Question is ⇒ According to the film theory of mass transfer, the mass transfer co-efficient is proportional to (where, D = molecular diffusivity), Options are ⇒ (A) D , (B) D 2 , (C) D 0.5 , (D) 1/ D , (E) , Leave your comments or Download question paper. In such a case, the reaction is slow and takes place entirely in the liquid phase. Therefore, the mass transfer was extremely inten- ... could be simulated in wetted wall column by two-film theory. In such a case, tanhM→M and Eqs. Two-resistance theory defines the mass transfer in each phase as a function of the concentration driving force and the individual mass transfer coefficient based on the following equations previously mentioned: (1) (2) Overall mass transfer coefficients defined by: (5) (6) And related to the individual coefficients by the relations: (10) (11) Also, assume quasi-steady state, identical ambient conditions, and negligible heat effects. Thus, the effects of interfacial resistance could not have been significant. The inflow and outflow volumetric flow rates are given by V.in and V.out, while vi,l are the coefficients of the stoichiometric matrix and rl is the reaction rate for the reaction l. The interested reader is referred to the literature for the kinetic model (Hentschel et al., 2015). (5.3a), (5.3b) should be completed with a third equation that describes the mass transfer through the membrane (assuming gas in the pores): The equilibrium at the gas-liquid interface is given by cAi = HApAm. The film theory as described above is applied extensively in analysis of mass transfer, although it is a greatly simplified representation. They are related by the Henry's law since it is considered that they are in equilibrium: cAi = HApAi. (6) who absorbed pure carbon dioxide into water. In the first theory it was assumed that all the surfaces were of equal length, and in the second that there was a random distribution of surface lengths up to a maximum. However, in bioprocesses which use hydrocarbons as substrates, the hydrocarbon concentration may well be at a concentration high enough to result in a KLa depression that eclipses the effect of increased oxygen solubility on the OTR. Thus. A higher concentration difference and larger interfacial area are favored to generate higher rate of solute transfer. The film theory is based on the idea that a fluid film or mass transfer boundary layer forms wherever there is contact between two phases. Hansen E(1), Mollerup J. Temperature also affects the oxygen solubility with a decrease in temperature resulting in an improvement. Substituting the Henry's law relationship in Eq. The transport of mass within a single phase depends directly on the concentration gradient of the transporting species in that phase. L12: Mass transfer coefficients in turbulent flow - Film theory. In a drop with stable natural circulation the rate was found to approach 2.5 times the rate for molecular diffusion. where α=1/aδL, the volume ratio of bulk liquid and liquid film. (9.15) and (9.18), β and η are both functions of α and M. In what follows, we will discuss a few specific cases, M≫1 for a very large value of reaction rate constant k. The property of the hypertangent leads to tanhM→1 for M>3. gas) –FILM –bulk fluid (e.g. Absorption of gases and vapour by drops has been studied by Garner and Kendrick(15) and Garner and Lane(16) who developed a vertical wind tunnel in which drops could be suspended for considerable periods of time in the rising gas stream. (9.7) to Eq. (5.3b) to eliminate cAi, and introducing the resulting expression in Eq. In such a case, increasing the reaction temperature (to increase k and DAL) and reducing the resistance in liquid film will benefit the overall rate but increasing the liquid turbulence and reducing the thickness of liquid film will not have much effect on the overall rate. The experimental results and conclusions are reported by Danckwerts, Kennedy, and Roberts(10) who showed that they could be used, on the basis of the penetration theory model, to predict the performance of a packed column to within about 10 per cent. Learn more. In the ST, the term Ds represents KL and the OTR is governed by the same final equation as for the TFT (Equation 8.4). This approach is more appropriate in a well‐mixed vessel, where eddy currents continually expose fresh liquid surfaces to the oxygen and a steady state concentration gradient in a stagnant film at the interface is less likely. In very short columns, however, the rate was overestimated because of the formation of a region in which the surface was stagnant over the bottom one centimetre length of column. On the other hand, when the reaction is used to produce a desired product, the reaction rate in the liquid phase and conversion of the reactant as well as the impact of interphase mass transfer on the reaction rate will be the major concerns. The concentration of A in the bulk aqueous phase is CA1; the concentration of A in the bulk organic phase is CA2. oxygen solubility) and δ is the thickness of the stagnant film. The aqueous MDEA flow was gravity flow on wetted wall. The mass transfer coefficients, k g and k y are related according to the relation. (9.19), we get the rate of absorption, Reinaldo Hernández, Sebastian Engell, in Computer Aided Chemical Engineering, 2016. The film theory has been extensively applied to describe the mass transfer in systems in which fluid phases are present. Describe the basic concept of the two-film theory! Shareable Link. Even though the bulk liquids in Figure 10.2 may be well mixed, diffusion of component A is crucial for mass transfer because the local fluid velocities approach zero at the interface. Consequently, Eq. h�bbd``b`�! (9.10), we get. Zhiwu Liang, ... Paitoon Tontiwatchwuthikul, in Proceedings of the 3rd Gas Processing Symposium, 2012. Mass transfer describes the transport of mass from one point to another and is one of the main pillars in the subject of Transport Phenomena. The TFT has by far been the most commonly used and is well documented in biotechnology texts dealing with oxygen transfer. (9.8), we get. There are other models of mass transfer in fluids that lead to more realistic mathematical outcomes than the film theory [1, 4]. Use the link below to share a full-text version of this article with your friends and colleagues. Experimental results were in good agreement with the second theory. The equation of overall mass By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. When B is in excess, its concentration inside the film can be considered constant, thus, k2cB is constant. This expression for OTR predicts that the rate can be enhanced by increasing the KLa and/or the oxygen solubility. At the interface, phase equilibrium is assumed. Mass transfer occurs in many processes, such as absorption, evaporation, drying, precipitation, membrane filtration, and distillation. The heat transfer correlation can be used to calculate mass transfer and confirm that the performances of heat transfer and mass transfer are almost in the same order of magnitude. L� � Author information: (1)Department of Chemical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, Denmark. There are several models to describe the gas–liquid reactions, including the so-called “two-film theory” and “surface renewal theory.” When applied to practical problems the two models give similar results. Pauline M. Doran, in Bioprocess Engineering Principles (Second Edition), 2013. Learn more. Most of the resistance to mass transfer resides in the liquid films rather than in the bulk liquid. However, although not done routinely, measurement of the interfacial area per unit volume has been carried out very successfully by means of high-speed photography and image analysis. 5.3C, Eqs. There have been many recent studies of the mechanism of mass transfer in a gas absorption system. The mass transfer in extraction process is presumed to be occurred through the two films (two-film theory) with concentration gradients in both films and equilibrium at the interface [29]. The instantaneous molar flux per unit area (Equation 8.6) is combined with an age distribution function, written in terms of the fraction of liquid elements replaced at the interface during each time step, or the fractional rate of surface renewal, s (Equation 8.9). Plate 8.1. cAi and pAi are the concentration of the component A at the interface, in the liquid and gas side, respectively. A number of models to predict OTR have been developed, three of which have been the most widely documented, namely the Two Film Theory (TFT), the Penetration Theory (PT) and the Surface Renewal Theory (SRT). Copyright © 2021 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. Based on the definition of hyperbolic functions, the above equation can be rewritten as. 9.1. 5.3A for a gas-liquid interface where the component in fluid A diffuses into fluid B. However, this is not the case; short contact times will occur in regions of high turbulence and longer contact times in regions of lesser turbulence. To this end the mass transfer models like the film theory, the penetration theory, the surface renewal theory and the boundary layer theory were presented leading to the definition of mass transfer coefficient in one phase. One group produces a desired product using the gas–liquid reaction, and examples include producing nitric acid from water and NO2 and producing acetaldehyde by oxidizing ethylene in an aqueous solution of palladium chloride. The rate of the reaction can be written as, Treating the reaction as pseudo first order, the apparent rate constant. endstream endobj 117 0 obj <> endobj 118 0 obj <> endobj 119 0 obj <>stream (9.1) takes the same form as the diffusion–reaction equation on a thin-slab catalyst. These measurements are particularly useful in determining the impact of the interfacial transfer area per unit volume on the OTR. Thus a solubility relationship like Henry's law for gas-liquid systems (HA = cA/pA), or a partition coefficient for liquid-liquid systems (P = cA/cA′), can be considered. In summary, gas–liquid reactions have different characteristics, depending on the relative magnitude of the rates of chemical reaction and mass transfer. Assume that the phases are two immiscible liquids such as water and chloroform, and that A is initially at higher concentration in the aqueous phase than in the organic phase. The studies were extended to columns containing spheres and again the penetration theory was found to hold, there being very little mixing of the surface layers with the bulk of the fluid as it flowed from one layer of spheres to the next. However, in a practical lipid extraction process, one phase is usually dispersed as droplets in the other phase so that mass transfer occurs (Fig. As the concentration of B is constant, we do not have to solve Eq. In an attempt to test the surface renewal theory of gas absorption, Danckwerts and Kennedy(8) measured the transient rate of absorption of carbon dioxide into various solutions by means of a rotating drum which carried a film of liquid through the gas. 9. In what follows, we will solve the equations for a pseudo first order reaction and discuss the implications of the results. Considering steady-state mass transfer of A from a gas, across the gas-liquid interface, and into a liquid, the mass transfer can be written in the same way as Eq. Consequently, the assumption of identical contact times limits the PT and suggests that a theory incorporating variable contact times would be more appropriate. The theory considers that the resistance to mass transfer in a given turbulent fluid phase is present in a thin layer adjacent to the interface that is called a film (Seader et al., 2011). @��ĭL��K$��n��3��A\F�Ƅ� i� Differentiating Eq. According to the film theory, turbulence in each fluid dies out at the phase boundary. 81 lessons • 11h 9m . In the case where the reaction rate in bulk liquid is comparable with the mass transfer (i.e., αM>1), any means that enhance mass transfer will increase the overall reaction rate. The difference between CA1i and CA2i at the interface accounts for the possibility that, at equilibrium, A may be more soluble in one phase than in the other. (9.19) depends only on k, DAL, and cAi. The basic theory used in the Standard is the well-known “Two-film Theory” from Lewis and Whitman (1924), which states that transfer rate can be expressed in terms of an overall transfer coefficient and resistances on either side of the interface. Based on the definition of α and M. therefore, αM represents the relative magnitude of the reaction rate in the liquid phase and the mass transfer rate through the liquid film. Thus, in an aqueous medium, during its transfer from inside the gas bubble to the site of respiratory oxidation in the microorganism, the oxygen molecule will theoretically meet with resistance to transfer within the stagnant films in the gas and liquid phases at the gas–liquid interface and in the liquid phase around the cell (Figure 8.1). The analytical solution reveals that the film thickness at the top position of the tube at θ = 0 is, which corresponds to the local heat transfer coefficient of, The condensate mass flow rate per unit tube length at the bottom of the tube at θ = π can be obtained as, The Reynolds number at the tube bottom is, The mean heat transfer coefficient can be easily obtained as, We can also express Eq. To overcome this, the molar flux has traditionally been measured in terms of a molar flux per unit volume (N). Nernst postulated that near the interface there exists a stagnant film. In the presence of the additives, however, the process was accelerated as the result of chemical reaction. For the j gas components (j = CO and H2), the concentration in the liquid phase depends on the mass transfer coefficient (keff) and the equilibrium concentration at the interface (Ceq): The GL equilibrium is modelled by means of Henry’s law (3), which describes the relation between the liquid concentrations to the partial pressure Pj. Photo: W. Burger, Plate 8.2. Film resistance to mass transfer between two immiscible liquids. A wide range of system parameters affect KLa, some influencing the resistance, and hence KL, some influencing the transfer area directly and yet others impacting on both. designing the mass transfer equipment is the estimation of the mass flux at the interface. Eq. As with the TFT, the molar flux per unit area is combined with the interfacial area per unit volume to give the molar flux per unit volume (Equation 8.8). Photo: W. Burger. The surface activity forming particles of various molecules typically displays varying degree of surface polarity, triggering them to concentrate at the phase interface, which in turn affects the mass transfer process [31]. For a process with a slow reaction rate, the reaction takes place primarily in the bulk liquid and, therefore, reactors with large liquid retention are favorable. 