Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chemical reactors—control should be considered during design

Chemical Reactor Design and Control uses process simulators like Matlab®, Aspen Plus, and Aspen Dynamics to study the design of chemical reactors and their dynamic control. There are numerous books that focus on steady-state reactor design. There are no books that consider practical control systems for real industrial reactors. This unique reference addresses the simultaneous design and control of chemical reactors. After a discussion of reactor basics, it:

  • Covers three types of classical reactors: continuous stirred tank (CSTR), batch, and tubular plug flow

  • Emphasizes temperature control and the critical impact of steady-state design on the dynamics and stability of reactors

  • Covers chemical reactors and control problems in a plantwide environment

  • Incorporates numerous tables and shows step-by-step calculations with equations

  • Discusses how to use process simulators to address diverse issues and types of operations

This is a practical reference for chemical engineering professionals in the process industries, professionals who work with chemical reactors, and students in undergraduate and graduate reactor design, process control, and plant design courses.

Book News Annotation:

With coverage of classical reactors, including continuous stirred tank (CSTR), batch and tubular plug flow systems and emphasis on temperature control and steady-state design on the dynamics and stability of reactors, Luyben (chemical engineering, Lehigh U.) describes how to use process simulator software for both design and control. He gives the basics of reactors, including the fundamentals of kinetics and reaction equilibrium and types and fundamental properties of reactors, steady-state design of CSTR systems and their control, control of batch reactors, steady-state design of tubular reactor systems and their control, heat exchanger reactor systems, and control of special types of industrial reactors, including polymerization reactors, fluidized catalytic crackers, gasifiers, pulp digesters, slurry reactors, microscale reactors and biochemical reactors.
