Abstract de conférence
Résumé : The industrial production of refined sodium bicarbonate is realized in large-scale bubble columns, called the BIR columns. Several complex phenomena exist in these columns, such as three-phase flow, gas-liquid mass transfer of CO2, and crystallization. This work deals with the development of a BIR column model using the compartmental modelling approach. It is fed by previous works and current studies. Some simulations results are presented for typical operating conditions of an industrial column. Moreover, a parametric sensitivity study is realized to identify the more important modelling parameters.
