Chemical Reactor Design, Optimization, and Scaleup, Second by E. Bruce Nauman

By E. Bruce Nauman

The vintage reference, now improved and updated

Chemical Reactor layout, Optimization, and Scaleup is the authoritative sourcebook on chemical reactors. This new moment variation consolidates the newest info on present optimization and scaleup methodologies, numerical equipment, and biochemical and polymer reactions. It presents the great instruments and knowledge to assist readers layout and specify chemical reactors with a bit of luck, with state of the art talents. This authoritative advisor:

  • Covers the basics and rules of chemical reactor layout, besides complex subject matters and functions
  • offers options for facing various actual houses in reactors of all kinds and reasons
  • encompasses a thoroughly new bankruptcy on meso-, micro-, and nano-scale reactors that addresses such subject matters as axial diffusion in micro-scale reactors and self-assembly of nano-scale buildings
  • Explains the tactic of fake transients, a numerical answer method
  • comprises feedback for additional interpreting, difficulties, and, while acceptable, scaleup or scaledown issues on the finish of every bankruptcy to demonstrate commercial functions
  • Serves as a prepared reference for defined formulation, ideas, and knowledge

this is often the definitive hands-on reference for practising execs and a very good textbook for classes in chemical reactor layout. it really is a vital source for chemical engineers within the procedure industries, together with petrochemicals, biochemicals, microelectronics, and water treatment.Content:

Example text

6 used the entire reactor as the control volume and produced a result containing the average reaction rate Rˆ A . In piston flow, a varies with z so that the local reaction rate also varies with z, and there is no simple way of calculating Rˆ A . 6 is an overall balance applicable to the entire system. It is also called an integral balance. It just states that, if more of a component leaves the reactor than enters, then the difference had to be formed inside the reactor. A differential balance is written for a vanishingly small control volume within which R A is approximately constant.

Heat and mass transfer limitations are rarely important in the laboratory but may emerge upon scaleup. Batch reactors with internal variations in temperature or composition are difficult to analyze and remain a challenge to the chemical reaction engineer. 5. For now assume an ideal batch reactor with the following characteristics: 1. Reactants are quickly charged, mixed, and brought to temperature at the beginning of the reaction cycle. 2. The reaction mass constitutes a single, fluid phase. 3.

For now assume an ideal batch reactor with the following characteristics: 1. Reactants are quickly charged, mixed, and brought to temperature at the beginning of the reaction cycle. 2. The reaction mass constitutes a single, fluid phase. 3. Mixing and heat transfer are sufficient to assure that the batch remains completely uniform in temperature and composition throughout the reaction cycle. 4. The operating temperature is held constant. A batch reactor has no input or output of mass after the initial charging.
