Unformatted text preview: 10.5.4 Reactor Design This will be carried out in the following example. Example 10-3 Fixed Bed - Packed Bed – Integral Reactor Hydrodemethylation of toluene in a packed bed reactor. Plot X, y (pressure ratio), P T , P H2 , P B as functions of catalyst weight, W. F To = 50 mol/min, P = 40 atm, T = 640 o C Feed contains 30 % T, 45 % H, 25 % I (inert) Hydrogen is in excess to prevent coking. The pressure drop parameter is 9.8 x 10-5 kg-1 . Also determine W in a CSTR if ρ cat,e = 400 kg/m 3 . Reactor Design C 6 H 5 CH 3 + H 2 C 6 H 6 + CH 4 The reaction Solution 1. Design equation To T F ' r dW dX- = 2.
