Used for single reactions where the user specifies the reaction stoichiometric coefficients, a key component, and a fractional conversion. The reactor module computes the outlet composition and heat duty or temperature rise. However, the team does not possess either the knowledge or skill to modify the kinetic reactor in ChemCad to simulate this scenario. The team is also in the process of designing a fluidized bed reactor; For the catalytic cracking of petroleum naphthas to form gasoline blends, as an example, the virtues of the fluidized-bed reactor drove its competitors from the market.
I have also done work on ANSYS and modeled a Circulating Fluidized Bed Reactor. A fluidized bed reactor (FBR) is a type of reactor device that can be used to carry out a variety of multiphase chemical reactions. In this type of reactor, a fluid (gas or liquid) is passed through a solid granular material (usually a catalyst possibly shaped as tiny spheres) at high enough velocities to suspend the solid and cause it to behave as though it were a fluid. Hints on using Chemcad for this project are given in Appendix 1. In addition to considering a packed bed reactor, you should investigate the use of a fluidized bed reactor. Design information for fluidized beds is given in Appendix 3.
