Software module for the simulation of a multizone circulating reactor

A software module for the simulation of the olefin polymerisation in a Multizone Circulating Reactor (MZCR) was developed.

The system is modelled as a series of two interconnected polymerisation zones working with different gas phase compositions. The model takes into account particle and reactor levels, as well as the particle population balance. The outputs of the model include polymer productivity, particle size distribution, molecular weights and polydispersity.

Simulations show that a wide range of product characteristics can be achieved by varying the operation conditions in the reactor.
