1 SOLUTIONS TO CAPTER 6: FLOW TROUG A PACKED BED OF PARTICLES EXERCISE 6.1: A packed bed of solid particles of density 500 kg/m 3, occupies a depth of 1 m in a vessel of crosssectional area 0.04 m. The mass of solids in the bed is 50 kg and the surfacevolume mean diameter of the particles is 1 mm. A liquid of density 800 kg/m 3 and viscosity 0.00 Pas flows upwards through the bed, which is restrained at its upper surface. (a) Calculate the voidage (volume fraction occupied by voids) of the bed. (b) Calculate the pressure drop across the bed when the volume flow rate of liquid is 1.44 m 3 /h. SOLUTION TO EXERCISE 6.1: (a) Knowing the mass of particles in the bed, the density of the particles and the volume of the bed, the bed voidage may be calculated: mass of bed, M = M = A( 1 ε)ρ p giving voidage, ε = = 0.5 (b) With a liquid flow rate of 1.44 m 3 /h, the superficial liquid velocity through the bed, U is given by: 1.44 U = 3600 A = 0.01 m / s Use the Ergun equation (TextEquation 6.15) to estimate the pressure drop across the bed at this flow rate: μu (1 ε) = 150 ε ρ f U (1 ε) ε 3 With μ = 0.00 Pa.s, ρ f = 800 kg/m 3, = 1 mm and = 1 m, = U U = 6560 Pa Checking the Reynolds number, R e = Uρ f = 8 (TextEquation 6.1). Since the μ( 1 ε) Reynolds number is less than 10, we might estimate the pressure drop using the Carman Kozeny equation (TextEquation 6.16): μu (1 ε) = 180 = 700 Pa. ε 3 Alternatively we could use the laminar part of the Ergun equation, which gives, (Δp) = 6000 Pa.

2 EXERCISE 6.: A packed bed of solids of density 000 kg/m 3 occupies a depth of 0.6m in a cylindrical vessel of inside diameter 0.1m. The mass of solids in the bed is 5kg and the surfacevolume mean diameter of the particles is 300 μm. Water (density 1000 kg/m 3 and viscosity Pas) flows upwards through the bed. a) What is the voidage of the packed bed? b) Calculate the superficial liquid velocity at which the frictional pressure drop across the bed is 4130 Pa. SOLUTION TO EXERCISE 6.: (a) Knowing the mass of particles in the bed, the density of the particles and the volume of the bed, the bed voidage may be calculated: mass of bed, M = A( 1 ε)ρ p 5 giving voidage, ε =1 000 π 4 (0.1) 0.6 = Use the Ergun equation (TextEquation 6.15) to estimate the relationship between pressure drop across the bed and superficial liquid velocity: μu (1 ε) = 150 ε ρ f U (1 ε) ε 3 With μ = Pa.s, ρ f = 1000 kg/m 3, = 300 μm and = 0.6 m, ( Δp) = U U With (Δp) = 4130 Pa, we solve the quadratic for U: U = 1.5 x 103 m/s, i.e. 1.5 mm/s (positive root) EXERCISE 6.3: A gas absorption tower of diameter m contains ceramic Raschig rings randomly packed to a height of 5 m. Air containing a small proportion of sulphur dioxide passes upwards through the absorption tower at a flow rate of 6 m 3 /s. The viscosity and density of the gas may be taken as 1.80 x 105 Pas and 1. kg/m 3 respectively. Details of the packing is given below: Ceramic Raschig rings Surface area per unit volume of packed bed, S B = 190 m /m 3. Voidage of randomly packed bed = 0.71 (a) Calculate the diameter,, of a sphere with the same surfacevolume ratio as the Raschig rings.