116 0 obj <> endobj Solving Eqs. Molecular diffusion occurs through the film of thickness δ with a driving force cAi − cAb, where cAb is the bulk average concentration of A in the receiving fluid phase in Fig. Two film theory  Theory has been developed by Nernst, Lewis and Whitman. Formulation: • One-dimensional continuity and species at  Postulates that two non-turbulent fictitious films are present on either side of the interface between thw film  Mass transfer across these films purely occurs molecular diffusion. • Gradients in the boundary-tangential direction are negligible compared to boundary-normal gradients. After the initial turbulence had subsided, the mass transfer rate approached the rate for molecular diffusion provided that the circulation had stopped completely. An approximate analytical equation is derived for predicting the enhancement of mass transfer by decomposition and ozanation reactions, Environmental Progress, 10.1002/ep.670010312, 1, 3, (189-195), (2006). M≪1 for a very small k value. For example, M=0.05, α=1000, and αM=50, thus, β=0.98 and η=0.0196. [31]; the surface tension and overall mass transfer coefficient were decreased with the increment of biomass concentration in an extraction process. Gas absorption operation involves mass transfer from the gas phase to the liquid phase. Two Film Resistance Theory or interphase mass transfer has described mechanisms of steady-state mass transfer between two phases. Since kLcAi corresponds to the rate of absorption for physical absorption, the existence of chemical reaction enhances the rate of mass transfer by a factor of β. (9.1) results in. Mass transfer of solute from one phase to another involves transport from the bulk of one phase to the phase boundary or interface, then movement from the interface into the bulk of the second phase. Why? Shaofen Li, in Reaction Engineering, 2017. This makes the gas–liquid reactions different from the gas–solid reactions discussed in the previous chapter. Although the result was derived on the basis of M≪1, αM also depends on the magnitude of α. Consequently, αM can be much larger or smaller than 1, depending on α. Nevertheless all these models present the identical expression for OTR in terms of KLa and the driving force (Equation 8.4) and it is this equation which is used universally to predict and measure OTR in biological systems and which results in KLa being cited as the key parameter in the design and scale up of fermentation equipment for aerobic processes. (9.5) gives. Many of these have been directed towards investigating whether there is a significant resistance to mass transfer at the interface itself. Formulation - Film Theory Concepts: • Mass transfer occurs in a thin "film" or boundary layer. At a distance Z from the interface inside the film, balancing the mass of reactant A within an infinitesimal volume of dZ with a cross-section of unit area, we get. Substituting Eq. �= (9.17) gives. Two film theory is only a simplification of the mass transport directly at the interface, in which we assume there are two boundary layers on each side of the interface in which the concentration gradient is constant, giving us linear concentration profiles, and the concentration directly at the interface is determined by Henrys Law. On the basis of Eqs. The presence of surface-active agents appeared to cause an interfacial resistance, although this effect is probably attributable to a modification of the hydrodynamic pattern. The TFT is based on the assumption that a stagnant film will form on either side of any phase interface, that all resistance to oxygen transfer resides within the stagnant films and that transfer of oxygen through these stagnant films takes place by molecular diffusion only. For reactions with a high reaction rate, the reaction is essentially completed within the liquid film. where G is inert gas flow rate (kgmol/m2-hr), P is total system pressure (kPa), yA,G is mole fraction of solute A in the bulk gas-phase (mol/mol), y*A is mole fraction of solute A in equilibrium with CA,L(mol/mol), YA is mole ratio of A in the bulk gas-phase (mol/mol), and Z is height (m).

In such a case, the reaction is slow and takes place entirely in the liquid phase. Therefore, the mass transfer was extremely inten- ... could be simulated in wetted wall column by two-film theory. In such a case, tanhM→M and Eqs. Two-resistance theory defines the mass transfer in each phase as a function of the concentration driving force and the individual mass transfer coefficient based on the following equations previously mentioned: (1) (2) Overall mass transfer coefficients defined by: (5) (6) And related to the individual coefficients by the relations: (10) (11) Also, assume quasi-steady state, identical ambient conditions, and negligible heat effects. Thus, the effects of interfacial resistance could not have been significant. The inflow and outflow volumetric flow rates are given by V.in and V.out, while vi,l are the coefficients of the stoichiometric matrix and rl is the reaction rate for the reaction l. The interested reader is referred to the literature for the kinetic model (Hentschel et al., 2015). (5.3a), (5.3b) should be completed with a third equation that describes the mass transfer through the membrane (assuming gas in the pores): The equilibrium at the gas-liquid interface is given by cAi = HApAm. The film theory as described above is applied extensively in analysis of mass transfer, although it is a greatly simplified representation. They are related by the Henry's law since it is considered that they are in equilibrium: cAi = HApAi. (6) who absorbed pure carbon dioxide into water. In the first theory it was assumed that all the surfaces were of equal length, and in the second that there was a random distribution of surface lengths up to a maximum. However, in bioprocesses which use hydrocarbons as substrates, the hydrocarbon concentration may well be at a concentration high enough to result in a KLa depression that eclipses the effect of increased oxygen solubility on the OTR. Thus. A higher concentration difference and larger interfacial area are favored to generate higher rate of solute transfer. The film theory is based on the idea that a fluid film or mass transfer boundary layer forms wherever there is contact between two phases. Hansen E(1), Mollerup J. Temperature also affects the oxygen solubility with a decrease in temperature resulting in an improvement. Substituting the Henry's law relationship in Eq. The transport of mass within a single phase depends directly on the concentration gradient of the transporting species in that phase. L12: Mass transfer coefficients in turbulent flow - Film theory. In a drop with stable natural circulation the rate was found to approach 2.5 times the rate for molecular diffusion. where α=1/aδL, the volume ratio of bulk liquid and liquid film. (9.15) and (9.18), β and η are both functions of α and M. In what follows, we will discuss a few specific cases, M≫1 for a very large value of reaction rate constant k. The property of the hypertangent leads to tanhM→1 for M>3. gas) –FILM –bulk fluid (e.g. Absorption of gases and vapour by drops has been studied by Garner and Kendrick(15) and Garner and Lane(16) who developed a vertical wind tunnel in which drops could be suspended for considerable periods of time in the rising gas stream. (9.7) to Eq. (5.3b) to eliminate cAi, and introducing the resulting expression in Eq. In such a case, increasing the reaction temperature (to increase k and DAL) and reducing the resistance in liquid film will benefit the overall rate but increasing the liquid turbulence and reducing the thickness of liquid film will not have much effect on the overall rate. The experimental results and conclusions are reported by Danckwerts, Kennedy, and Roberts(10) who showed that they could be used, on the basis of the penetration theory model, to predict the performance of a packed column to within about 10 per cent. Learn more. In the ST, the term Ds represents KL and the OTR is governed by the same final equation as for the TFT (Equation 8.4). This approach is more appropriate in a well‐mixed vessel, where eddy currents continually expose fresh liquid surfaces to the oxygen and a steady state concentration gradient in a stagnant film at the interface is less likely. In very short columns, however, the rate was overestimated because of the formation of a region in which the surface was stagnant over the bottom one centimetre length of column. On the other hand, when the reaction is used to produce a desired product, the reaction rate in the liquid phase and conversion of the reactant as well as the impact of interphase