Title: Comparison of Equilibrium-Stage and Rate-Based Models of a Packed Column for Tar Absorption Using Vegetable Oil
Language: English
Abstract:

In this study two mathematical models, rate-based and equilibrium-stage models in Aspen Plus process simulator, were used to simulate the tar absorption processes using soybean oil as a solvent in a research lab-scale experiment. The matching between simulation results and experimental data shows a good agreement. The simulation results predicted by the rate-based model show a higher level of agreement than the equilibrium model compared with the experimental data. Analysis study of tar absorption process was carried out which revealed the effect of temperature and flow rate on the soybean oil, and height-packed bed on tar removal efficiency. The methodology of selecting the optimum (most economical) operation conditions has also been performed in this study
