Fundamentals of Reaction Engineering

Publisher: BookBoon 2009
Number of pages: 112
This is an introductory text covering the basic elements of reactor design. The focus is on simple flow patterns. Material and energy balances have been derived for continuous stirred tank reactors and tubular flow reactors, assuming plug flow. Non-ideal flow is briefly discussed. The important case of exothermic-reversible reactions has been discussed in the context of staged reactors, with interstage or cold-shot cooling. The analysis of heat and mass transfer to/from catalyst pellets in fixed bed catalytic reactors has been introduced, emphasizing the formulation of global reaction rate expressions. Different ways of modeling FBCRs has been described.

The purpose of desalination is to make water drinkable, or pure enough for industrial applications. This volume touches on Membranes and Systems, Solar Desalination, Reverse Osmosis Process Chemistry and Control, Drinking Water Quality, etc.
Precise control of level, temperature, pressure and flow is important in many process applications. This book introduces you to control in process industries, explains why it is important, and identifies the ways in which precise control is ensured.
