Study of na anular photoreactor with tangential inlet and outlet; II. The UV/H2O2 reactive flow

Abstract:

The concentration profiles of species involved in the degradation of phenol by an advanced oxidation process (AOP) are modeled by a computational fluid dynamics tool in an annular reactor whose fluid dynamics was the object of a previous study. The reactive flow was fully described together with the radiation field and the kinetic model, which encompasses large kinetic constants such as 1010 L mol–1s–1. Phenol degradation can be simulated by using relaxation factors of at least 1012 kgm–3s–1. The hydroxyl radical concentration profile depends on the radiation field, assessed by the discrete ordinate and the discrete transfer methods. Phenol can be completely degraded along the reactor. A centrifugal effect was observed, with higher concentrations of degradation products along the inner wall at the reactor outlet.
