Multi-Phase Design and Scale Up of Bubble Columns

Scale up design of bubble column reactors is still challenging Most relevant is the specific interfacial area for mass transfer but it is difficult to estimate Models to predict the specific interfacial area are rare due to the lack of measuring techniques and simulation tools

Bubble Columns and Air-Lift Bioreactors Animal Cell

Air-lift reactors usually provide better mixing than bubble columns, the operation range is much broader. Hydrodynamic behaviour of these reactors depend to some extend on the geometry as well as on gas flow rate, gas hold up and circulation velocity, with the gas flow rate as the only independently controllable variable.

Lecture 14 Multiphase Flows Applied Computational

The flow in bubble column reactors is typically modeled as being transient. The time step used in the transient calculation needs to be small enough to capture the phenomena of interest and large enough to reduce CPU time. A typical time step would be of the order of 1E-3 times the gas residence time.

Discrete Bubble Modeling of CO2 Absorption in a NaOH

Jun 29, 2015In slurry bubble column reactors, the particles are suspended in the liquid, while in trickle bed they appear as a fixed bed. While the slurry bubble column exhibits excellent mixing and heat transfer, the mass transfer suffers due to the coalescence of bubbles as they rise in the column.