mass transfer on the reaction rate will be the major concerns. The concentration of A in the bulk aqueous phase is CA1; the concentration of A in the bulk organic phase is CA2. oxygen solubility) and δ is the thickness of the stagnant film. The aqueous MDEA flow was gravity flow on wetted wall. The mass transfer coefficients, k g and k y are related according to the relation. (9.19), we get the rate of absorption, Reinaldo Hernández, Sebastian Engell, in Computer Aided Chemical Engineering, 2016. The film theory has been extensively applied to describe the mass transfer in systems in which fluid phases are present. Describe the basic concept of the two-film theory! Shareable Link. Even though the bulk liquids in Figure 10.2 may be well mixed, diffusion of component A is crucial for mass transfer because the local fluid velocities approach zero at the interface. Consequently, Eq. h�bbd``b`�! (9.10), we get. Zhiwu Liang, ... Paitoon Tontiwatchwuthikul, in Proceedings of the 3rd Gas Processing Symposium, 2012. Mass transfer describes the transport of mass from one point to another and is one of the main pillars in the subject of Transport Phenomena. The TFT has by far been the most commonly used and is well documented in biotechnology texts dealing with oxygen transfer. (9.8), we get. There are other models of mass transfer in fluids that lead to more realistic mathematical outcomes than the film theory [1, 4]. Use the link below to share a full-text version of this article with your friends and colleagues. Experimental results were in good agreement with the second theory. The equation of overall mass By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. When B is in excess, its concentration inside the film can be considered constant, thus, k2cB is constant. This expression for OTR predicts that the rate can be enhanced by increasing the KLa and/or the oxygen solubility. At the interface, phase equilibrium is assumed. Mass transfer occurs in many processes, such as absorption, evaporation, drying, precipitation, membrane filtration, and distillation. The heat transfer correlation can be used to calculate mass transfer and confirm that the performances of heat transfer and mass transfer are almost in the same order of magnitude. L� � Author information: (1)Department of Chemical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, Denmark. There are several models to describe the gas–liquid reactions, including the so-called “two-film theory” and “surface renewal theory.” When applied to practical problems the two models give similar results. Pauline M. Doran, in Bioprocess Engineering Principles (Second Edition), 2013. Learn more. Most of the resistance to mass transfer resides in the liquid films rather than in the bulk liquid. However, although not done routinely, measurement of the interfacial area per unit volume has been carried out very successfully by means of high-speed photography and image analysis. 5.3C, Eqs. There have been many recent studies of the mechanism of mass transfer in a gas absorption system. The mass transfer in extraction process is presumed to be occurred through the two films (two-film theory) with concentration gradients in both films and equilibrium at the interface [29]. The instantaneous molar flux per unit area (Equation 8.6) is combined with an age distribution function, written in terms of the fraction of liquid elements replaced at the interface during each time step, or the fractional rate of surface renewal, s (Equation 8.9). Plate 8.1. cAi and pAi are the concentration of the component A at the interface, in the liquid and gas side, respectively. A number of models to predict OTR have been developed, three of which have been the most widely documented, namely the Two Film Theory (TFT), the Penetration Theory (PT) and the Surface Renewal Theory (SRT). Copyright © 2021 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. Based on the definition of hyperbolic functions, the above equation can be rewritten as. 9.1. 5.3A for a gas-liquid interface where the component in fluid A diffuses into fluid B. However, this is not the case; short contact times will occur in regions of high turbulence and longer contact times in regions of lesser turbulence. To this end the mass transfer models like the film theory, the penetration theory, the surface renewal theory and the boundary layer theory were presented leading to the definition of mass transfer coefficient in one phase. One group produces a desired product using the gas–liquid reaction, and examples include producing nitric acid from water and NO2 and producing acetaldehyde by oxidizing ethylene in an aqueous solution of palladium chloride. The rate of the reaction can be written as, Treating the reaction as pseudo first order, the apparent rate constant. endstream endobj 117 0 obj <> endobj 118 0 obj <> endobj 119 0 obj <>stream (9.1) takes the same form as the diffusion–reaction equation on a thin-slab catalyst. These measurements are particularly useful in determining the impact of the interfacial transfer area per unit volume on the OTR. Thus a solubility relationship like Henry's law for gas-liquid systems (HA = cA/pA), or a partition coefficient for liquid-liquid systems (P = cA/cA′), can be considered. In summary, gas–liquid reactions have different characteristics, depending on the relative magnitude of the rates of chemical reaction and mass transfer. Assume that the phases are two immiscible liquids such as water and chloroform, and that A is initially at higher concentration in the aqueous phase than in the organic phase. The studies were extended to columns containing spheres and again the penetration theory was found to hold, there being very little mixing of the surface layers with the bulk of the fluid as it flowed from one layer of spheres to the next. However, in a practical lipid extraction process, one phase is usually dispersed as droplets in the other phase so that mass transfer occurs (Fig. As the concentration of B is constant, we do not have to solve Eq. In an attempt to test the surface renewal theory of gas absorption, Danckwerts and Kennedy(8) measured the transient rate of absorption of carbon dioxide into various solutions by means of a rotating drum which carried a film of liquid through the gas. 9. In what follows, we will solve the equations for a pseudo first order reaction and discuss the implications of the results. Considering steady-state mass transfer of A from a gas, across the gas-liquid interface, and into a liquid, the mass transfer can be written in the same way as Eq. Consequently, the assumption of identical contact times limits the PT and suggests that a theory incorporating variable contact times would be more appropriate. The theory considers that the resistance to mass transfer in a given turbulent fluid phase is present in a thin layer adjacent to the interface that is called a film (Seader et al., 2011). @��ĭL��K$��n��3��A\F�Ƅ� i� Differentiating Eq. According to the film theory, turbulence in each fluid dies out at the phase boundary. 