With BatchReactor

The examples presented below are designed to illustrate the use of BatchReactor

Simulation of a pressure increase scenario in a 2-phase reactor

This example presents a simple case of pressure increase of a tank, followed by a depressurization after the rupture disc breaks out. The characteristics of the flow at the vent and the evolution of the tank load are followed over time.

Reactor with Heterogeneous catalytic reactions

The main interest of this example is the simulation of a set of three heterogeneous catalytic reactions. These reactions follow the Langmuir-Hinshelwood formalism.

Single-phase reactor with heating/cooling device - risk analysis

This example shows the modelling of a monophasic reactor for which the heating device is described. Another interest is to set two stop events for a same step. This example also allows to simulate a failure case on the reactor.

Scale-up of a chlorination reactor

The main interest of this example is the scale-up a chlorination reactor. The chlorination of o-chlorotoluene is performed in a vapor-liquid reactor. The heating/cooling device of the reactor and the condenser geometry are specified. During the reaction step, the temperature level in the reactor is controlled with a PID.

Identification of the reaction scheme of the thymol synthesis

This example presents the use of experimental concentration data to identify the kinetic parameters of a reaction scheme. The reactions taken into account are controlled by kinetics. At the end of the identification, a reactive calculator is generated. This way, the components, the thermodynamic model and the chemical reactions can be easily loaded in BatchReactor and BatchColumn simulations.

Synthesis reactor of Thymol

The main interest of this example is to use a reactive calculator generated by Simulis Kinetics after the identification of the reaction scheme of the thymol synthesis. Consequently, the components, the thermodynamic model and the chemical reactions are automatically provided in the BatchReactor simulation. The cooling device of the reactor is specified.

Simulation of batch gluconic acid production with user defined kinetics

The main interest of this simple example is to show how user can very simply describe his own kinetics models using the advanced mode available in Simulis Reactions, the chemical reactions server used in BatchReactor software.
This white biotechnology example deals with the fermentation of glucose to gluconic acid, which involves the oxidation of the aldehyde group of the sugar to a carboxyl group.

Simulation of batch starch enzymatic hydrolysis with user defined kinetics

The main interest of this example is to show how user can very simply describe his own kinetics models using the advanced mode available in Simulis Reactions, the chemical reactions server used in BatchReactor software.
This food processing example deals with the enzymatic hydrolysis of starch to form fermentable carbohydrates (glucose, maltose and maltotriose) in beer production.

Simulation of batch tomato sauce oxydation

The main interest of this example is to show how user can very simply describe his own kinetics models using the advanced mode available in Simulis Reactions, the chemical reactions server used in BatchReactor software.
This food processing example deals with reactions that some components of the tomato sauce, such as ascorbic acid, chlorogenic acid and β-carotene, suffer during the production of this product.

Simulation of batch poly-B-hydroxybutyric acid (PHB) production with user defined kinetics

The main interest of this example is to show how user  can describe  his own kinetics models using the advanced mode available in Simulis Reactions, the chemical reactions server used in BatchReactor software.
