Slurry Bubble Column Reactor
General features: The particles are suspended in a mechanically
stirred liquid and also by the uprising gas bubbles. The reaction involves
complex mass transfer from the gas bubbles to liquid medium, and finally
to the catalytic particles.
Reaction phases : Liquid and gas
Operation : Batch
Particle size and shape : Size of < 200 micron is used for good
suspension. Particles must be attrition resistant.
Heat of reaction : Excessive heat of reaction is absorbed through
liquid medium and exchanged by external cooling jacket. The catalyst suspension
may be circulated for better heat removal.
