Polymerization in a Semibatch Reactor

As reactant monomer converts into polymer chains, the density of the reacting mixture often changes notably. In this example you will look at how this effect impacts the total production of polymer in a process. The liquid phase polymerization takes place in a semibatch reactor, where two operating conditions are compared. In the first scenario, the feed of monomer to the reactor is turned off ...

Hydrocarbon Dehalogenation in a Tortuous Microreactor

Removing halogen groups from hydrocarbons is an important reaction step in several chemical processes. One application is water purification. Other examples involve organic synthesis, where the removal of halogen groups serves as a starting point for carbon-carbon coupling reactions. Typically, the carbon-halogen bond scission is activated by precious metal catalysts based on platinum or ...

Optimization of a Catalytic Microreactor

In this model, a solution is pumped through a catalytic bed where a solute species reacts as it gets in contact with the catalyst. The purpose of the model is to maximize the total reaction rate for a given total pressure difference across the bed by finding an optimal catalyst distribution. The distribution of the porous catalyst determines the total reaction rate in the bed. A large amount of ...

Carbon Deposition in Heterogeneous Catalysis

Carbon deposition onto the surface of solid catalysts is commonly observed in hydrocarbon processing. Carbon deposits can affect both the activity of catalysts as well as the flow of gas through a catalyst bed. This example investigates the thermal decomposition of methane into hydrogen and solid carbon. In a first model the isothermal process occurring in an ideal reactor, simulated in with ...

A Multiscale 3D Packed Bed Reactor

One of the most common reactors in the chemical industry, for use in heterogeneous catalytic processes, is the packed bed reactor. This type of reactor is used both in synthesis as well as in effluent treatment and catalytic combustion. This particular model is set up to model the concentration distribution in the reactor gas that flows around the pellets, but it also uses an **extra dimension** ...

Porous Media Flow

This model exemplifies the coupling between flow of a gas in an open channel and in a porous catalyst attached to one of the channel walls. The flow is described by the Navier-Stokes equation in the free region, and using the Brinkman equations in the porous region. The coupling of free media flow with porous media flow is very common in the field of chemical engineering. This type of ...

Dissociation in a Tubular Reactor

Tubular reactors are often used in continuous large-scale production, for example in the petroleum industry. One key design and optimization parameter is the conversion, or the amount of reactant that reacts to form the desired product. In order to achieve high conversion, process engineers optimize the reactor design: its length, width and heating system. An accurate reactor model is a very ...

Hydrodealkylation in a Membrane Reactor

This model demonstrates how you can access and include external thermodynamic and physical property calculations in your simulation, using the Thermodynamics feature. The model shows how you can easily modify the predefined Plug-flow reactor type in the Reaction Engineering interface to set up a membrane reactor model. At high temperatures and pressures, and in the presence of hydrogen, ...

Parameter Estimation for Nonideal Reactor Models

Real reactors can be modeled as combinations of ideal reactors. In this example two ideal CSTRs with interchange are used to model a real reactor with one highly agitated region and another region with less agitation. Two parameters, relating the volume and exchange rate of the two regions, need to be found by comparing the model results to experimental tracer data. Using the Parameter Estimation ...

Microchannel Cell

This example was originally formulated by Albert Witarsa under Professor Bruce Finlayson’s supervision at the University of Washington in Seattle. It was part of a graduate course in which the assignment consisted of evaluating the potential of patents in the field of microfluidics through mathematical modeling. The model treats an H-micro cell for separation through diffusion. The cell puts ...
