Abstract

The performance of an immobilized packed bed reactor for the hydrolysis of rice bran oil has been investigated and can be well described by a dispersion model with an average standard deviation of 0.0388. Global mass transfer coefficients estimated using the model and experimental data ranged from 0.095-0.482 min-1, depending on substrate flow rates. A dimensionless mass transfer correlation between the Sherwood number and the Reynolds number was obtained as NSh = 3.96×NRe2.07.
