Abstract: This paper applies the Eulerian–Eulerian approach to study the effect of ring sparger diameter on the gas and liquid dynamics in a cylindrical bubble column reactor. The distribution of the gas hold-up and liquid flow pattern using different ring sparger diameters (i.e., 0.07, 0.14 and 0.20 m) are investigated.
