A 3D reactor model was developed for the reduction of NO by hydrogen over a Pd(1 wt%)/Al 2 O 3 catalyst. The reactor model built in COMSOL Multiphysics CFD software is based on momentum conservation equations corrected by the Brinkman equation for the catalytic bed zone and on mass balance equations which consist of diffusion–convection equations along and across the reactor.

Abstract. In a normally endothermic naphtha reformer reactor, using a fixed bed of particulate catalyst, to determine if catalyst by-passing is occuring, the feed rate to the reactor is decreased, e.g., by such as about 30 percent, to a rate found previously still to produce an endothermic reaction.

Packed bed unit operations are required for many commercial chemical processes. The ability to a priori predict void fraction and pressure drop in a packed bed would significantly improve reactor design as well as allow for optimization around catalyst performance, catalyst design, and the resulting process pressure drop. Traditionally, the packed bed reactor designs are based on a homogeneous ...
