Model Based Scale-up of Dicumyl Peroxide Decomposition

Model based scale-up has application to all areas of process simulation: Relief system design, process optimization, and chemical reactivity hazard evaluation. Model based scale-up is a three step approach:

  • Conduct a closed small-scale adiabatic test (e.g., ARC®, APTAC™)
  • Develop a model that simulates the adiabatic test
  • Predict behavior in the full-scale vessel

This presentation uses modeling and simulations completed using SuperChems™ Expert. Presented by Michelle Murphy for Design Institute for Emergency Relief Systems (DIERS) on May 9, 2012.
