Modelling Of Hydrogen Explosion on a Pressure Swing Adsorption Facility

Abstract

Computational fluid dynamic simulations have been performed in order to study the consequences of a hydrogen release from a pressure swing adsorption installation operating at 30 barg. The simulations were performed using FLACS-Hydrogen software from GexCon. The impact of obstruction, partial confinement, leak orientation and wind on the explosive cloud formation (size and explosive mass) and on explosion consequences is investigated. Overpressures resulting from ignition are calculated as a function of the time to ignition.
