The Simulation of Poly Reactors and Chain-Analyzing Method in Material Engineering


Article Preview

One or a series of continuous stirred tank reactors (CSTR) is adopted in material engineering. The first esterification reactor and the final stage polyeondensation reactor are very significant,which operation affect the quality of output directly. The influence of operational variables is discussed separately. Toward the final stage Polycondensation reactor,it is regarded as ten CSTR s and obtain approximatively the figure of each component along with shaft. In the“chain-analyzing method”, Polymer is regarded as many chains. It is not the Polymer but the chain that is regarded as the component of the system. so the model treats the calculation of the reaction rates,the mass balance and the heat balance in the Polymer reaction as easily as in the reaction of low-molecular-weight substances
