Question details

1. The curve on the left below is typical for a gas-solid catalytic exothermic reaction carried out adiabatically with a flow rate FAo 4 mol/sec. 70 FAN-%) 60 50 40 30 Fluidized catolyst pellets 0 20 10 0 0 0.1 0.2 0.3 0.4 0.5 0.6 0.7 0.8 0.9 1 1.1 The diagram on the right is a fluidized CSTR for heterogeneous catalytic reaction. It is a reactor similar to CSTR, where liquid phase homogeneous reactions take place. The fluid mixes well and a constant volumetric flow rate is maintained for the feed and effluent gas. The particulate catalysts are however kept in the reactor with a screening mesh. 2.1) what is the catalyst weight necessary to achieve 80% conversion in a fluidized CSTR? 22) what is the catalyst weight necessary to achieve 80% conversion in a PBR? 2.3) Assuming that you have a fluidized CSTR and a PBR containing equal weights of catalyst, how should they be arranged for this reaction to use the smallest amount of catalyst weight and still achieve 80% conversion? 2.4) plot the rate of reaction and conversion as a function of catalyst weight, W, in a PBR. (type your data points into MS-Excel and print the plot)
