You have been put in charge of the conceptual design for a process whereby A → 2B, a second order liquid phase reaction that occurs isothermally at 340K and isobarically at 2 bar. Due to budget constraints, you have to make use of old equipment already on site. In this case, you have a 90L CSTR and a 70L PFR available to you. What is the maximum possible conversion for this system, given:
FAo = 2.5mol/min
CAo = 0.40mol/L
kA = 0.50Lmol-1min-1
The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and the question is about an isothermal at 340K and isobarical reaction at 2 bar. A 90L CSTR and 70 L PFR are available and we need to determine the maximum possible conversion for this system.
