The paper presents the results of the application of a physically grounded mathematical model, verified through numerous practical examples, intended for estimating the effect of some design factors (membrane thickness and the system of high-purity hydrogen outlet from the under-membrane space of membrane elements) on the effectiveness and efficiency of the production
of highly pure hydrogen from the products of steam conversion of hydrocarbons in advanced membrane catalytic devices.

Keywords: mathematical modeling, design factors, membrane catalytic devices, high-purity hydrogen, raw hydrocarbons
