This video is about the simulation of the reactive distillation column in Aspen Plus. Part of TAME manufacturing process is considered for this simulation. The simulation has 1 plug flow reactor and 1 reactive distillation column. Rate base model is used to simulate the RD column.
The Biot number (Bi) is the ratio of the thermal resistances inside of a body and at the surface of a body. The Biot number is defined as: Characteristic length can be estimated as:
