## 3. Review: Optimum Feed Temperature

L14-3Review: Optimum Feed Temperature

For reversible, exothermic rxns, optimize feed temperature to maximize XA

High T0: moves XA,EB line to the right. Rxn reaches equilibrium fast, but low XA

Low T0 would give high XA,e but the specific reaction rate k is so small that most

of the reactant passes through the reactor without reacting (never reach XA,e)

## 4. Review: Interstage Cooling

L14-4Review: Interstage Cooling

Adiabatic operation of each reactor simplifies the energy balance

Higher feed temp- reaction reaches equilibrium quickly but XA,e is low

Lower feed temp- higher XA,e but reaction rate is too slow to be practical

Cooling between reactors shifts XA,EB line to the left, increasing XA

## 12. Review: Nonisothermal CSTR

L14-12Review: Nonisothermal CSTR

Isothermal CSTR: feed temp = temperature inside the CSTR

Case 1: Given FA0, CA0, A, E, Cpi, H°I, and XA, calculate T & V

a) Solve TEB for T at the exit (Texit = Tinside reactor)

b) Calculate k = Ae-E/RT where T was calculated in step a

c) Plug the k calculated in step b into the design equation to calculate VCSTR

Case 2: Given FA0, CA0, A, E, Cpi, H°I, and V, calculate T & XA

a) Solve TEB for T as a function of XA

b) Solve CSTR design equation for XA as a function of T (plug in k = Ae-E/RT )

c) Plot XA,EB vs T & XA,MB vs T on the same graph. The intersection of these 2

lines is the conditions (T and XA) that satisfies the energy & mass balance

XA,EB = conversion determined from the TEB equation

XA,MB = conversion determined using the design equation

• Intersections are the T and XA that satisfy both the mass balance and

energy balance

• Multiple sets of conditions are possible for the same rxn in the same

reactor with the same inlet conditions!

Reactor must operate near one of these steady statesthis requires knowledge of their stability!

3 steady states satisfy the TEB and BMB

Suppose a disturbance causes the reactor T to drift to a T between SS1 & SS2

Suppose a disturbance causes the reactor T to drift to a T between SS2 & SS3

Suppose a disturbance causes the reactor T to drop below SS1

Suppose a disturbance causes the reactor T to rise above SS3

SS1 and SS3 are locally stable (return to them after temp pulse)

SS2 is an unstable- do not return to SS2 if there is a temp pulse