3 (b) Calculate the frictional pressure drop across the packing in the tower. (c) Discuss how this pressure drop will vary with flow rate of the gas within ±10% of the quoted flow rate. (d) Discuss how the pressure drop across the packing would vary with gas pressure and temperature. SOLUTION TO EXERCISE 6.3: (a) From TextEquation 6.6: S B = S1 ε ( ), where S surface area per unit volume of rings. Therefore, S = S B ( 1 ε) = 190 ( ) = 655. m /m 3 If is the diameter of a sphere with the same surfacevolume ratio as the rings, π π = m /m 3 ence, = 9.16 mm (b) Superficial gas velocity, U = Q = 6 =1.91 m / s π D π 4 4 Using the Ergun equation (TextEquation 6.15) to describe the relationship between gas velocity and pressure drop across the packed bed, μu (1 ε) = 150 ε ρ f U (1 ε) ε 3 With μ = 1.8 x 105 Pa.s, ρ f = 1. kg/m 3, = 9.16 x 103 m and = 5 m, 5 = (1 0.71) ( ) which gives = = Pa. 3 (1 0.71) (c) We note that the turbulent component makes up 98% of the total. ence, within ±10% of the quoted flow rate the pressure drop across the bed will increase with the square of the superficial velocity and hence with the square of the flow rate: Q SOLUTIONS TO CAPTER 6: FLOW TROUG A PACKED BED OF PARTICLES p. 6.3
4 (d) Variation with gas pressure: Pressure increase affects only the gas density (except at very high pressure which are not relevant here). And gas density is directly proportional to absolute gas pressure (if we assume ideal gas behaviour). Since the flow is predominantly turbulent, then: absolute gas pressure Variation with gas temperature: Since the flow is predominantly turbulent, gas viscosity has almost no affect (see Ergun equation). Therefore, variation in gas temperature will influence only the gas density. Assuming ideal gas behaviour, 1 ρ f absolute temperature, T ence, 1 T EXERCISE 6.4: A solution of density 1100 kg/m 3 and viscosity x 103 Pas is flowing under gravity at a rate of 0.4 kg/s through a bed of catalyst particles. The bed diameter is 0. m and the depth is 0.5 m. The particles are cylindrical, with a diameter of 1 mm and length of mm. They are packed to give a voidage of 0.3. Calculate the depth of liquid above the top of the bed. [int: apply the mechanical energy equation between the bottom of the bed and the surface of the liquid] SOLUTION TO EXERCISE 6.4: Calculate the frictional pressure loss through the bed. 0.4 Superficial liquid velocity, U = 1100 π ( 4 0. ) = m/s Surfacevolume diameter of particles, : Volume of one cylindrical particle = π mm3 Surface area of one cylindrical particle =.5π mm Surfacevolume ratio of particles =.5π π = 5mm /mm 3 For a sphere of diameter, surfacevolume ratio = 6 ence, diameter of sphere which has the same surfacevolume ratio as the particles, = 1. mm SOLUTIONS TO CAPTER 6: FLOW TROUG A PACKED BED OF PARTICLES p. 6.4
5 Checking the Reynolds number (TextEquation 6.1), R e = Uρ f μ( 1 ε) = = 6.5 (1 0.3) The Reynolds number is less than 10 and so we can assume that laminar flow dominates. The Ergun equation (TextEquation 6.15) reduces to: μu (1 ε) = 150 ε 3 With μ = 0.00 Pa.s, ρ f = 1100 kg/m 3, = 1. mm, ε = 0. 3 and = 0.5 m, 0.5 = (1 0.3) ( ) = 640 Pa / m which gives = 1310 Pa. Expressed in terms of head of liquid, friction head loss through the bed, h loss = = 1.16 m Applying the mechanical energy balance between the liquid surface (position 1) and the bottom of the packed bed (position ): (Solution ManualFigure 6.4.1) z 1 + U 1 g + p 1 ρ f g = z + U g + p ρ f g + h loss Assuming that p 1 = p = atmospheric, and that U 1 = U, z 1 z = h loss = 1.16 m The height of the packed bed is 0.5 m and so the depth of liquid above the bed is m ( m). EXERCISE 6.5: In the regeneration of an ion exchange resin, hydrochloric acid of density 100 kg/m 3 and viscosity x 103 Pas flows upwards through a bed of resin particles of density 500 kg/m 3 resting on a porous support in a tube 4 cm in diameter. The particles are spherical, have a diameter 0. mm and form a bed of void fraction 0.5. The bed is 60 cm deep and is unrestrained at its upper surface. Plot the frictional pressure drop across the bed as function of acid flow rate up to a value of 0.1 l/min. SOLUTION TO EXERCISE 6.5: Assuming laminar flow, the Ergun equation (TextEquation 6.15) reduces to: μu (1 ε) = 150 ε 3 SOLUTIONS TO CAPTER 6: FLOW TROUG A PACKED BED OF PARTICLES p. 6.5
6 With μ = 0.00 Pa.s, ε = 0.5, = 0. mm and = 0.6 m, 0.6 = U ( ) (1 0.5) which gives = U Pa. Referring to Chapter 7, the packed bed will fluidize when the buoyant weight of the particles is supported. Using TextEquation 7., the pressure drop at which this occurs is: ( Δp) = ( 1 ε)( ρ ρ ) g 386 Pa. p f = Using the reduced Ergun equation, the superficial liquid velocity at which the packed bed pressure drop is 386 Pa is U = 4.5 x 104 m/s. Checking the Reynolds number (TextEquation 6.1), R e = Uρ f μ 1 ε ( ) = (1 0.5) = 0.10 The Reynolds number is less than 10 and so our assumption that laminar flow dominates is valid. In summary then, the pressure drop increases linearly with liquid flow rate up to a pressure drop of 386 Pa at a superficial liquid velocity of 4.5 x 104 m/s. Beyond this velocity the pressure drop will remain essentially constant with increasing liquid flow rate, since the bed is fluidized (see Chapter 7). EXERCISE 6.6: The reactor of a catalytic reformer contains spherical catalyst particles of diameter 1.46 mm. The packed volume of the reactor is to be 3.4 m 3 and the void fraction is 0.5. The reactor feed is a gas of density 30 kg/m 3 and viscosity x 105 Pas flowing at a rate of 11,30 m 3 /h. The gas properties may be assumed constant. The pressure loss through the reactor is restricted to kpa. Calculate the crosssectional area for flow and the bed depth required. SOLUTION TO EXERCISE 6.6: Using the Ergun equation (TextEquation 6.15) to describe the relationship between gas velocity and pressure drop across the packed bed, μu (1 ε) = 150 ε ρ f U (1 ε) ε 3 With μ =.0 x 105 Pa.s, ρ f = 30 kg/m 3, = 1.46 x 103 m, =68.75 kpa and ε = 0.5, SOLUTIONS TO CAPTER 6: FLOW TROUG A PACKED BED OF PARTICLES p. 6.6
7 = U (1 0.5) ( ) U (1 0.5) which gives = 50666U U Reactor volume, V = A = 3.4 m 3. Gas volumetric flowrate, Q = UA = = m3 /s Substituting gives: = 1.0 Solving, bed depth, = 0.35 m, and so crosssectional area, A = 9.71 m. EXERCISE 6.7: A leaf filter has an area of m and operates at a constant pressure drop of 50 kpa. The following results were obtained during a test with an incompressible cake: Volume of filtrate collected (litre) Time (min) Calculate: (a) the time required to collect 100 litre of filtrate at a constant pressure drop of 400 kpa with the same feed slurry. (b) the time required to wash the resulting filter cake with 500 litre of water (same properties as the filtrate) at a pressure drop of 00 kpa. SOLUTION TO EXERCISE 6.7: For filtration at constant pressure drop we use TextEquation 6.7, which indicates r that if we plot t/v versus V a straight line will have a gradient c φμ A r and an intercept c φμ A Δp ( ) V eq on the t/v axis.

