WALL EFFECT OF A PACKED BED WITH PELLET PARTICLES
Keywords:chlorination, titanium tetrachloride, wall effect, flow distribution, packed bed.
Fluid flow profile is a dominate role in the performance of packed bed reactor. In small ratio of column-to-particle diameter, velocity pattern is strongly affected by voidage distribution, which depends on radial coordinate, flow rate and bed height. In this study, effects of voidage distribution to gas velocity profile in a packed bed with pellet particles was empirically investigated. Uniformity of local velocity at the top of the bed was clearly observed with decreasing of bed height and flow rate. For 400 mm of bed height, the measured velocities are a well fitting to Fahien and Stankovich model for any expected flow rate.
