SUMMARY
This report is about the production ethyl acetate by the esterification reaction of acetic
acid and ethanol. Both components are in aqueous solution; the acetic acid is 96% pure and
ethanol is 96.5% pure. The reactants are fed to a CSTR at 75
0
C. The products are also
at 75
0
In the CSTR calculation which is the main part of the report, six-blade turbine is
chosen, and the motor power was calculated as 4.441 kW . A CSTR, most commonly, is
heated by either a jacket or an internal coil. In jacket calculations heat transfer area was found
as 6.36 m

Finally, the number of coils was calculated as 6. Necessary calculations for both jacket and
coil were performed and the necessary comparisons were made in discussion part.
