flow reactor

flow reactor

[′flō rē‚ak·tər]
(chemical engineering)
A dynamic reactor system in which reactants flow continuously into the vessel and products are continuously removed, in contrast to a batch reactor.

In addition, the solutions offered can handle both loop and plug flow reactor models.
However, the heat within a batch or flow reactor isn't necessarily constant, and the chemical reaction is unlikely to be the only source of heat.
CPRI is committed to further develop the process using continuous flow reactor technology to improve the manufacturing efficiency, and reduce the cost for commercial production.
Early gas turbine combustors were modeled by [30] in the 1950s as an arrangement of a perfectly stirred reactor (PSR) for the high-intensity primary zone of the combustor, followed by a plug flow reactor (PFR) for the burnout zone of the combustor.
However, near and inside the 90[degrees] connectors and the union segments, the velocity field presents low- and high-velocity zones due to the inherent CPC geometry, showing that the CPC cannot be considered as an ideal plug flow reactor. Identical patterns (not shown herein) were obtained for the other inflow velocities, 17.6 and 24.4 cm x [s.sup.-1].

The problem, Cadien notes, is that deposition occurs within a flow reactor characterized by an A-B cycle, the first step being millisecond-scale pulses of precursor and the second a reactant pulse of oxygen (for growing oxides).
The purpose of the present paper is to study a mathematical model concerning Reverse Flow Reactor (referred to as RFR) used for catalytic oxidation of lean methane emission.
In an article published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences titled "Solar photothermochemical alkane reverse combustion," the researchers demonstrate that the one-step conversion of carbon dioxide and water into liquid hydrocarbons and oxygen can be achieved in a photothermochemical flow reactor operating at 180 to 200 C and pressures up to 6 atmospheres.
Plug Flow Reactor (PFR) model is chosen for reactor design to carry out the POM reaction.
