Figure 12-6 shows schematics of a CSTR with a heat exchanger. The heat transfer fluid enters the exchanger at a mass flow rate (e.g., kg/s) at a temperature Ta1 and leaves at a temperature Ta2. The rate of heat transfer from the exchanger to the reactor fluid at temperature T is3
For exothermic reactions (T>Ta2>Ta1)
