Model of a Formaldehyde Absorption System Based on Industrial Data(Book Chapter)

Computer Aided Chemical Engineering


This work focused on the simulation of an industrial system of formaldehyde absorption columns. For this purpose, a rate-based stage model of the system subjected to study was developed in gPROMS® Modelbuilder 4.2.0 and the simulation results compared with the operational values. The results are mainly in accordance with the plant data. The columns temperature and composition profiles generated by the model will be validated in future work. © 2018 Elsevier B.V.
