PhD Defence | On the Prediction of Gas Hold-up in Ebullated Bed Reactors, by Amir MowlaExport this event to calendar

Friday, September 6, 2019 — 1:00 PM EDT

You are welcome to attend Amir Mowla's final PhD defence, in which they will discuss their research into the hydrodynamics of commercial ebullated bed reactors through a combination of experimental investigation and CFD modelling. 

Abstract

Commercial ebullated bed reactors (EBRs) are three-phase fluidized bed systems used for hydroprocessing (upgrading) of bitumen, a major Canadian resource. The objective of this thesis is to improve the understanding of the hydrodynamics of the EBRs through a combination of experimental investigation and CFD modelling. The experiments were conducted in a transparent cold-flow pilot scale reactor and were focused on the most important parameter in the design and operation of fluidized bed systems, i.e., the overall (average) gas hold-up.
