Fluidised Bed Reactor with Pressure Drop

Fluidised bed reactors are multi-phase reactors, where the reactor fluid is passed through the bed of catalyst granules at high velocities for solid suspension resulting in better mass and heat transfers. They have applications in petroleum, polymer and nuclear industries on a large scale.

Fluidised bed reactors are not available at the current CHEMCAD palette. This model calculates pressure drop across the catalyst bed, minimum fluidization velocity, void fraction and bubble size.
