<emphasis role="bold">REACTOR CONCEPTS</emphasis>Since a primary purpose of a reactor is to provide desirable conditions for reaction, the reaction rate per unit volume of reactor is important in analyzing or sizing a reactor. For a given production rate, it determines the reactor volume required to effect the desired transformation. The residence time in a reactor is inversely related to the term space velocity (defined as volumetric feed rate/reactor volume). The fraction of reactants converted to products and by-products is the conversion. The fraction of desired product in the material conver…
