Process Intensification in Microreactors
The present disclosure provides for a chemical reactor which includes elongate chambers defining an arrangement and including first, second, and third elongate chambers adapted to support respective distinct first, second, and third reactor functions associated with respective first, second, and third process feeds, and a distributor arranged in fluidic communication with each of the elongate chambers and for connecting the elongate chambers to at least one fluid source. The distributor is dimensioned to produce a two-dimensional radial distribution of fluidic flow through the first, second, and third elongate chambers with respect to the first, second, and third process feeds. The chemical reactor may further include a monolith catalyst support including an NxM array of channels including the elongated chambers. The elongate chambers and the distributor may manifest an interchangeable cartridge-based system wherein the arrangement of the elongate chambers is selectably detachable from the distributor and replaceable.
