Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to:

  • explain basic terms of chemical reaction engineering
  • setup mass and energy balances for ideal reactor models like the stirred tank reactor, plug flow reactor, stirred tanks in series as well as reactor combinations
  • apply these calculation methods for finding kinetic data with the help of Lab-scale reactors
  • determine residence time distribution models for ideal and real reactors^
  • carry out the thermal design of chemical reactors (adiabatic temperature difference, thermal instability of stirred tanks)

Subject of course

Definition of basic terms used in Chemical Process Engineering, reaction analysis - classification of reactions, preparation of material and energy balances, introduction to reactor design, single ideal reactors (stirred tank reactor, continuous stirred tank reactor, plug flow reactor), design for single reactions, performance comparison, multiple-reactor systems (reactors in series and or in parallel, mixed reactors in series, recycle reactor), laboratory methods to determine kinetic data (analysis of the complete rate equation, differential and integral method), residence time distribution of fluid in chemical reactors (age distribution of fluid leaving a reactor, F-curve), real reactor models, dispersion model, tanks in series model, multi parameter models, energy balances for isothermal and adiabatic operations in ideal reactors (adiabatic temperature, unstable state).
