This publication by SABIC provides insights into improving fluidization behavior by way of a systematic approach to determine the underlying root causes of issues in a commercial dehydrogenation reactor.
Downer Fluidized Bed Reactor Modeling For Catalytic Propane Oxidative Dehydrogenation with High Propylene Selectivity
This paper from the University of Western Ontario includes Barracuda Virtual Reactor simulation of the catalytic propane oxidative dehydrogenation (PODH) process in a circulating fluidized bed downer reactor.
Kodam, Freireich, Pretz, and Stears from Dow discuss how Barracuda Virtual Reactor has been used to investigate riser termination device performance for separating catalyst particles from the gas phase.
In this work researchers from SABIC and CPFD investigate the dynamic behavior of a commercial fluidized bed LLDPE reactor and compare with plant data.