81 lessons • 11h 9m . In the case where the reaction rate in bulk liquid is comparable with the mass transfer (i.e., αM>1), any means that enhance mass transfer will increase the overall reaction rate. The difference between CA1i and CA2i at the interface accounts for the possibility that, at equilibrium, A may be more soluble in one phase than in the other. (9.19) depends only on k, DAL, and cAi. The basic theory used in the Standard is the well-known “Two-film Theory” from Lewis and Whitman (1924), which states that transfer rate can be expressed in terms of an overall transfer coefficient and resistances on either side of the interface. Based on the definition of α and M. therefore, αM represents the relative magnitude of the reaction rate in the liquid phase and the mass transfer rate through the liquid film. Thus, in an aqueous medium, during its transfer from inside the gas bubble to the site of respiratory oxidation in the microorganism, the oxygen molecule will theoretically meet with resistance to transfer within the stagnant films in the gas and liquid phases at the gas–liquid interface and in the liquid phase around the cell (Figure 8.1). The analytical solution reveals that the film thickness at the top position of the tube at θ = 0 is, which corresponds to the local heat transfer coefficient of, The condensate mass flow rate per unit tube length at the bottom of the tube at θ = π can be obtained as, The Reynolds number at the tube bottom is, The mean heat transfer coefficient can be easily obtained as, We can also express Eq. To overcome this, the molar flux has traditionally been measured in terms of a molar flux per unit volume (N). Nernst postulated that near the interface there exists a stagnant film. In the presence of the additives, however, the process was accelerated as the result of chemical reaction. For the j gas components (j = CO and H2), the concentration in the liquid phase depends on the mass transfer coefficient (keff) and the equilibrium concentration at the interface (Ceq): The GL equilibrium is modelled by means of Henry’s law (3), which describes the relation between the liquid concentrations to the partial pressure Pj. Photo: W. Burger, Plate 8.2. Film resistance to mass transfer between two immiscible liquids. A wide range of system parameters affect KLa, some influencing the resistance, and hence KL, some influencing the transfer area directly and yet others impacting on both. designing the mass transfer equipment is the estimation of the mass flux at the interface. Eq. As with the TFT, the molar flux per unit area is combined with the interfacial area per unit volume to give the molar flux per unit volume (Equation 8.8). Photo: W. Burger. The surface activity forming particles of various molecules typically displays varying degree of surface polarity, triggering them to concentrate at the phase interface, which in turn affects the mass transfer process [31]. For a process with a slow reaction rate, the reaction takes place primarily in the bulk liquid and, therefore, reactors with large liquid retention are favorable. 116 0 obj <> endobj Solving Eqs. Molecular diffusion occurs through the film of thickness δ with a driving force cAi − cAb, where cAb is the bulk average concentration of A in the receiving fluid phase in Fig. Two film theory  Theory has been developed by Nernst, Lewis and Whitman. Formulation: • One-dimensional continuity and species at  Postulates that two non-turbulent fictitious films are present on either side of the interface between thw film  Mass transfer across these films purely occurs molecular diffusion. • Gradients in the boundary-tangential direction are negligible compared to boundary-normal gradients. After the initial turbulence had subsided, the mass transfer rate approached the rate for molecular diffusion provided that the circulation had stopped completely. An approximate analytical equation is derived for predicting the enhancement of mass transfer by decomposition and ozanation reactions, Environmental Progress, 10.1002/ep.670010312, 1, 3, (189-195), (2006). M≪1 for a very small k value. For example, M=0.05, α=1000, and αM=50, thus, β=0.98 and η=0.0196. [31]; the surface tension and overall mass transfer coefficient were decreased with the increment of biomass concentration in an extraction process. Gas absorption operation involves mass transfer from the gas phase to the liquid phase. Two Film Resistance Theory or interphase mass transfer has described mechanisms of steady-state mass transfer between two phases. Since kLcAi corresponds to the rate of absorption for physical absorption, the existence of chemical reaction enhances the rate of mass transfer by a factor of β. (9.1) results in. Mass transfer of solute from one phase to another involves transport from the bulk of one phase to the phase boundary or interface, then movement from the interface into the bulk of the second phase. Why? Shaofen Li, in Reaction Engineering, 2017. This makes the gas–liquid reactions different from the gas–solid reactions discussed in the previous chapter. Although the result was derived on the basis of M≪1, αM also depends on the magnitude of α. Consequently, αM can be much larger or smaller than 1, depending on α. Nevertheless all these models present the identical expression for OTR in terms of KLa and the driving force (Equation 8.4) and it is this equation which is used universally to predict and measure OTR in biological systems and which results in KLa being cited as the key parameter in the design and scale up of fermentation equipment for aerobic processes. (9.5) gives. Many of these have been directed towards investigating whether there is a significant resistance to mass transfer at the interface itself. Formulation - Film Theory Concepts: • Mass transfer occurs in a thin "film" or boundary layer. At a distance Z from the interface inside the film, balancing the mass of reactant A within an infinitesimal volume of dZ with a cross-section of unit area, we get. Substituting Eq. �= (9.17) gives. Two film theory is only a simplification of the mass transport directly at the interface, in which we assume there are two boundary layers on each side of the interface in which the concentration gradient is constant, giving us linear concentration profiles, and the concentration directly at the interface is determined by Henrys Law. On the basis of Eqs. The presence of surface-active agents appeared to cause an interfacial resistance, although this effect is probably attributable to a modification of the hydrodynamic pattern. The TFT is based on the assumption that a stagnant film will form on either side of any phase interface, that all resistance to oxygen transfer resides within the stagnant films and that transfer of oxygen through these stagnant films takes place by molecular diffusion only. For reactions with a high reaction rate, the reaction is essentially completed within the liquid film. where G is inert gas flow rate (kgmol/m2-hr), P is total system pressure (kPa), yA,G is mole fraction of solute A in the bulk gas-phase (mol/mol), y*A is mole fraction of solute A in equilibrium with CA,L(mol/mol), YA is mole ratio of A in the bulk gas-phase (mol/mol), and Z is height (m).

Another group is gas purification through gas–liquid reaction, e.g., removing CO by passing the gas mixture through a copper ammonia solution; H2S removal from natural gas using caustic or other basic solutions. We use cookies to help provide and enhance our service and tailor content and ads. η→1/(αM) shows that chemical reaction in the liquid phase still contributes to the overall rate although the utilization of the liquid phase is not high. Cognisance should, however, be taken of interactive affects and constraints be applied. The effectiveness factor of the gas–liquid reactions is defined as. When a small amount of surface active agent was present in the water no appreciable mixing was found between the layers of spheres. 9.1). L12: Mass transfer coefficients in turbulent flow - Film theory. kG = gas film mass transfer coefficient = DO 2 G ... 