Title
(EN) GAS PHASE POLYMERIZATION PROCESS
(FR) PROCEDE DE POLYMERISATION EN PHASE GAZEUSE
Abstract
(EN)
A gas phase polymerization process for producing a polyolefin composition is described, which includes passing a gaseous stream containing hydrogen gas and one or more monomers, including ethylene monomers, through a reactor that includes a fluidized bed, under reactive conditions, in the presence of a catalyst that includes metallocene, to provide a polyolefin composition, wherein in one embodiment the fluidized bulk density is 60% or more of the settled bulk density (or, a voidage of 40% or less); and wherein the voidage is controlled by a number of factors including, in certain embodiments, (a) the reactor temperature being maintained at 100 °C or below; (b) the molar ratio of hydrogen gas to ethylene introduced into the reactor being 0.015 or below.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé de polymérisation en phase gazeuse pour produire une composition polyoléfinique. Ce procédé consiste à faire passer un flux gazeux contenant du gaz hydrogène et un ou plusieurs monomères, notamment des monomères d'éthylène, à travers un réacteur comprenant un lit fluidisé, dans des conditions de réaction, en présence d'un catalyseur contenant du métallocène, pour former une composition polyoléfinique. Dans un mode de réalisation, la densité apparente à l'état fluidisé est égale à au moins 60% de la densité apparente à l'état déposé (ou la porosité est inférieure ou égale à 40%) et la porosité est régulée par un certain nombre de facteurs, notamment, dans certains modes de réalisation, (a) le réacteur est maintenu à une température inférieure ou égale à 100 °C et (b) le rapport molaire entre le gaz hydrogène et l'éthylène introduits dans le réacteur est inférieur ou égal à 0,015.
