Enhancement the Octane Number of Sudanese Gasoline (Nile Blend)

Full Text PDF


Gasoline is one of most important sources of energy but when manufactured with low octane number may leave great risk that affect the human health and environment impact. Therefore processes of gasoline production must be developed. Zeolite material dependence on their extremely high frame work extended interactive surface, ability to interact with molecule and cations. They show a wide variety of interesting properties which result in remarkable applications in the fields of catalysts, gas separations, selective adsorption and water softening. Zeolite catalyst loaded with finely (Sr) metal have been used in hydro-cracking, catalytic cracking. The zeolite used is the synthetic zeolite (type Y) has high thermal stability, good surface area and its heterogeneous catalyst which can be separated after treatment and may be reactivated. The study of the octane number was carried out for this zeolite. The gasoline was obtained from market (commercial gasoline) it has octane number 91.7 determined by IROX-2000.The gasoline was treated by zeolite in the temperature about 331 Kelvin. The synthetic zeolite (type-Y) raised the octane number (from 91.7 to 92.4).
