CFD Simulation of a Full-Scale Commercial FCC Regenerator (Full)

About This Video

A model of a full-scale fluidized catalytic cracking (FCC) regenerator using the Eulerian-Lagrangian CPFD method in Barracuda VR.  This video illustrates the use of the Barracuda Virtual Reactor to predict the 100°F afterburn observed at the refinery.  A multi-model approach is used to rule out the lift riser and spent catalyst distributor as the root cause of the asymmetric afterburn.
