What is Xylen?

Xylene (English dimethylbenzene) is an anemic, clear fluid with a fragrant odor. It is a thing in which 2 hydrogens on the benzene ring are changed by methyl groups. The boiling point is 137-140 ° C. Xylene is divided right into ortho Xylene, m-xylene, and p-xylene are 3 isomers. In industry, xylene defines the mix of those isomers as well as ethylbenzene. The top qualities are typically exceptional and likewise first-grade products with a purification variety of 3 ° C as well as likewise 5 ° C for cleansed water. It can be arbitrarily combined with ethanol, chloroform or ether, and insoluble in water. Commonly utilized in organic solvents as well as artificial medications, coverings, materials, dyes, nitroglycerins along with chemicals. Xylene is moderately unsafe in addition to additionally cancer causing somewhat. Xylene air contamination primarily originates from synthetic fibers, plastics, gas, rubber, ingredients of numerous coverings, numerous adhesives, water-proof products, as well as furthermore from shedding gas of gas as well as tobacco leaves.

Xylen's Coproduction Approach

Para-xylene is produced in a countercurrent simulated moving bed using a feedstock containing a mixture of Xylen and ethylbenzene that has previously removed hydrocarbons containing 9-10 carbon atoms, the feedstock having the following weight composition:

EB: Ethylbenzene 5.6%

PX: Paraxylene 22.6%

MX: m-xylene 49.9%

OX: o-xylene 21.9%.

The pilot plant used in this example consisted of 24 beds 1.1 meters long and 0.021 meters in diameter. Each column was loaded with 344 grams of barium-exchanged X zeolite with a moisture content of 5.5% expressed as loss on ignition at 900°C. The operating temperature is 175°C, the suction pressure of the circulating pump is maintained at 10 bar, all streams are continuously injected or discharged under flow control, except that the intermediate raffinate is continuously discharged under pressure control, and the flow rates of injection and discharge are all at Expressed under ambient pressure conditions and 20°C. The raffinate (R2) and the middle fraction R1 (middle raffinate) are withdrawn continuously. The total number of beds is 24. There are 5 beds between desorbent injection and raffinate discharge, 9 beds between extract discharge and material injection, 5 beds between material injection and intermediate raffinate discharge, intermediate raffinate discharge and There are 3 beds between raffinate discharge and 2 beds between raffinate discharge and desorbent injection.

The operating conditions are as follows:

Material: 3.24 liters/hour

Solvent: 5.52 l/h desorbent (99.06% p-diethylbenzene and 0.94% other C10 aromatic hydrocarbons)

Extraction: 3.27 liters/hour

Intermediate raffinate (R1): 4.29 liters/hour

Raffinate (R2): 1.2 liters/hour

Circulation flow (in segment 1): 16.4 l/h

The R2/R1 ratio is 0.28.

The switching time (period) of the valve is 70.8 seconds.

After distillation of p-diethylbenzene, the resulting extract was withdrawn continuously to give a stream of 0.71 liters/hour of 99.7% pure p-xylene.

1.2 liters/hour raffinate carries out distillation, obtains fluid flow rate 0.13 liters/hour, and its weight composition is as follows:

EB: Ethylbenzene 0.1%

PX: p-xylene 1.7%

MX: m-xylene 73.9%

OX: o-xylene 24.2%.

The crystallization section consists of two static crystallizers with alternating cooling and heating periods as crystals are formed. A refrigeration unit was used to generate meta-xylene crystals at -60 °C. After crystallization, the mother liquor is drained off. The meta-xylene crystals were washed with very high purity molten meta-Xylen while purification was performed by partial melting at -45°C.

The meta-xylene crystallization yield was 29%.

The amount of p-xylene produced by all units was 25 times that of m-xylene, namely 0.71 l/h and 99.7% p-Xylen and 0.028 l/h and 99.0% m-xylene respectively.
