Abstract

Micro-reactor and other micro-devices have received attention from the society nowadays. This field is unique and has its own advantages which are worth to be studied further. This project entitled 'Numerical Simulation of Fluid Hydrodynamics in V-Shape Micro-channel for Ammonia Production using Microreactor' has 3 objectives which are to develop a model for ammonia production in micro-reactor, to identity the optimal catalyst location and to study the effect of micro-channel diameter and inlet volumetric flow-rate toward the degree of mixing of the reactants. Currently the production of ammonia widely is by using Haber-Bosh process. This Haber-Bosh process is proven in large-scale industrial process. However it uses high temperatures (e.g., at 748 K) and pressures (e.g., at 20 MPa), and has not been proven technically or economically effective below the ton per hour range (J.N. Sahu, 2010). The study will be focusing on replacing the bulk reactor in the HaberBosh process with micro-reactor. The scope of study is focusing on hydrodynamics of fluid where the reaction to produce ammonia was not taken into consideration. The effect of micro-channel diameter and inlet volumetric flow-rate toward the ammonia production is assessed by using computational fluid dynamic (CFD) approach. ANSYS 14, CFD is the software for the simulation. Later the result from the simulation will be assessed in order to proceed to the next phase, manufacturing the micro-reactor under 'One Baja' project.
