Advanced Modeling of Reactive Separation Units with Structured Packings

Published Online: 2007-02-27 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2202/1934-2659.1042

Reactive separations combining mass transfer with simultaneous chemical reactions within a single column unit provide an important synergistic effect and bring about several advantages. The influence of column internals in reactive separations increases significantly, because these internals have to enhance both separation and reaction and maintain a sound balance between them. To solve this problem, a novel generation of column internals with enhanced mass transfer performance and low pressure drop has been created. Among them, corrugated packings of the regular type or structured packings have gained a wide acceptance.This paper gives a state-of-the-art review of the structured packings modeling methods, focusing on two innovative and particularly promising approaches. The first of them is based on the application of CFD, whereas the second one employs the idea of hydrodynamic analogy between complex and simple flow patterns. Both approaches are illustrated with several case studies.

Keywords: reactive separations; structured packings; mass transfer; CFD; hydrodynamic analogies