8 From the plot : gradient = 465 s/m 6 intercept = 800 s/m 3 hence, r c φμ A Δp ( ) = 465 and r c φμ A Δp ( ) V eq = 800 which, with A = m and (Δp) = 50 x 10 3 Pa, gives r Pas/m c φμ = and V eq = m 3 Substituting in TextEquation 6.7, t V = Δp ( ) ( 0.5V ) which applies to the filtration of the same slurry in the same filter at any pressure drop. (a) To calculate the time required to pass 100 litre (1. m 3 ) of filtrate at a pressure drop of 400 kpa, we substitute V = 1. m 3 and (Δp) = 400 x 10 3 Pa in the above equation, giving: t = 4763 sec (or 79.4 minutes) (b) During the filtration the cake thickness is continuously increasing and, since the pressure drop is constant, the volume flow rate of filtrate will continuously decrease. The filtration rate is given by TextEquation dv A dt ( Δp) A = r μ( V + )φ c V eq Substituting the volume of filtrate passed at the end of the filtration period (V = 1. m 3 ), r cφμ = Pas/m, V eq = m 3 and (Δp) = 400 x 10 3 Pa, we find dv the filtration rate at the end of the filtration period is dt = m 3 /s SOLUTIONS TO CAPTER 6: FLOW TROUG A PACKED BED OF PARTICLES p. 6.8

According to TextEquation 6.6 the liquid flow rate is directly proportional to the applied pressure drop, and so: flowrate of wash water (at 00 kpa) = = m 3 /s ence, the time needed to pass 0.5 m 3 of wash water at this rate is 746 sec (or 14.3 minutes) EXERCISE 6.8: A laboratory leaf filter has an area of 0.1 m, operates at a constant pressure drop of 400 kpa and produces the following results during a test on filtration of a slurry: Volume of filtrate collected (litre) Time (sec) (a) Calculatethe time required to collect 1.5 m 3 of filtrate during filtration of the same slurry at a constant pressure drop of 300 kpa on a similar fullscale filter with and area of m. (b) Calculate the rate of passage of filtrate at the end of the filtration in part (a). (c) Calculate the time required to wash the resulting filter cake with 0.5 m 3 of water at a constant pressure drop of 00 kpa. Assume the cake is incompressible and that the flow properties of the filtrate are the same as those of the wash solution.) SOLUTION TO EXERCISE 6.8: For filtration at constant pressure drop we use TextEquation 6.7, which indicates r that if we plot t/v versus V a straight line will have a gradient c φμ A r and an intercept c φμ A Δp ( ) V eq on the t/v axis.

(a) To calculate the time required to pass 1.5 m 3 of filtrate through the fullscale filter at a pressure drop of 300 kpa, we substitute V = 1.5 m 3 and (Δp) = 300 x 10 3 Pa in the above equation, giving: t = 9 sec (or 37.1 minutes) (b) During the filtration the cake thickness is continuously increasing and, since the pressure drop is constant, the volume flow rate of filtrate will continuously decrease. The filtration rate is given by TextEquation dv A dt ( Δp) A = r μ( V + )φ c V eq Substituting the volume of filtrate passed at the end of the filtration period (V = 1.5 m 3 ), r cφμ = Pas/m, V eq = m 3 and (Δp) = 300 x 10 3 Pa, we find dv the filtration rate at the end of the filtration period is dt = m 3 /s SOLUTIONS TO CAPTER 6: FLOW TROUG A PACKED BED OF PARTICLES p. 6.10
