PSRI’s fluidization seminars are highly recommended for engineers and researchers working with fluidized bed and fluid-particle processes. Course content includes topics such as:
- Basic fluidization hydrodynamics
- Gas distributor design and operation
- Circulating fluidized beds and high-velocity systems
- Cyclone design and operation
- Dilute and dense-phase conveying
- Particle entrainment,
- Erosion and particle attrition
- Standpipes and solids flow systems
- Large scale demonstrations, and more.
PSRI, a CPFD Strategic Partner, is an international consortium of companies focused on the advancement of multiphase flows technology with granular and granular-fluid systems. Since 1971, PSRI has amassed a prolific amount of design data, technology, know-how, design criteria and models on all aspects of slurries, liquid injection, fluidization, entrainment, pneumatic conveying, attrition, erosion, distributor design, standpipes, solids transfer, and circulating fluidized beds. From the data produced, PSRI has developed design correlations, models, procedures, methods and techniques which are among the best and most useful in the field. CPFD has been a member of PSRI since 2006. Learn more.
About CPFD Software
CPFD Software is advancing multiphase simulation and technology. Our flagship product, Barracuda Virtual Reactor®, is a physics-based engineering software package that simulates the three-dimensional, transient, fluid-particle hydrodynamics, heat balance, and chemical reactions in industrial fluidized bed reactors and other fluid-particle systems.
Virtual Reactor™ enables researchers and engineers working with fluid/particle processes to explore abroad range of ideas, reduce physical testing costs, and minimize development risk, all while accelerating commercialization, scale-up, and overall time to market. For clients who already operate industrial units, Virtual Reactor allows engineers to determine the root cause of underperformance, reduce the risk of changes through virtual testing, and optimize solutions, all while maximizing reliability, uptime, and regulatory compliance initiatives
The Virtual Reactor technology can be accessed via software licensing, services, or custom collaborative arrangements
