What is CAFLUR?
Caflur is a tool for analyzing chemical reactors.
It can generate a HTML file with tables and graphics of Residence Time Distributions. It can calculate conversions for both linear and non-linear systems, with and without flow model; and the parameters for some non-ideal flow models (tanks in series, axial dispersion and combined models).
In addition, it can calculate the micromixing intensity. The graphics can be generated in six different image formats, and be fully customized. The HTML results' report is also fully customizable.
