  • Patent number: 4588790
    Abstract: A continuous gas fluidized bed process is disclosed for the production of polymer from monomer wherein a gaseous stream comprising monomer is passed through a fluidized bed in a reaction zone in the presence of catalyst under reactive conditions, withdrawing from the reaction zone polymeric product and a stream comprising unreacted gases and solid particles, cooling the stream and recycling the cooled stream to the reaction zone together with sufficient additional monomer to replace monomer polymerized and withdrawn as polymer product, and wherein at least a part of the recycle stream is cooled to condense a portion thereof and form a liquid-containing mixture wherein the weight ratio of liquid to solid particles is not less than about two to one, and introducing the mixture into the reaction zone wherein the liquid in the mixture is vaporized.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 4543399
    Abstract: A process is described for increasing the space time yield of polymer production in a fluidized bed reactor employing an exothermic polymerization reaction by cooling the recycle stream to below its dew point and returning the resultant two-phase fluid stream to the reactor to maintain the fluidized bed at a desired temperature above the dew point of the recycle stream.

  • Patent number: 4194892
    Abstract: A rapid adiabatic pressure swing process with a total cycle time of less than 30 seconds, at least 8 psig feed gas is introduced to a single adsorbent bed of 20-120 mesh particles and bed length not exceeding three times the feed-reverse flow pressure difference and less than 96 inches, a reverse flow period at least twice the feed gas period, and a one component enrichment factor of at least 4.
