Is rinsing the reactor with water after a batch ample cleaning, or are chemical cleans necessary in between batches?
It depends, if there are no side reactions, a chemical clean is probably not necessary. Also the larger the reactor the greater the cleaning time. • Please clarify the method for deriving the rate law expressed with partial pressures. When studying catalytic reactions the rate law is developed in terms of partial pressure, e.g. . To rewrite the rate law just use ideal gas law to relate to concentrations CA and CB and then write concentration in terms of conversion. Writing partial pressures in terms of conversion • How accurate is the perfect mixing assumption in dealing with CSTRs? It seems kind of far fetched that the entire CSTR is at the same concentration as the exit. True but these are ideal CSTRs, and non ideal reactors and the perfect mixing assumption is discussed and modeled in Ch.13. Once we understand ideal reactors (perfectly mixed), we can easily model non-ideal reactors. • In a PFR or CSTR reactor, wouldn’t the reaction still be taking place in the pipe that the products
