Modeling flow in ceramic catalytic membrane reactor for partial three-phase hydrogenation
Universidade de São Paulo
January 19, 2012
This study focused on the development of a model for the flow in a reactor membrane of the type active contactor, approached through computational fluid dynamics (CFD), using the commercial software ANSYS FLUENT. The model included the entire membrane module, consisted of a tubular membrane and a metal shell. The model reaction studied was the partial hydrogenation of 1,5-cyclooctadiene initiated by the pumping of the reaction mixture, dissolved in n-heptane, through the membrane, from the ends of the tube. The membranes were impregnated with Pd nanoparticles as catalyst. The porous medium was approximated by a granular bed as represented by the Ergun equation, having as parameters the porosity and the grain size of the
