Chemical reaction engineering is concerned with the exploitation of chemical reactions on a commercial scale. Its goal is the successful design and operation of chemical reactors. This text emphasizes qualitative arguments, simple design methods, graphical procedures, and frequent comparison of capabilities of the major reactor types. Simple ideas are treated first, and are then extended to the more complex.
An improved and simplified edition of this classic introduction to the principles of reactor design for chemical reactions of all types--homogeneous, catalytic, biochemical, gas, solid, extractive, etc. Adds new material on systems of deactivating catalysts, flow modeling and diagnosis of the ills of operating equipment, and new simple design procedures for packed bed and fluidized bed reactors.
