Fluidized Bed Reactor | Manufacturer and Suppliers

Share this:
A fluidized bed reactor is a type of reactor or device which is used for carrying out a different type of multiphase chemical reactions. In this process to suspend the solid, a gas or liquid passes through a solid gritty material at higher velocities.

This process is used for solids to behave as, it was a fluid. The name of this process is fluidization, which introduce us with the so many important advantages to the FBR, because of these advantages now it is used in a wide range of industrial applications.

Applications of fluidized bed reactors:

Applications for Fluidized Bed Reactors are divided into three parts which are:
  • Petroleum Applications
  • Petrochemical Applications
  • Other Applications

Petroleum Applications:

The below provided products are either used as fuels or are used in the development of fuels:
  • Aviation Fuel
  • Butane
  • Butylene
  • Cracked Naphtha
  • Diesel Feedstock
  • Fuel Oils from Polyethylene
  • Gasoline from Methanol
  • Gasoline
  • Isobutene
  • Jet Fuel Feedstock
  • Propane
  • Propylene

Petrochemical Applications:

There are numerous other applications of FBR, from Plastics to Rubber.
  • Acetone Recovery
  • Aniline
  • Aniline from Nitrobenzene
  • Coal Gasification
  • Cracking of Methyl cyclohexane
  • Ethanol from Butadiene
  • Hydrogen from Steam
  • Maleic Anhydride
  • Maleic Anhydride from Benzene and Butylene
  • Styrene from Hydrocarbons
  • Vinyl Chloride
  • Vulcanization of Rubber
  • Polyethylene

Other Applications:

The other applications of FBR technology are:
  • Fertilizers from Coal
  • Industrial and Municipal Waste Treatment
  • Oil Decontamination of Sand
  • Radioactive Waste Solidification

Advantages of FBR:

  • Ability to Operate Reactor in Continuous State
  • Allows for continuous, automatically controlled operations.
  • Catalyst is easily replaced or regenerated.
  • Even temperature distribution eliminates hot spots.
  • More efficient contacting of gas and solid than in other catalytic reactors.
  • Uniform Particle Mixing
  • Uniform Temperature Gradients

Disadvantages of FBR:

  • Attrition, break-up of catalyst pellets due to impact against reactor walls, can occur.
  • Can't be used with catalyst solids that won't flow freely.
  • Catalyst may be deactivated.
  • Erosion of Internal Components
  • Erosion of reactor walls may occur.
  • Expensive to construct and maintain.
  • Increased Reactor Vessel Size
  • Lack of Current Understanding
  • Large pressure drop.
  • Particle Entrainment
  • Pressure Loss Scenarios
  • Pumping Requirements and Pressure Drop
  • Regeneration equipment for catalyst is expensive.
