We focus on a catalytic process based on direct injection method that can produce high-quality oils of gasoline and kerosene with various carbon-number feed oils. The reaction characteristics of a commercial catalyst were analyzed using a spouted bed reactor. Decane and pentadecane were used to compare the characteristics of the fixed bed and the spouted bed reactor. The yield of gasoline plus kerosene was highest at the reaction temperature of 550 °C. For the spouted bed reactor, the at-a-pulse injection was more effective for catalytic cracking of feed oils than multiple consecutive injections. The reaction activity became higher as the carbon number of feed oil is larger.
