Multi-scale process modeling is very appealing methodology for process optimization since it highlights certain issues that remain unexplored with conventional methodologies and debottlenecks certain potentialities that remain unexploited in chemical plants. In this work, a kinetic model with 2400 reactions and 140 species is implemented in a proper reactor(More)
In this paper we describe and apply a parallel code, named KPPSMOKE, for the prediction of pollutant emissions from combustion devices operating in turbulent conditions. The approach is based on the kinetic post-processing of CFD simulations, which are transformed into equivalent networks of perfectly stirred reactors and solved using a detailed kinetic(More)
The modeling of thermal reaction furnaces of Sulfur Recovery Units (SRUs) is a rather complex problem since it involves different modeling scales such as the kinetic/molecular scale, the reactor scale, and the chemical process scale. This work introduces the multi-scale modeling approach to characterize the kinetic and reaction engineering scales for the(More)
