Application of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) for investigation of fluid dynamics in trickle bed reactors and of droplet separation kinetics in packed beds
Magnetic Resonance Imaging technique was used to investigate the fluid dynamics of multiphase flow in two different applications: (a) stationary two-phase flow in trickle beds, and (b) time-dependent droplet separation in granular bed filters. The experiments were carried out with different gas/liquid systems at either atmospheric conditions or at elevated pressure and temperature. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional image data were then evaluated to quantify the porosity profiles and gas/liquid distribution in packed beds. The results compare well with data from integral measurements.
