Manufacturing a polymer in a batch reactor.
Exothermic reaction wasn't the whole story
A exothermic batch reaction, to make a polymer, took place in a large stirred (constant speed) vessel (Stirred tank reactor, STR). It had a cooling system to take away the heat from the exothermic reaction. Since increased temperature strongly influenced the reaction rate, it thereby controlled the heat production. However, control of the cooling was turning out to be more difficult than expected. Something in there was changing the temperature.
I've dealt with many batch reaction processes, including some where the process has to go through repeated cycles, forcing it to meet cyclic boundary conditions so that each sucessive batch is the same. If you have a problem with the behaviour of a batch process or CSTR and would like to get a quantitative handle on it to improve yield or optimise performance, then please contact me.

design or operational problem that needs some technical support that is outside your
team's experience, some quantitative assessment of what is really the cause of the
difficulties, some design alternatives or just a fresh look by an intelligent
If you have a problem with the behaviour of a market sector, plant, process or item of equipment and would like to get a quantitative handle on it to improve yield or optimise performance, then contact me. I'm always ready to give a little time to discuss a new puzzle, in confidence, of course. We'll only worry about fees when there is some defined work. I can be flexible about how I work with you.
