Since the dawn of modern-day science, chemical reactors have been regarded as the heart of chemical processes. A chemical reactor is a piece of enclosed equipment, made from metal (often high resistant alloys or stainless steel) in which chemical reactions are contained and controlled. They vary in size from small test-tubes in the lab to industrial-size reactors, in which complex heat and mass transfers occur amidst computerized provisions of safety and control. Over time, reactor designs have improved to enhance operation efficiency, and reduce significant costs, thereby increasing revenue potential in the long-term. When classified according to the mode of operation, three basic types of reactor models exist that estimate the important aspects of process variables of different chemical reactions. These include the batch reactor, the continuous reactor, and the semi-batch reactor.
