In this work we address the modeling and numerical simulation of flow and temperature for a mixture of gases in a reactor to optimize the temperature inside it. The study is focused on determining appropriate temperatures at the reactor shell, to assure optimal temperatures at the catalyst support device where the reaction of formation of CNF takes place. Different locations of the support device are considered.