4.3 Penetration Theory We assume a non-steady-state film, which at the moment of film formation, curtains the bulk concentrations in both the gas and liquid phases. The mathematical development is fairly lengthy so complete derivations are not given here. The dimensionless forms of Eqs. Yet increased turbulence may damage shear sensitive microorganisms and while oxygen availability is increased, the method by which this has been achieved could diminish the microorganisms’ ability for product formation. Based on film theory, at a steady-state condition, by combining mass flux equation and a material balance equation, KGav can be defined as follows (detailed description can be seen in (Aroonwilas and Tontiwachwuthikul, 1998, deMontigny et al., 2001, and Maneeintr et al. Concentration and partial pressure profiles for solute transport through membranes: (A) film theory; (B) double-film theory; (C) double-film theory with a membrane in between the fluid phases. The two solvent may be, for example, water and dichloromethane. However, in the Higbie–Danckwerts theory N’A α NA'∝DL whereas N’A α DL in the two-film theory. A more detailed explanation is included in the specific sections of this chapter. On the other hand, both mass transfer and chemical reactions need to be dealt with for gas–liquid reactions, similar to that for gas–solid reaction. For that reason a laminar jet has been used by a number of workers. - All action (fluid flow and mass transfer) occurs in a thin film at the interface - Bulk fluid (e.g. The above analysis of the development of the TFT, PT and SRT models for prediction of the OTR in biological systems distinguishes important differences in the parameters and form of the equation for the prediction of KL. Therefore the mass transfer flux of A in terms of mass transfer film coefficient for each phase can be written as: (3.74) When η=1, the entire liquid phase participates in the reaction, and when η<1, only a portion of liquid phase participates, meaning that the liquid phase is not fully utilized. This approach is the basis of the resistance-in-series model since each film of fluid and the membrane produces a specific resistance, represented by the inverse of the individual mass transfer coefficients. The Sauter mean diameters, together with gas hold up measurements, facilitate the calculation of the total interfacial area per unit volume. Figure 10.2. the magnitude of η is a measure of liquid phase utilization. Hansen E(1), Mollerup J. However, there is only a little resistance to mass transfer if the interface is clean [11]. Therefore the mass transfer flux of A in terms of mass transfer film coefficient for each phase can be written as: (3.74) 1-2 For a binary mixture of A and B, the mass flux, nA,z, of species A relative to the z axis is nA,z = − ρDAB A d dz ω + ωA(nA,z + nB,z) (1.5) The molar flux of species i can be expressed as Ni = civi (1.6) In this equation, is the absolute velocity of species i relative to the stationary coordinate axis. Although the PT introduces time dependence into the equation and prediction of KL from the PT is an improvement on that from the TFT, fault has been found with the PT regarding the assumption that gas contact times for each fluid element are identical. Similar to treating the gas–solid catalytic reaction, the effectiveness factor was introduced to account for the impact of the mass transfer. In the PT, the term 2Dπt represents KL and the OTR is governed by the same final equation as for the TFT (Equation 8.4). Any turbulence disappears at the interface or free surface, and the flow is thus considered to be laminar and parallel to the surface. 10.According to the film theory, the mass transfer coefficient, k l, and diffusivity are related as. Gas–liquid reactions, encountered frequently in chemical and refining processes, can be categorized into two groups. RICHARDSON, ... J.R. BACKHURST, in Chemical Engineering (Fifth Edition), Volume 2, 2002. (9.6) to. At steady-state, the rate of A diffusing from the interface to the liquid equals the rate of reaction of A in the liquid phase. Reaction and diffusion occur simultaneously in this step. Normally, the ratio DABδis unknown since the thickness of the films depends on the flow conditions, and is replaced by a mass transfer coefficient for each film, which considers the mass transfer resistance of each film. endstream endobj startxref In gas-liquid and liquid-liquid separation processes, the mass transfer resistance in both phases has to be considered, and the presence of a membrane introduces a third phase to be also evaluated. The overall reaction rate as defined in Eq. In order to obtain results which can readily be interpreted, it is essential to operate with a system of simple geometry. (5.2). Similarly, for reactant B. where δL is the film thickness, a is the surface area of unit volume liquid, and therefore, aδL corresponds to the volume of the liquid film and 1−aδL is the volume of bulk liquid. It was reported in a study by Pursell et al. 10p Kim Gail Clarke, in Bioprocess Engineering, 2013. Each term of the equation represents one resistance to mass transfer, thus the overall resistance, 1Koverall, is the result of the sum of the resistances given by the gas phase (Rg), the membrane (Rm), and the liquid phase (Rl): The mathematical description shown previously is an example of mass transfer in a gas-liquid system with pores filled with gas.

In such a case, the reaction is slow and takes place entirely in the liquid phase. Therefore, the mass transfer was extremely inten- ... could be simulated in wetted wall column by two-film theory. In such a case, tanhM→M and Eqs. Two-resistance theory defines the mass transfer in each phase as a function of the concentration driving force and the individual mass transfer coefficient based on the following equations previously mentioned: (1) (2) Overall mass transfer coefficients defined by: (5) (6) And related to the individual coefficients by the relations: (10) (11) Also, assume quasi-steady state, identical ambient conditions, and negligible heat effects. Thus, the effects of interfacial resistance could not have been significant. The inflow and outflow volumetric flow rates are given by V.in and V.out, while vi,l are the coefficients of the stoichiometric matrix and rl is the reaction rate for the reaction l. The interested reader is referred to the literature for the kinetic model (Hentschel et al., 2015). (5.3a), (5.3b) should be completed with a third equation that describes the mass transfer through the membrane (assuming gas in the pores): The equilibrium at the gas-liquid interface is given by cAi = HApAm. The film theory as described above is applied extensively in analysis of mass transfer, although it is a greatly simplified representation. They are related by the Henry's law since it is considered that they are in equilibrium: cAi = HApAi. (6) who absorbed pure carbon dioxide into water. In the first theory it was assumed that all the surfaces were of equal length, and in the second that there was a random distribution of surface lengths up to a maximum. However, in bioprocesses which use hydrocarbons as substrates, the hydrocarbon concentration may well be at a concentration high enough to result in a KLa depression that eclipses the effect of increased oxygen solubility on the OTR. Thus. A higher concentration difference and larger interfacial area are favored to generate higher rate of solute transfer. The film theory is based on the idea that a fluid film or mass transfer boundary layer forms wherever there is contact between two phases. Hansen E(1), Mollerup J. Temperature also affects the oxygen solubility with a decrease in temperature resulting in an improvement. Substituting the Henry's law relationship in Eq. The transport of mass within a single phase depends directly on the concentration gradient of the transporting species in that phase. L12: Mass transfer coefficients in turbulent flow - Film theory. In a drop with stable natural circulation the rate was found to approach 2.5 times the rate for molecular diffusion. where α=1/aδL, the volume ratio of bulk liquid and liquid film. (9.15) and (9.18), β and η are both functions of α and M. In what follows, we will discuss a few specific cases, M≫1 for a very large value of reaction rate constant k. The property of the hypertangent leads to tanhM→1 for M>3. gas) –FILM –bulk fluid (e.g. Absorption of gases and vapour by drops has been studied by Garner and Kendrick(15) and