In other words, the length Fundamentals of Fixed-Bed Reactors 27 from the horizontal axis to the horizontal line intersecting the y-axis equals the length of the line fromÀ intersecting horizontal line to the pffiffiffiffiÁ line representing the function. At À1= vz Á5 0:032, the process is stagpffiffiffiffi nant film diffusion rate limited; at 1= vz 5 0:030, the process is pore diffusion plus reaction rate limited. We must know which resistance controls product formation before launching a catalyst or process improvement project.
