Flow in an Airlift Loop Reactor

Application ID: 10356

This example illustrates multiphase flow modeling in an airlift loop reactor. The reactor is filled with water and air bubbles are injected at the bottom through two frits. Due to buoyancy, the bubbles rise, inducing a circulating motion of the liquid. The model specifically investigates the effect of including bubble-induced turbulence.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
