Water Purification Reactor

Application ID: 14049

Water treatment basins are used in industrial-scale processes in order to remove bacteria or other contaminants, such as for making water safe to drink.

The Water Treatment Basin application exemplifies the use of apps for modeling turbulent flow and material balances subject to chemical reactions. You can specify the dimensions and orientation of the basin, mixing baffles, and inlet and outlet channels. You can also set the inlet velocity, species concentration, and reaction rate constant in the first-order reaction.

The app solves for the turbulent flow through the basin and presents the resulting flow and concentration fields as well as the space-time, half-life, and pressure drop.

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