Abstract

Mass Transfer Studies and Optimization of Geometrical Variables for a Down Flow Jet Loop Reactor

Author(s): P. P. Selvi and U. Asha Devi

Studies were carried out in a down flow jet loop bioreactor for air-water and air-additive system. The effects of variables such as operating variable and geometrical variables on the behaviour of a down flow jet loop bioreactor have been studied. In addition, the overall volumetric mass transfer coefficient and the influence of draft tube to column diameter ratio, nozzle diameter, projection depth of the aeration tube from the nozzle and immersion height has been determined.
