SOLIDS REACTORS
SOLIDS REACTORSReactions of solids are typically feasible only at elevated temperatures. High temperatures are achieved by direct contact with combustion gases. Often, the product of reaction is a gas. The gas has to diffuse away from the reactant, sometimes through a solid product. Thermal and mass-transfer resistances are major factors in the performance of solids reactors. There are a number of commercial processes that use solids reactors. Reactor analysis and design appear to rely on empirical models that are used to fit the kinetics of solids decomposition. Most of the information on commercial reactors is proprietary.General references on solids reactions include Brown, Dollimore, and Galwey ("Reactions in the Solid State," in Comprehensi…
