  A computational fluid dynamic (CFD) study of methanol (MeOH) to dimethyl ether (DME) process in an adiabatic fixed-bed reactor is presented. One of the methods of industrial DME production is the catalytic dehydration of MeOH. Kinetic model was derived based on Bercic rate. The parameters of this equation ...  Read More
