Rezel ISO-N can be used for C4, C5 & C6 isomerization. It is a suitable replacement for incumbent used in Penex units.Reactions taking place include skeletal isomerization, ring opening (naphthenics), and aromatics (benzene) hydrogenation. The ISO-N isomerization catalyst has chlorinated alumina acting as the carrier, and platinum as the active component. It provides higher activity, and is suitable for process with low reaction temperature between 120 to 170℃ and reaction pressure from 1.7 to 1.8 MPa. The isomerization ratio of C5 can be as high as 76%.
