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.

This book covers the transport of momentum, heat, and mass in non-equilibrium systems. It derives balance equations for general properties and introduces the concepts of convective and diffusive flux. These are applied to the conservation of mass.

This book provides broad coverage of ion exchange and its applications. The authors focus on the importance of ion exchange applications such as strengtening dental porcelains, gradient changes in glass refraction, and resins as effective sorbents.

This book describes the various filtration processes using membranes such as microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, reverse osmosis. Fluid mechanics concepts are reviewed in order to permit to describe the flow inside filtration modules.

Membrane distillation (MD) is a relatively new thermal membrane process which is attracting significant interest as a potential low cost and energy saving alternative to conventional separation processes such as distillation and reverse osmosis (RO).
