Thermal instability and runaway criteria: the dangers of disregarding dynamics

Ball, Rowena; Gray, Brian F.


Two exemplary exothermic processes, synthesis of nitroglycerine in a continuous stirred tank reactor (CSTR) and synthesis of the explosive RDX in a CSTR, are used to demonstrate the dangers of ignoring the system dynamics when defining criteria for therma
