Overall what the assignment about:


2. PROJECT DESCRIPTION

2.1 The main objective of this mini project is to DESIGN THE REACTOR SYSTEM for the

production of the chemicals as assigned to each group.

2.2 The types of reactor to be designed to produce the required product will be assigned

accordingly. The design outcome must be applicable for industrial utilizations while taking into

considerations of the issues related to it.

2.3 The project requires an initial literature review on process background and the recent production

technologies.

2.4 It is utmost important to research for the reaction kinetics since the work will focus on the design

of the reactor based on this kinetics.

2.5 The design is for an ISOTHERMAL REACTOR.

2.6 The production rate of the PRODUCT is determined as assigned to each group.

2.7 The reactor analysis and sizing calculations can be executed using MICROSOFT EXCEL or any

software deemed suitable 



What to do:

PART 1 (STUDENT 1)

1. Discuss and give brief review of the common production process (At least 2).

2. Discuss advantages and disadvantages for both processes.

3. Proposed improvements on the process based on the disadvantages listed above.

4. Attach the PFD (process flow diagram).


Chemical: Toluene 

Production Rate: 5000 g/year
