Question details

4. Before building a large (and expensive) industrial reactor, a smaller pilot scale reactor system is often used to test reaction kinetics and conditions. Then the pilot system is scaled up to full size. For this problem a small pilot plant reactor was used to test the first order reaction A- 2B. The pilot reactor was a 30 ff CSTR. For an inlet flow rate of 5 gal/min, conversion was 75%. The production scale reactor will operate at the same temperature, use the same feed, and needs to achieve a conversion of 90%. For a desired inlet flow rate of 200 gal/min, what size does the reactor need to be? Explain your answer (a) 30 ft3 (b) 1200 ft (c) 1440 ft (d) 3600 ft (e) unable to determine
