This subject introduces students to aspects of reactor system design. Topics covered include ideal batch and flow reactors, the approximation of reaction systems using combinations of plug flow reactors and continuously stirred tank reactors. Also covered are the use of multiple reactors of identical and differing sizes, temperature effects on both non-adiabatic and adiabatic operation and issues associated with temperature instability. Non-ideal flow in reactors is also covered including residence time distributions, tracer tests, conversion in non-ideal reactors, micromixing and macromixing
