WithBéla G. Lipták

Chemical reactor designs include the continuous stirred tank reactors (CSTR), the batch stirred tank reactors (BSTR), the tubular reactors, and the packed bed reactors. This chapter describes the control and optimization of the basic operating parameters of chemical reactors: pressure, temperature, endpoint, safety, and batch recipe charging.
