    Abstract

    Risk of thermal runaway for epoxidation is not negligible and should be analyzed and assessed. In industry, epoxidation of vegetable oils is carried out by the oxidation of Prileschajew, involving the in situ production of percarboxylic acid from hydrogen peroxide and the corresponding carboxylic acid. Different research groups have developed kinetic models under isothermal or isoperibolic mode for this liquid-liquid reaction system. Nevertheless, none of them have built a kinetic model under adiabatic mode. Such kinetic model under adiabatic condition is important to evaluate the thermal risk of a process.During this study, a kinetic model was built for the epoxidation of cottonseed oil by peracetic acid by using ARSST system, which works under near-adiabatic condition. This kinetic model can fit the experimental reaction temperature. Then, based on this model, the influence of different inlet parameters (i.e. initial temperature and concentrations) on safety parameters, i.e., Time-to-Maximum rate under adiabatic conditions and adiabatic temperature rise was investigated.
