Application of tomography in microreactors

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Tomography is an effective method for imaging, separating, or sorting of cells. In this chapter, a condensed review of recent advances accomplished in development and applications of noninvasive tomographic techniques to multiphase flows is presented. In recent years, utilization of such noninvasive techniques has become widespread in engineering disciplines, dealing with systems involving two immiscible phases or more. Tomography provides concentration, holdup, and 2D or 3D density distribution of at least one component of multiphase systems and dynamic features of the phase of interest, such as flow pattern, velocity field, and 2D or 3D instantaneous movements. This chapter summarizes the progress and developments in flow imaging techniques in microreactors and microchannels using a range of tomography techniques: γ-ray, X-ray transmission tomography, X-ray radiography, neutron transmission tomography and radiography, positron emission tomography, and electrical impedance tomography. The basic principles of the techniques are outlined, along with advantages and limitations inherent to each technique.