Garner and Lane(16) who developed a vertical wind tunnel in which drops could be suspended for considerable periods of time in the rising gas stream. (9.7) to Eq. (5.3b) to eliminate cAi, and introducing the resulting expression in Eq. In such a case, increasing the reaction temperature (to increase k and DAL) and reducing the resistance in liquid film will benefit the overall rate but increasing the liquid turbulence and reducing the thickness of liquid film will not have much effect on the overall rate. The experimental results and conclusions are reported by Danckwerts, Kennedy, and Roberts(10) who showed that they could be used, on the basis of the penetration theory model, to predict the performance of a packed column to within about 10 per cent. Learn more. In the ST, the term Ds represents KL and the OTR is governed by the same final equation as for the TFT (Equation 8.4). This approach is more appropriate in a well‐mixed vessel, where eddy currents continually expose fresh liquid surfaces to the oxygen and a steady state concentration gradient in a stagnant film at the interface is less likely. In very short columns, however, the rate was overestimated because of the formation of a region in which the surface was stagnant over the bottom one centimetre length of column. On the other hand, when the reaction is used to produce a desired product, the reaction rate in the liquid phase and conversion of the reactant as well as the impact of interphase mass transfer on the reaction rate will be the major concerns. The concentration of A in the bulk aqueous phase is CA1; the concentration of A in the bulk organic phase is CA2. oxygen solubility) and δ is the thickness of the stagnant film. The aqueous MDEA flow was gravity flow on wetted wall. The mass transfer coefficients, k g and k y are related according to the relation. (9.19), we get the rate of absorption, Reinaldo Hernández, Sebastian Engell, in Computer Aided Chemical Engineering, 2016. The film theory has been extensively applied to describe the mass transfer in systems in which fluid phases are present. Describe the basic concept of the two-film theory! Shareable Link. Even though the bulk liquids in Figure 10.2 may be well mixed, diffusion of component A is crucial for mass transfer because the local fluid velocities approach zero at the interface. Consequently, Eq. h�bbd``b`�! (9.10), we get. Zhiwu Liang, ... Paitoon Tontiwatchwuthikul, in Proceedings of the 3rd Gas Processing Symposium, 2012. Mass transfer describes the transport of mass from one point to another and is one of the main pillars in the subject of Transport Phenomena. The TFT has by far been the most commonly used and is well documented in biotechnology texts dealing with oxygen transfer. (9.8), we get. There are other models of mass transfer in fluids that lead to more realistic mathematical outcomes than the film theory [1, 4]. Use the link below to share a full-text version of this article with your friends and colleagues. Experimental results were in good agreement with the second theory. The equation of overall mass By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. When B is in excess, its concentration inside the film can be considered constant, thus, k2cB is constant. This expression for OTR predicts that the rate can be enhanced by increasing the KLa and/or the oxygen solubility. At the interface, phase equilibrium is assumed. Mass transfer occurs in many processes, such as absorption, evaporation, drying, precipitation, membrane filtration, and distillation. The heat transfer correlation can be used to calculate mass transfer and confirm that the performances of heat transfer and mass transfer are almost in the same order of magnitude. L� � Author information: (1)Department of Chemical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, Denmark. There are several models to describe the gas–liquid reactions, including the so-called “two-film theory” and “surface renewal theory.” When applied to practical problems the two models give similar results. Pauline M. Doran, in Bioprocess Engineering Principles (Second Edition), 2013. Learn more. Most of the resistance to mass transfer resides in the liquid films rather than in the bulk liquid. However, although not done routinely, measurement of the interfacial area per unit volume has been carried out very successfully by means of high-speed photography and image analysis. 5.3C, Eqs. There have been many recent studies of the mechanism of mass transfer in a gas absorption system. The mass transfer in extraction process is presumed to be occurred through the two films (two-film theory) with concentration gradients in both films and equilibrium at the interface [29]. The instantaneous molar flux per unit area (Equation 8.6) is combined with an age distribution function, written in terms of the fraction of liquid elements replaced at the interface during each time step, or the fractional rate of surface renewal, s (Equation 8.9). Plate 8.1. cAi and pAi are the concentration of the component A at the interface, in the liquid and gas side, respectively. A number of models to predict OTR have been developed, three of which have been the most widely documented, namely the Two Film Theory (TFT), the Penetration Theory (PT) and the Surface Renewal Theory (SRT). Copyright © 2021 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. Based on the definition of hyperbolic functions, the above equation can be rewritten as. 9.1. 5.3A for a gas-liquid interface where the component in fluid A diffuses into fluid B. However, this is not the case; short contact times will occur in regions of high turbulence and longer contact times in regions of lesser turbulence. To this end the mass transfer models like the film theory, the penetration theory, the surface renewal theory and the boundary layer theory were presented leading to the definition of mass transfer coefficient in one phase. One group produces a desired product using the gas–liquid reaction, and examples include producing nitric acid from water and NO2 and producing acetaldehyde by oxidizing ethylene in an aqueous solution of palladium chloride. The rate of the reaction can be written as, Treating the reaction as pseudo first order, the apparent rate constant. endstream endobj 117 0 obj <> endobj 118 0 obj <> endobj 119 0 obj <>stream (9.1) takes the same form as the diffusion–reaction equation on a thin-slab catalyst. These measurements are particularly useful in determining the impact of the interfacial transfer area per unit volume on the OTR. Thus a solubility relationship like Henry's law for gas-liquid systems (HA = cA/pA), or a partition coefficient for liquid-liquid systems (P = cA/cA′), can be considered. In summary, gas–liquid reactions have different characteristics, depending on the relative magnitude of the rates of chemical reaction and mass transfer. Assume that the phases are two immiscible liquids such as water and chloroform, and that A is initially at higher concentration in the aqueous phase than in the organic phase. The studies were extended to columns containing spheres and again the penetration theory was found to hold, there being very little mixing of the surface layers with the bulk of the fluid as it flowed from one layer of spheres to the next. However, in a practical lipid extraction process, one phase is usually dispersed as droplets in the other phase so that mass transfer occurs (Fig. As the concentration of B is constant, we do not have to solve Eq. In an attempt to test the surface renewal theory of gas absorption, Danckwerts and Kennedy(8) measured the transient rate of absorption of carbon dioxide into various solutions by means of a rotating drum which carried a film of liquid through the gas. 9. In what follows, we will solve the equations for a pseudo first order reaction and discuss the implications of the results. Considering steady-state mass transfer of A from a gas, across the gas-liquid interface, and into a liquid, the mass transfer can be written in the same way as Eq. Consequently, the assumption of identical contact times limits the PT and suggests that a theory incorporating variable contact times would be more appropriate. The theory considers that the resistance to mass transfer in a given turbulent fluid phase is present in a thin layer adjacent to the interface that is called a film (Seader et al., 2011). @��ĭL��K$��n��3��A\F�Ƅ� i� Differentiating Eq. According to the film theory, turbulence in each fluid dies out at the phase boundary. 