Chemical Reactor Design and Control by William L. Luyben

By William L. Luyben

Chemical Reactor layout and keep an eye on makes use of method simulators like Matlab®, Aspen Plus, and Aspen Dynamics to check the layout of chemical reactors and their dynamic regulate. there are lots of books that target steady-state reactor layout. There aren't any books that give some thought to useful regulate structures for actual business reactors. This certain reference addresses the simultaneous layout and keep watch over of chemical reactors. After a dialogue of reactor fundamentals, it: Covers 3 varieties of classical reactors: non-stop stirred tank (CSTR), batch, and tubular plug move Emphasizes temperature keep an eye on and the serious influence of steady-state layout at the dynamics and balance of reactors Covers chemical reactors and regulate difficulties in a plantwide setting comprises quite a few tables and indicates step by step calculations with equations Discusses the way to use approach simulators to handle various concerns and kinds of operationsThis is a pragmatic reference for chemical engineering execs within the approach industries, execs who paintings with chemical reactors, and scholars in undergraduate and graduate reactor layout, method regulate, and plant layout classes.

Sample text

The reader is referred to the textbooks previously mentioned. In many practical applications, the engineer often has only plant performance data to use to backcalculate kinetic parameters. Data of this type are seldom extensive enough to permit precise calculation of all parameters since the plant normally operates in a fairly narrow window of operating conditions. However, useful simplified kinetics and parameters can often be determined that describe the major kinetics inside this region. Extrapolation outside the region from which the data has been obtained is very risky.

Another important consideration regarding the aspect ratio is its effect on mixing. It becomes more difficult to achieve good mixing as the aspect ratio increases. 2 discusses some of these problems. They point out that the trend is to build reactors with larger volumes. 6 m in diameter is difficult because of road bridge dimensions and overhead electric line heights. This means that vessels with larger aspect ratios are used as vessel volume increases. New techniques for achieving good mixing in vessels with larger L/D ratios are discussed in their paper.

In this section we show quantitatively what the heat transfer scaleup problem is for a CSTR. 506 g/s of feed with a density of 801 kg/m3 and a temperature of 294 K. The reaction is A ! B, which takes place in the liquid phase at a reactor temperature of 333 K. 409 Â 1024 s21. 926 kmol/m3 (conversion is 51%). The reactor is cooled by a circulating cooling water system. 71 Â 106 J/kmol. The heat that must be transferred to the jacket is 817 W. 9 K, giving a jacket temperature of 330 K. 43 g/s. If the flowrate of the makeup cooling water were made very large, the jacket temperature could be reduced to almost 294 K, which would give a differential temperature of 333 2 294 ¼ 39 K.
