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.

Electrochemistry has been undergoing significant transformations in the last few decades. It is now the province of academics interested in thermodynamic properties of solutions and of industrialists using electrolysis or manufacturing batteries.
This book explains the basic principles behind what chemical engineers do and how they can use powerful tools from physics to solve problems involving steady-state processes. The book is designed as an introduction to the subject.

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.
