Improving Methods of Adding Reactants

The purpose of this option is to make the reactant concentrations closer to the ideal before the feed enters the reactor. This change helps avoid the secondary reactions which form unwanted by-products. Part (a) in Figure 3.10.2 shows the wrong way to add reactants. The ideal concentration probably does not exist anywhere in this reactor. A consumable catalyst should be diluted in one of the feed streams (one which does not react in the presence of the catalyst). Part (b) in Figure 3.10.2 shows one approach of improving the addition of reactants using three inline static mixers.
