This paper presents the results of using a mathematical model of membrane extraction of highly pure hydrogen from the products of steam conversion of hydrocarbons. The model is intended for estimating the basic parameters of a number of membrane catalytic systems different in efficiency and design. It is shown that the mathematical model accurately describes the experimental data available in the literature, as well as the results of calculating the parameters of a membrane catalytic reformer by a “kinetic” mathematical model.

Keywords: Mathematical modeling; technological and design parameters; membrane catalytic systems; highly pure hydrogen; methane; natural gas
