About This Presentation
Sibashis Banerjee of Tronox at the 2022 Barracuda Virtual Reactor Users’ Conference.
This talk will cover the use of modeling to reduce entrainment at Tronox unit operations. In particular, the talk will focus on using modeling with CPFD software to diagnose the cause of high entrainment in the aluminum chloride generator and subsequent rapid iteration on various designs to reduce entrainment by over 75%. This reduction in entrainment increased the availability of the downstream equipment and reduced maintenance costs. The talk will also cover the recent experience at Tronox with the NVIDIA DGX workstation.
