This paper presents a two dimensional model of a Preferential Oxidation Reactor.

The main aim of the mathematical model was to investigate the process performance of the reactor by parametric analysis.

Temperature and concentration profiles along the length of the reactor were evaluated in order to enhance optimization and control of the PROX unit.
