Numerical simulations of a PSRI cold-flow FCC stripper experiment with subway grating baffles were performed using Virtual Reactor™. Simulation results were compared with experimental measurements found in PSRI's Research Report No. 88 (Issangya et al, 2014) of apparent bed density over a wide range of solids flux conditions, at superficial gas velocities typical of industrial FCC stripper operation.
The Virtual Reactor™ simulation results were in good agreement with the experimental bed density measurements, and matched the experimentally observed trends of bed density variation as a function of gas superficial velocity and catalyst mass flux through the stripper vessel.
