Hydrodynamics of Trickle Bed Reactor Apparatus
Air from a regulated pressure vessel passes through a sparker and allowed to enter in the column at the top.
Solenoid valves are provided in the feed line at the top of the column for instant release and close.
The set-up consists of a glass column.
The liquid is feed from a tank, fitted with a pump and is distributed at the top of a column using a spray nozzle.
The arrangement is made for changing the glass column conveniently and filling it with any type of packing required.
The flow rate can be adjusted by operating the valves provided in the respective line.
The set-up is fully accompanied by manometers required.
To determine Hydrodynamics of a Trickle Bed Reactor involving the measurement of pressure drop, hold-up, and flow regime.
