100 m3/hr of normal butane at 25°C and 1 atm is combusted with stoichiometic amount of air in a well-insulated reactor. The hot gases are sent to a heat exchanger to provide the required heat for steam generation in a power plant. Unreacted butane is recycled back to the process as shown in the diagram below.
If the single pass conversion is 30 % determine the amount of butane and oxygen that is recycled.
The question belongs to Chemistry and it discusses about stochiometric reaction of combusting butane gas for heat exchange and calculating the amount of butane and oxygen recycled in the conversion.
