Systems with Interfacial Mass-Transfer Resistances Recently, the effect of interfacial mass-transfer resistances on the location of the attainable products of a reactive separation process was analyzed considering the simple model A + B o C 23 . The analysis was based on the calculation of the top and bottom products of a separative reactor of infinite height at infinite reflux ratio ( > , -analysis). The products of this reactor are obtained from the following equations in matrix-vector...

Industrial Applications of Reactive Distillation

Reactive Distillation

Reactive distillation RD is a combination of separation and reaction in a single vessel. The concept of combining these two important functions for enhancement of overall performance is not new to the chemical engineering world. The recovery of ammonia in the classic Solvay process for soda ash of the 1860s may be cited as probably the first commercial application of RD, as shown in Fig. 1.1. Many old processes have made use of this concept. The production of propylene oxide, ethylene...

Model 4 Mass amp heat transport S reaction kinetics at these stages. Reaction kinetics are the same as in Model 2, Murphree efficiencies are used to give the desired separation capacity. In the rate-based approach Model 4 heat and mass transfer are directly taken into account using two-film theory. Multicomponent diffusion is modeled with the Maxwell-Stefan equations. Bulk reaction kinetics are included as in Models 2 and 3. Obviously, parameterizing these models meaningfully requires a very...
