RTD Studies In Packed Bed Reactor (Peristaltic Pump Feed System)

MODAL NO: MTCRE-114B

QTY


RTD Reactions:

Axial diffusion and dispersion of fluid in packed beds are important for design and operation of separation equipment and Chemicals reactors. The tracer technique, the most widely used method for the study of axial dispersion. In stimulus response experimentation, we perturb the system using pulse input of tracer and then see how the system reacts or responds to this stimulus. 

RTD Reactions:

Axial diffusion and dispersion of fluid in packed beds are important for design and operation of separation equipment and Chemicals reactors. The tracer technique, the most widely used method for the study of axial dispersion. In stimulus response experimentation, we perturb the system using pulse input of tracer and then see how the system reacts or responds to this stimulus. The analysis of the response gives the desired information about the system. The setup consists of a glass column packed with Rasching Rings and one feed tank. Water is fed to the reactor through liquid distributor, fitted at the bottom of the column. Peristaltic Pump is provided to measure the flow of water. For understanding the R.T.D. characteristics, a special arrangement to inject tracer into the lower end of reactor, using a syringe, is provided. Samples can be taken periodically from the top outlet of reactor. 

EXPERIMENTATION:

  • To plot RTD curve for Packed Bed Reactor.
  • To determine the Dispersion No.

UTILITIES REQUIRED :

  • Electricity Supply: Single Phase, 220 V AC, 50 Hz, 5-15 Amp combined socket with earth connection. Earth voltage should be less than 5 volts.
  • Water Supply.
  • Floor Drain.

Instruments, Laboratory Glassware and Chemicals required for analysis as per the system adopted. 

  • Reactor Column : Material Borosilicate Glass capacity 1.2 Ltrs (approx.)
