Description The mathematical modeling of a three-phase reactor with dispersed phase catalyst for production of methyl oleate was carried out. Mass balances were used at the reactor level as well as the fluid-catalyst interphase to represent the operation system. The effect of type, particle size and catalyst concentration, as well as space-time and arrangement of reactors in series were examined. The purity of the triglyceride in the feeding was also investigated. The factors that most affected the reactor behavior quantitatively were the concentration of the catalyst, and its type, as well as the series arrangement of two reactors at constant space-time. 
Se realizó la modelación matemática de un reactor trifásico con catalizador en fase dispersa para la producción de metil oleato. Se utilizaron balances de materia a nivel reactor, así como entre fase fluida-catalizador para representar la operación del sistema. Se investigó el efecto del tipo, tamaño de partícula y concentración del catalizador, así como espacio-tiempo y arreglo de reactores en serie. Asimismo, se investigó sobre la pureza del triglicérido en la alimentación. Los factores que más afectaron cuantitativamente el desempeño del reactor fueron la concentración del catalizador, su tipo y el arreglo en serie de dos reactores a espacio-tiempo constante.
