%T Simulation Design of Separator for the Treatment of Emulsions
%V 65
%X A prototype model of an emulsion separator was
designed and manufactured. Generally, it is a cylinder filled with
different fractal modules. The emulsion was fed into the reactor by a
peristaltic pump through an inlet placed at the boundary between the
two phases. For hydrodynamic design and sizing of the reactor the
assumptions of the theory of filtration were used and methods to
describe the separation process were developed. Based on this
methodology and using numerical methods and software of Autodesk
the process is simulated in different operating modes. The basic
hydrodynamic characteristics - speed and performance for different
types of fractal systems and decisions to optimize the design of the
reactor were also defined.
