Abstract

This study deals with nonlinear phenomena, such as state multiplicity and instability, in Reactor-Separator-Recycle (RSR) systems involving multi-reactions, as well as with reactor design and plantwide control issues. One typical scheme is studied, the parallel / consecutive reaction: A + B → P; A + P → R, both reactants being recycled. The analysis is presented in term of dimensionless numbers, as plant Damköhler number and ratio of kinetic constants. A set of design guidelines that should be considered during the conceptual stage of recycle systems has been formulated. An industrial case study confirms the theoretical analysis.
