These two situations have been physically simulated in the present work using nickel pellets from the process, but for safety reasons air has been used in place of the gas mixture of nickel carbonyl and carbon monoxide.
Nickel pellets are produced industrially from nickel carbonyl by a simple chemical reaction (Equation (1)), but physical aspects such as fluid flow and heat transfer must also be considered in the full understanding of the process.
