Chapter 22: Reactors

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • The important roles of reaction kinetics, equilibrium, and heat transfer in determining the correct design for chemical reactors

  • The hierarchy of configurations for removing heat from exothermic, gas-phase catalytic reactions

  • That exothermic, gas-phase reactions may give rise to temperature hot spots in the reactor that can lead to dangerous conditions

  • That the performance of existing reactors is complex and requires numerical solutions when temperature effects are taken into account

As for other chapters in this section of the book, the intention of this chapter is not to replace a textbook on a specific topic, reaction engineering in this case, but rather to highlight some basic equations relating ...
