  • Patent number: 11407698
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a synthesis method and synthesis reactor of high-selectivity 2-methylallyl chloride by taking isobutylene and chlorine gas as raw materials and performing a gas-phase chlorination reaction in a microchannel reactor with a cooling surface. The isobutylene and the chlorine gas are reacted in a T-shaped microchannel reactor, and the mixing speed is extremely fast. Meanwhile, the huge heat exchange area per unit volume can ensure that the reaction proceeds stably at a substantially constant temperature and has good controllability. Therefore, side reactions caused by excessive local temperature can be effectively suppressed, the reaction selectivity is high, and no coking phenomenon occurs.

  • Patent number: 11348018
    Abstract: A system that provides an improved approach for detecting and predicting failures in a plant or equipment process. The approach may facilitate failure-model building and deployment from historical plant data of a formidable number of measurements. The system implements methods that generate a dataset containing recorded measurements for variables of the process. The methods reduce the dataset by cleansing bad quality data segments and measurements for uninformative process variables from the dataset. The methods then enrich the dataset by applying nonlinear transforms, engineering calculations and statistical measurements. The methods identify highly correlated input by performing a cross-correlation analysis on the cleansed and enriched dataset, and reduce the dataset by removing less-contributing input using a two-step feature selection procedure. The methods use the reduced dataset to build and train a failure model, which is deployed online to detect and predict failures in real-time plant operations.
