Chapter 8 Example

Adiabatic Endothermic Reaction

PFR Adiabatic

Case A Fix FT0, CT0 and therefore υ0 is consistent as ΘI is varied

  1. Irreversible A → B
    Liquid Phase
    A. First order

    First Order irreversible

    B. Second order

    Second Order Irreversible

Case B For Fixed FA0, CT0 and Variable FI0 therefore variable υ0

    Let ν∞ be the volumetric flow with pure A.

    First order reaction

    Now as inerts are added to the volumetic flow rate ν0 will increase

    The same will hold true for a second order reaction for fixed FA0
