  • TITLE: Kinetics Study and Simulation of DME Steam Reforming Reaction

    AUTHORS: Jun Wang, Cong Li

    KEYWORDS: Dimethyl Ether, Numerical Simulation, Hydrogen, Steam Reforming

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Access Library Journal, Vol.4 No.11, November 17, 2017

    ABSTRACT: A CFD (computational fluid dynamics) model has been presented to simulate the steam reforming reaction of DME in this study. A three-dimensional numerical model introduced by the commercial software COMSOL was used to investigate the fluid flow of reformer bed and heating tubes, the energy transport of reformer bed and heating tubes, and the mass transport of reformer bed. The governing equations in the model consist of conservations of mass, momentum, energy and chemical species. In order to optimize the process of reaction, the steam to DME ratio, the inlet temperature, and porosity were investigated. The simulation results showed the changes of temperature distribution, DME conversion and hydrogen production of the steam reforming reaction with different operation conditions.
