reaction zone

reaction zone

[rē′ak·shən ‚zōn]
(chemical engineering)
In a catalytic reactor vessel, the location or zone within the vessel where the bulk of the chemical reaction takes place.

Among other benefits associated with the rapid vertical flow technique are the separation of sample and conjugate, which is conducive to better performance, and the "hook effect": in lateral flow, undiluted specimen will overwhelm the internal color conjugate upon reaction, prior to moving toward the reaction zone.
To ensure a dilution of the reaction zone, a portion of the flue gases is mechanically driven within cylindrical conducts into the furnace entrance.
Waste+TMS: stripping 83 96 120 50 42 57 85 Reaction Zone ratio
Such a relatively low hydrogen content was due to the extremely fast cooling rate of the products at the outlet of the reaction zone, about [10.
In order to reduce computational cost, each tube is divided into two sections, the reaction zone and the nonreaction zone (convective zone).
This phenomenon indicates that the flame propagation speed was much higher than the reaction rate, thus the reaction zone was not restricted to the flame front, but continued vigorously in the bulk behind the flame front.
4] into the reactor and by the transfer (diffusion) the sensors of magnesium into the reaction zone and magnesium dichloride from the zone, and also by the associated heat transfer processes.
IPC represents an efficient route for the generation of NC that incorporates nanoscale fillers into a polymer film as it is being formed by polymerization at a reaction zone close to the interface between two immiscible liquid phases containing the monomeric reagents, as shown in Fig.
Reaction temperature, fluid of generated hydrocarbons leaving the reaction zone [2-4], rate of heat input [5-8], particle size [9], mineral content [10] are among the most important factors that dictate the behavior of oil shale decomposition during pyrolysis.
Both reactors are based on an impinging jet design where the highly-pressurized reactant solutions are forced into narrow channels and result in collision of the streams inside the reaction zone.
The assumptions for this model is that the charges are considered homogeneous, pressure is uniform throughout the cylinder, volume occupied by the flame reaction zone is negligible, burned gas is at full thermodynamic equilibrium except for the N[O.
Furthermore, esterification is an equilibrium limited reaction and is therefore frequently carried out in a reactive distillation process to obtain higher yields of product and to increase reaction rates by removing one of the products from the reaction zone.
