Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The heat transfer in an endothermic tert-butanol dehydration reaction was investigated under the condition that the temperature difference between the heat source and the heating medium was extremely small. The conversion per unit volume of catalyst is dependent on the residence time of heating medium, both in a fluidized catalyst bed and in a fixed catalyst bed. The heat flow has a maximum with the mass flow rate of heating medium. The heat flow by this reaction per unit mass flow rate of heating medium is related to the conversion.
