Barracuda Virtual Reactor® Simulations of PSRI Cold-Flow FCC Stripper Experiment
Presented by Sam Clark, Senior Project Engineer, CPFD Software LLC
Join us for a free CPFD Software webinar presented by Sam Clark, CPFD Senior Project Engineer.
Mr. Clark will discuss a paper presented earlier this month at the 2017 AIChE Annual Meeting titled “Numerical Simulations of PSRI Cold-Flow FCC Stripper Experiment with Subway Grating Baffles”. This paper was co-authored with Dr. Allan Issangya, PSRI; Dr. Ray Cocco, PSRI; and Mr. Peter Blaser, CPFD Software.
Numerical simulations of a PSRI cold-flow FCC stripper experiment with subway grating baffles were performed using Barracuda 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.
