Adiabatic tests of C3H8 CPO were performed at the pilot-scale and analyzed by a detailed reactor model. The thermal behaviour of the reformer represents a crucial issue when hydrocarbons higher than CH4 are fed. However, a stable operation of the reactor can be achieved by optimizing the catalyst aspect ratio.
