Chemical Reactor
MEC performed a detailed process modelling of a proprietary chemical reactor for a petrochemical plant.

The process development for the new reactor has requested a further examinations and confirmations of its fluid-dynamics and heat transfer behaviour. The client awarded MEC for the consultant service for a detailed modeling of the proprietary equipment.

Solution

Our consultants have established a detailed modeling of the chemical reactor:

  • Process design with heat transfer modeling of the molten-salts side and the BFW side;
  • Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis of the reactor with further optimization of its mechanical design
  • Numerical methods for dynamic systems assessment and on-line monitoring of the operations.

Industry 4.0, which combines digital and physical advanced technologies, can potentially transform the chemicals industry, itself the backbone of many end-market industries. Through the dual areas of business operations and growth, these technologies enable “smart” supply chains and factories, as well as create new business models.

MEC is fully involved in promoting Technologies and Industry 4.0 within Energy market.
