Chemical absorption in Couette Taylor reactor with micro bubbles generation by rotating porous plate
Author(s): Asem M AL Jarrah
Abstract: In this work the concept of gas-liquid Couette- Taylor Flow reactor with micro bubbles generation by a rotating porous plate have been investigated. The oxidation of benzaldehyde was used in this study. The volumetric mass transfer coefficients KLa have been determined and the influence of the gas and liquid phase mass flow rates and the rotational speed of the inner cylinder on the mass transfer coefficient have been investigated. The obtained mass transfer coefficients in the Couette Taylor reactor with micro bubbles generation by rotating porous plate were found to be approximately twice the value of the mass transfer coefficient for the normal Couette Taylor reactor and two order of magnitude higher than those observed in a stirred tank reactor. The collected experimental data have been correlated and a high values of the mass transfer coefficients, KLa, of the order of 1-2 s-1 have been obtained.
