is the Swedish technology company behind the Rotating Bed Reactor (RBR). The
RBR technology is used in many fields, such as the chemical, pharmaceutical and
oil and gas industries. Now SpinChem AB is looking into the fundamental science
behind its function and propose two projects for students willing to take on
Designing a model to
describe the RBR
Can the performance
of an RBR be described with a mathematical model? Using computational fluid
dynamics (CFD) and experiments to gather data and validate their work, we offer
the clever student a chance to try their modelling skills on a real case.
the energy consumption of the RBR vary with scale? Can the RBR design be
optimized to reduce the power required to drive it? What is the influence of
the motor speed on the reaction time? Can this dependency, coupled with the
energy draw, be used to find an optimum speed?
