Unformatted text preview: 1 Chemical Reaction Engineering - Musgrave Unsteady State Operations Lecture 14 - Page 1 Outline: Unsteady State Operations (Fogler 4.10) Next Time: (Fogler 5.1-5.2) 1. The Algorithm for Data Analysis (Fogler 5.1) 2. Batch Reactor Data (Fogler 5.2) Chemical Reaction Engineering - Musgrave Unsteady State Operation Lecture 14 - Page 2 When a CSTR is started, how long does it take to reach steady-State? Normally we avoid start-up and stopping of CSTR processes - so unsteady -state operation is unusual. However, well analyze its start-up as follows: CRE Algorithm 1. Unsteady state mole balance 2. Rate law 3. Stoichiometry 4. Combine relationships 5. Evaluate expression Analytically ( if 0 th or 1 st order ) Numerically ( if higher than 1 st order or to check ) Graphically 2 Chemical Reaction Engineering - Musgrave Unsteady State Operation Lecture 14 - Page 3 F j0 F j Mole Balance: 1. MBE encloses system 2. Assumptions/Conditions a. Not steady-state dr A dV = 3. Determine mole balance expression F A F A + r A dV V = dN A dt In - Out + Generation = Accumulation Substitute in r j is constant: dN A dt b. Perfect mixing - r j is the same throughout the reactor volume F A F A + r A V = dN A dt And use: V i To obtain: F j = C j C A C A t ( ) + r A = dC A dt V C A C A + r A V = V d N A V dt And: Chemical Reaction Engineering - Musgrave Unsteady State Operation Lecture 14 - Page 4 F j0 F j 2.
