 36, while their upper ends are communicated with a layer of filler 12.

The channels 30 provide a message cloud of gas 36 with a layer of filler 12.

Preferred is a possibility that between the plate 20 and the grid supporting the layer of filler was provided a free space.

This reduces the pressure loss on the plate in the case of circulation of the liquid and/or gas phase at high speeds.

The terms "upper(top)and lower(bottom)used in the present description should be considered in accordance with the scheme of the reactor shown in figure 1.

During operation of such reactor fuel mixture is fed to the bottom of the reactor 14 through the pipeline 16. As we ascend, the mixture distribution plate 20 contained in the gas phase is separated from the mixture. The separated gas phase is fed under the plate 20 with the formation of a cloud of gas 36 and surface 38 of the partition, the gas/liquid between the cloud of gas and free gas in the liquid phase of the working mixture.

It is understood that in accordance with the above-mentioned cloud of gas 36 is formed under the influence of pressure losses at various pipes and channels, the number, sizes and designs which are determined so that the surface 38 at best above the bottom ends of the main pipes 32 and under the lower ends of the Combi the new nozzles, and in the worst case over the lower ends of the combined nozzles, not reaching the lower surface of the plate 20.

So, in the construction shown in figure 1, not containing gas liquid L flows through the main pipe 32 and enters the layer 12; the separated gas phase G in the cloud 36, simultaneously circulates in the combined nozzle 34 and the channels 30 and enters the layer 12.

Mentioned liquid and gas phase, preferably evenly distributed over the entire area of the plates 20, pass through the layer in ascending stream in order to perform the required chemical reaction and extracted from the layer by any means known to a person skilled in the technical field.

Naturally, with the design of the reactor, according to which the surface 38 is located above the lower ends of the combined nozzle 34, the gas phase in the cloud 36 passes only through the channels 30, while the free gas from the liquid phase at the same time flows through the main pipe 32 and a pipe 34 and enters the layer 12.

Thus, due to the presence of two types of nozzles mentioned plate provides greater flexibility used values of gas and liquid.

In addition, due to the use of small nozzles height of this plate allows you to comply with the requirement of compactness Rea the Torah.

In addition, this reactor makes it possible to use a large number of ways of circulation of the gas, in particular, with increasing consumption, while coalescence of gas does not occur.

An implementation option, shown in figure 2 differs from Figure 1 that the combined nozzles 34' have a cross-section identical to the cross section of the main pipe, and the cross-flow section S2, a lower transverse flow area S1 of the main pipe 32.

Smaller bore is implemented using a narrowing of the 40 available in the combined nozzles 34'. The aforementioned narrowing of the cross section is preferably formed using a washer, preferably with a hole at the center, the outer diameter of which coincides with the inner diameter of the tube forming nozzle, and an inner diameter which allows to determine the flow area S2.

Mentioned narrowing preferably located on one or the other end of the composite pipe, but it can also be placed anywhere between the two ends of the above-mentioned nozzles.

In the embodiment shown in Figure 3, the lower ends of the combined nozzle 34", directed to the bottom of the reactor are closed, while the upper ends of save the message with a layer of the filler 12. To ensure messages clouds of gas 36 with a layer 12 in laterally the wall of the composite pipe has at least one hole 42. The said hole, in this case, which is round, has a reduced cross section S2, the size of which corresponds to the size of the same section in figure 1 or 2.

Through this hole, the lower point of which together with the bottom surface of the plate 24 defines a height H' of this branch, from the cloud 36 enters the gas phase, and then passing the combined nozzle 34 and into the layer 12.

Of course that may be provided with a number of holes 42 placed on the circle next to each other and the axis of one over the other, or both of the mentioned methods.

In addition, the hole may have a shape other than round, for example, the shape of the slit.

In the embodiment shown in Figure 4, the plate 24 has openings 44, preferably of circular shape, in which are placed coaxially to the main and combined nozzle and which form the above-mentioned channels.

As can be seen from this drawing, the main nozzles 46 and a pipe 48 is placed coaxially within one another and are aligned with the holes 44. As a consequence, the openings 44 have a radial size, a large radial dimension of the combined nozzles 48, which in turn have a radial size, a large radial dimension of the main nozzles 46.

Similarly, the height H VI the x pipe is greater the height H' of the combined nozzles, which in turn exceeds the height of the holes 44, in this case coinciding with the thickness E of the plate 24.

The upper ends of the main and combined nozzles preferably accommodated in the hole 44 so that their upper ends are in the same horizontal plane as well noticeable in figure 4.

Naturally, the person skilled in the art machinery to ensure the connection of the various nozzles with a hole may use any means, including, for example, radial crosspieces 50 soldered to the outer side surface of the main pipe and the inner side surface of the combined socket and jumper 52 soldered to the outer side surface of the combined tube and to the inner side surface of the hole 44.

In this arrangement, the flow area S1 corresponds to a diametrical section of the main pipe, the cross section S2 is the cross-sectional area between the outer lateral surface of the main pipe and the inner lateral surface of the combined nozzle, and the cross section S3 - cross-sectional area between the outer lateral surface of the combined nozzle and the side surface of the hole 44.

In accordance with mentioned above in connection with Figures 1 to 3, the cross-sectional area S1 exceeds the cross-sectional area S2, which in turn exceeds the area of the CoE is to be placed S3 or equal to it.

Thus, the lower ends of the main pipes 46 are immersed in free gas from the liquid phase, and the upper ends extend into the filler layer 12 to allow passage of the liquid phase of the said layer of filler. The space covered by the section S2 between the main nozzles and the combined nozzles, and the space covered by the section S3 between the combined pipes and holes 44, provides circulation and passage of the gas phase of the gas clouds 36 to the layer 12.

The present invention is not limited to the described examples of its implementation and covers all variants of its implementation and cash equivalents.

In particular, instead of the mixture described above, one can consider the case of flow of the liquid phase L to the bottom of the reactor by means of the first means to supply when applying the gas phase G under the distribution plate with the other means of filing with the formation of gas clouds and the interface liquid/gas.
