Abstract:  A method of optimum temperature determination in a contact reactor for the oxidation of sulfur dioxide, produced by burning hydrogen sulfide, to sulfur trioxide is described. On the basis of the equation of reaction rate and material balance, some general relationships between the temperatures in reactor and furnace for H2S burning and other quantities (concentration, gas flow, air temperature, and degree of conversion) have been derived. These relationships are founded on plant experiments and have been linearized. The coefficients of linear relations have been determined by regression analysis. The method may be used for optimum control of sulfuric acid production or other chemical productions.
