12.6.5 Complex Reactions in a PFR

Example 12-7. Complex Reactions with Heat Effects in a PFR

The following complex gas phase reactions follow elementary rate laws

(1) A + 2B → C image ΔHRx1B = –15,000cal/mole B

(2) 2A + 3C → D image ΔHRx2A = –10,000cal/mole A

and take place in a PFR. The feed is stoichiometric for reaction (1) in A and B with FA0 = 5 mol/min. The reactor volume is 10 dm3 and the total entering concentration is CT0 = 0.2 mol/dm3. The entering pressure is 100 atm and the entering temperature is 300 K. The coolant flow rate is 50 mol/min and ...
