Zinc hydrosulfite by three-phase fluidization: experiments and model

Sastri, NVS and Epstein, N and Hirata, A and Koshijima, I and Izumi, M (1983) Zinc hydrosulfite by three-phase fluidization: experiments and model. In: Journal of Chemical Engineering, 61 (5). pp. 635-646.

A cocurrent flow of pure gaseous $SO_2$ and liquid $H_2O$ was used to fluidize particulate $Zn$ in order to produce industrial concentrations of $ZnS_2O_4$. Based on transport phenomena and reaction kinetics, measured concentration profiles of both absorbed $SO_2$ and reacted $Zn$, as well as mean solid holdups, were best predicted by a combined bubble-wake and axially dispersed plug-flow model.
