This guidebook features a collection of tutorial-style engineering articles providing useful tips and best practices for the selection, design, operation and maintenance of reactor-based systems for converting raw materials into intermediates and finished products. It also contains detailed discussion of specific reactor-driven chemical conversions that are widely used in chemical process industries (CPI) operations.

Collectively, the content provides a wealth of useful technical guidance for optimizing reactor performance, maximizing conversion rates and output, and managing instrumentation and control issues.

Several articles profile continuous stirred-tank reactors (CSTR), microreactors and millichannel reactors. Others focus on instrumentation and control issues related to reaction engineering. In addition you will be provided with useful engineering support to improve biotechnology and fermentation-related reactor systems.

Delivered in a PDF format, 139 pages.
