Our next step is to express the partial pressures PT, PB, and PH2 as a function of X, combine the partial pressures with the rate law, , as a function of conversion, and carry out the integration of the packed-bed design equation
Example 10-2. Catalytic Reactor Design
The hydrodemethylation of toluene is to be carried out in a PBR catalytic reactor.
The molar feed rate of toluene to the reactor is 50 mol/min, and the ...
