Abstract

Methanation is an effective way to efficiently utilize product gas generated from the pyrolysis and gasification of organic solid wastes. To deeply study the heat transfer and mass transfer mechanisms in the reactor, a successful three-dimensional comprehensive model has been established. Multiphase flow behavior and heat transfer mechanisms were investigated under reference working conditions. Temperature is determined by the heat release of the reaction and the heat transfer of the gas-solid flow. The maximum temperature can reach 951 K where the catalyst gathers. In the simulation, changes in the gas inlet velocity and catalyst flow rate were made to explore their effects on CO conversion rate and temperature for optimization purposes. As the inlet gas velocity increases from 2.78 to 4.79 m/s, the CO conversion rate decreases from 81.6% to 72.4%. However, more heat is removed from the reactor, and the temperature rise increases from 78.03 to 113.49 K. When the catalyst flow rate is increased from 7.18 to 17.96 kg/(m2 ·s), the mass of the catalyst in the reactor is increased from 0.0019 to 0.0042 kg, and the CO conversion rate is increased from 66.8% to 81.5%. However, this increases the maximum temperature in the reactor from 940.0 to 966.4 K.
