Kinetics

kineticsProcess understanding is heavily dependent on rates. Kinetics are the primary factor chemical engineers rely on when scaling up chemical processes. Kinetics are mainly dependent on concentration, temperature, and catalyst. We utilize kinetic data to support process models for batch scaleup and continuous processes. Kinetic data supports sizing of chemical reactors, developing process cycle times, and generating cost estimates for manufactured goods. When applied in a process model, kinetic data can be used to generate optimized dosing strategies, reagent stoichiometry, reactor configurations, and heat transfer requirements.
