Is desired to evaluate the design of a reactor for the production of allyl chloride according to the main reaction.
The reaction mixture containing 4 mol of propylene per mole of chlorine and get into the reactor at 392 F at a rate of 0.85 lbmol/h. The operating pressure can be assumed constant and equal to the feed with a value of 29.4 psia. Initially it is expected to use a tubular reactor with 2-in. of inside diameter, jacketed and working with boiling ethylene glycol as a coolant, so that the temperature inside is getting constant at 392 0F. The heat transfer coefficient inside is 5
