Application of high resolution gamma ray tomography to the measurement of gas hold-up distributions in a stirred chemical reactor

Hampel, U.; Hristov, H. V.; Bieberle, A.; Zippe, C.


We employed high resolution gamma ray tomography to measure radial and axial phase distributions in a laboratory type chemical reactor with a gas inducing turbine stirrer. Therefore, we used a recently developed gamma ray CT system which is operated with a Cs-137 source and a detector that achieves approximately 2 mm spatial resolution. The measured data has been compared to computational fluid dynamics predictions obtained with CFX 10.0.