81 lessons • 11h 9m . In the case where the reaction rate in bulk liquid is comparable with the mass transfer (i.e., αM>1), any means that enhance mass transfer will increase the overall reaction rate. The difference between CA1i and CA2i at the interface accounts for the possibility that, at equilibrium, A may be more soluble in one phase than in the other. (9.19) depends only on k, DAL, and cAi. The basic theory used in the Standard is the well-known “Two-film Theory” from Lewis and Whitman (1924), which states that transfer rate can be expressed in terms of an overall transfer coefficient and resistances on either side of the interface. Based on the definition of α and M. therefore, αM represents the relative magnitude of the reaction rate in the liquid phase and the mass transfer rate through the liquid film. Thus, in an aqueous medium, during its transfer from inside the gas bubble to the site of respiratory oxidation in the microorganism, the oxygen molecule will theoretically meet with resistance to transfer within the stagnant films in the gas and liquid phases at the gas–liquid interface and in the liquid phase around the cell (Figure 8.1). The analytical solution reveals that the film thickness at the top position of the tube at θ = 0 is, which corresponds to the local heat transfer coefficient of, The condensate mass flow rate per unit tube length at the bottom of the tube at θ = π can be obtained as, The Reynolds number at the tube bottom is, The mean heat transfer coefficient can be easily obtained as, We can also express Eq. To overcome this, the molar flux has traditionally been measured in terms of a molar flux per unit volume (N). Nernst postulated that near the interface there exists a stagnant film. In the presence of the additives, however, the process was accelerated as the result of chemical reaction. For the j gas components (j = CO and H2), the concentration in the liquid phase depends on the mass transfer coefficient (keff) and the equilibrium concentration at the interface (Ceq): The GL equilibrium is modelled by means of Henry’s law (3), which describes the relation between the liquid concentrations to the partial pressure Pj. Photo: W. Burger, Plate 8.2. Film resistance to mass transfer between two immiscible liquids. A wide range of system parameters affect KLa, some influencing the resistance, and hence KL, some influencing the transfer area directly and yet others impacting on both. designing the mass transfer equipment is the estimation of the mass flux at the interface. Eq. As with the TFT, the molar flux per unit area is combined with the interfacial area per unit volume to give the molar flux per unit volume (Equation 8.8). Photo: W. Burger. The surface activity forming particles of various molecules typically displays varying degree of surface polarity, triggering them to concentrate at the phase interface, which in turn affects the mass transfer process [31]. For a process with a slow reaction rate, the reaction takes place primarily in the bulk liquid and, therefore, reactors with large liquid retention are favorable. 116 0 obj <> endobj Solving Eqs. Molecular diffusion occurs through the film of thickness δ with a driving force cAi − cAb, where cAb is the bulk average concentration of A in the receiving fluid phase in Fig. Two film theory  Theory has been developed by Nernst, Lewis and Whitman. Formulation: • One-dimensional continuity and species at  Postulates that two non-turbulent fictitious films are present on either side of the interface between thw film  Mass transfer across these films purely occurs molecular diffusion. • Gradients in the boundary-tangential direction are negligible compared to boundary-normal gradients. After the initial turbulence had subsided, the mass transfer rate approached the rate for molecular diffusion provided that the circulation had stopped completely. An approximate analytical equation is derived for predicting the enhancement of mass transfer by decomposition and ozanation reactions, Environmental Progress, 10.1002/ep.670010312, 1, 3, (189-195), (2006). M≪1 for a very small k value. For example, M=0.05, α=1000, and αM=50, thus, β=0.98 and η=0.0196. [31]; the surface tension and overall mass transfer coefficient were decreased with the increment of biomass concentration in an extraction process. Gas absorption operation involves mass transfer from the gas phase to the liquid phase. Two Film Resistance Theory or interphase mass transfer has described mechanisms of steady-state mass transfer between two phases. Since kLcAi corresponds to the rate of absorption for physical absorption, the existence of chemical reaction enhances the rate of mass transfer by a factor of β. (9.1) results in. Mass transfer of solute from one phase to another involves transport from the bulk of one phase to the phase boundary or interface, then movement from the interface into the bulk of the second phase. Why? Shaofen Li, in Reaction Engineering, 2017. This makes the gas–liquid reactions different from the gas–solid reactions discussed in the previous chapter. Although the result was derived on the basis of M≪1, αM also depends on the magnitude of α. Consequently, αM can be much larger or smaller than 1, depending on α. Nevertheless all these models present the identical expression for OTR in terms of KLa and the driving force (Equation 8.4) and it is this equation which is used universally to predict and measure OTR in biological systems and which results in KLa being cited as the key parameter in the design and scale up of fermentation equipment for aerobic processes. (9.5) gives. Many of these have been directed towards investigating whether there is a significant resistance to mass transfer at the interface itself. Formulation - Film Theory Concepts: • Mass transfer occurs in a thin "film" or boundary layer. At a distance Z from the interface inside the film, balancing the mass of reactant A within an infinitesimal volume of dZ with a cross-section of unit area, we get. Substituting Eq. �= (9.17) gives. Two film theory is only a simplification of the mass transport directly at the interface, in which we assume there are two boundary layers on each side of the interface in which the concentration gradient is constant, giving us linear concentration profiles, and the concentration directly at the interface is determined by Henrys Law. On the basis of Eqs. The presence of surface-active agents appeared to cause an interfacial resistance, although this effect is probably attributable to a modification of the hydrodynamic pattern. The TFT is based on the assumption that a stagnant film will form on either side of any phase interface, that all resistance to oxygen transfer resides within the stagnant films and that transfer of oxygen through these stagnant films takes place by molecular diffusion only. For reactions with a high reaction rate, the reaction is essentially completed within the liquid film. where G is inert gas flow rate (kgmol/m2-hr), P is total system pressure (kPa), yA,G is mole fraction of solute A in the bulk gas-phase (mol/mol), y*A is mole fraction of solute A in equilibrium with CA,L(mol/mol), YA is mole ratio of A in the bulk gas-phase (mol/mol), and Z is height (m).
