Abstract:In part I a model and criteria have been developed for the safe design and operation of cooled tubular reactors for multiple reactions of the parallel type. In this Part II the model is extended to parallel reactions with an arbitrary stoichiometry. The results are applied to the industrial process of the ethylene oxidation with pure oxygen. It is shown that the criteria derived in part I lead to useful guidelines for the design and operation of an ethylene oxide reactor.
