In catalytic reforming Process:
- increasing the initial boiling point leads to increasing in hydrogen production. Any Explanation ?
- How can we increase the purity of the hydrogen (recycle gas) ?
- What is the maximum allowable moisture (ppm) in the feed (Heavy Naphtha) ?May-2022

If the dehydrogenation into aromatics is greater than the cracking reaction into light paraffin's, then more hydrogen is produced. This may happen when moving from heavy naphtha into a more full-range that captures toluene and benzene precursors. At a certain point, lighter feed will no longer produce more hydrogen.
