12. Steady-State Nonisothermal Reactor Design—Flow Reactors with Heat Exchange

Research is to see what everybody else sees, and to think what nobody else has thought.

—Albert Szent-Gyorgyi

Overview. This chapter focuses on chemical reactors with heat exchange. The chapter topics are arranged in the following manner:

Section 12.1 further develops the energy balance for easy application to PFRs and PBRs.

Section 12.2 describes PFRs and PBRs for four types of heat exchanger operations.

(1) Constant heat-transfer fluid temperature, Ta

(2) Variable fluid temperature Ta with co-current operation

(3) Variable fluid temperature Ta with countercurrent operation

(4) Adiabatic operation

Section 12.3 describes the algorithm for PFRs and PBRs and gives ...
