Chemical Reaction Engineering (CRE) is a subject that is readily adapted to solving problems through algorithms rather than memorization of the numerous equations for each reactor type. In this webinar, an algorithm is presented for the design of chemical reactors with heat effects. User-friendly forms of the energy balance equations for single reactions are given for Batch Reactors (BRs), Plug Flow Reactors (PFRs) and Continuous Stirred Tank Reactors (CSTRs).

The application of these equations to reactors operating adiabatically and also with heat exchange is discussed along with a case study of a runaway reaction and explosion.

Isothermal Reactor Design is discussed in Chemical Reaction Engineering Part One, which can also be viewed in the ChemE On Demand archive.
