Jun 30, 2015· to build an extensive database concerning bubble size that will be obtained in different bubble columns up to 1m in diameter. An original method of spatial cross correlation of optical probes signals has been developed to determine mean horizontal bubble diameter. Methodology . In the literature, numerous techniques to measure bubble size can be found.
1. Introduction Bubble column reactors belong to the general class of multiphase reactors which consist of three main categories namely, the trickle bed reactor (fixed or packed bed), fluidized bed reactor, and the bubble column reactor. A bubble column reactor is basically a cylindrical vessel with a gas distributor at the bottom. The gas is sparged in the form of bubbles into either a liquid phase or a liquid–solid .
Slurry bubble column hydrodynamics is very complex and signiﬁcantly inﬂuenced by the size of the column. Hence, it becomes essential to study the inﬂuence of scale on relatively large coldﬂow experimental equipment, in order to predict the hydrodynamic parameters for industrial size bubble column reactors (5–8 m diameter).
Gas Holdup, Slurry Bubble Column, Heat Transfer, Drift Flux Model 1. Introduction Slurry bubble column reactors (SBCR) which have many advantages relative to other types of reactors can be widely used in industry for syngas conversion reactions such as FischerTropsch synthesis and methanol synthe*Corresponding author s.
The model quantitatively describes, with sufficient accuracy, the processes in a bubble column reactor. The paper discusses investigations for designing a pilot plant reactor for hydrogenating 2‐ethylhexanal as an example of its application.
Jan 01, 2002· The major technical objectives of this program are threefold: (1) to develop the design tools and a fundamental understanding of the fluid dynamics of a slurry bubble column reactor to maximize reactor productivity, (2) to develop the mathematical reactor design models and gain an understanding of the hydrodynamic fundamentals under industrially relevant process conditions, and .

Indeed, the current results have implied that assuming all bubbles to be of a spherical shape may lead to significant underestimation of the interfacial area and hence affect the predictions of the heat and mass transfer rate when chemical reactions are considered in the bubble column reactors.
Bubble column reactors (BCR) are widely used in chemical, petrochemical, biochemical, and metallurgical industries. The absence of moving parts, their low operating and maintenance costs and the excellent mass and heat transfer rates explain the large number of applications developed with this kind of reactor against the others (Deckwer, 1992 ; Kantarci et al., 2005 ).

Mass transfer in a bubble column is analyzed in a different perspective. The experiments were performed in a bubble column reactor that was operated in a regime where the overall rate of absorption of gas into liquid was dependent on both the masstransfer coefficient and the rate of reaction.
