Optimization of Ammonia Oxidation Using Response Surface Methodology
AbstractIn this paper, the design of experiments and response surface methodology were proposed to study ammonia oxidation process. The following independent variables were selected: the reactor’s load, the temperature of reaction and the number of catalytic gauzes, whereas ammonia oxidation efficiency and N2O concentration in nitrous gases were assumed as dependent variables (response). Based on the achieved results, statistically significant mathematical models were developed which describe the effect of independent variables on the analysed responses. In case of ammonia oxidation efficiency, its achieved value depends on the reactor’s load and the number of catalytic gauzes, whereas the temperature in the studied range (870–910 °C) has no effect on this dependent variable. The concentration of nitrous oxide in nitrous gases depends on all three parameters. The developed models were used for the multi-criteria optimization with the application of desirability function. Sets of parameters were achieved for which optimization assumptions were met: maximization of ammonia oxidation efficiency and minimization of the N2O amount being formed in the reaction.
