The paper deals with modelling of catalytic reactors in which an irreversible catalyst deactivation takes place. The dimensionless model equations are derived for heterogeneous models of well-mixed regions in series, an algorithm for their solution is proposed. The obtained results are compared with experimental ones in the case of hydrogenation of benzene on a nickel catalyst with thiophene as a poison.
