In addition, the solutions offered can handle both loop and plug flow reactor models.
He defended increase in property valuation rates, saying the purpose was to regulate the real estate market, plug flow of money into speculative investment and divert it towards the industry.
And, with plug flow reactors, the overall heat generation will change significantly over the length of the reactor vessel.
* Guaranteed robustness: high resistance to vibration, temperature shocks, plug flow water hammer and condensation-induced water hammer.
In Figure 17(a), the time lag between the two signals for slug flow is 0.009 s, so the bubble velocity in the plug flow was 0.333 m/s according to (7).
Early gas turbine combustors were modeled by [30] in the 1950s as an arrangement of a perfectly stirred reactor (PSR) for the high-intensity primary zone of the combustor, followed by a plug flow reactor (PFR) for the burnout zone of the combustor.
However, near and inside the 90[degrees] connectors and the union segments, the velocity field presents low- and high-velocity zones due to the inherent CPC geometry, showing that the CPC cannot be considered as an ideal plug flow reactor.
A numerical and experimental study of the mixing of pulsed propane into a main reactor flow has been performed; an approach has been postulated to obtain near ideal plug flow pulses which are well mixed laterally and well-separated axially.
The dispersion model is based on the ideal plug flow and accounts for the deviations from the ideal flow that is caused by backmixing or random fluctuations.
where [[tau].sub.0], [[tau].sub.rz], [alpha], k , [u.sub.B], Q, [[mu].sub.0], [u.sub.av], [v.sub.z], p and [R.sub.p] are the yield stress, Shear stress, slip parameter, permeability, slip velocity, Darcy velocity, coefficient of viscosity at the interface r = 0, average velocity, velocity component in z-direction, pressure and radius of the plug flow region.
The cyclic vacuum plug flow conveying arrangement avoids product separation or segregation, and systems are certified as explosion proof by ATEX, requiring no additional equipment.
