Reactor Cooling and Heating Systems – Part 2

Whether the secondary loop uses coil or jacket inlet or outlet temperature is often a matter of tradition for a particular company or process industry. The dynamic response of the cascade control system to reactant disturbances such as feed and reaction rate are the same for jacket inlet and outlet temperature control. However, the coil or …

Reactor Cooling and Heating Systems – Part 1

The cooling and heating system is critical for reactors since temperature plays such a huge role in determining reaction rate and selectivity (formation of desired product).  The limit to what a valve position controller (VPC) can do to increase production rate depends upon the capability of the cooling and heating system. The system can also be the …
