viscosity considerations


You decide to satisfy the basic task via a batch reactor.

You find out that it takes Tp=30 min to prepare the ingredients in the reactor, and mix them. And it takes Tc=25min to clean the reactor after each batch. You are given the constraint that the work at the reactor is limited to one shift (8 hours).

  • BRM-Batch-1: What is the size of the reactor that would satisfy the production requirement?
  • BRM-Batch-2: You consider using two same-size reactors in parallel. What should be their size?
  • BRM-Batch-3: How many reactors in parallel should you use for the output to be continuous?
  • BRM-Batch-4: List the pro and con arguments for a single vs. the multiple reactors options?
