Statistical analysis of material balance of a chemical reactor

Authors


Abstract

A method is suggested for a complex statistical treatment of the material balance of a chemical reactor, based on the stoichiometric characteristics of reactions taking place in the reactor. Statistically adjusted values of the balance variables are obtained, and the hypothesis that the material balance data do not contain gross errors is tested. The calculation procedure is demonstrated by an illustrative example of the material balance of a fermentation process.
