Hello All. Hope you will be fine. I Am working as chemical engineer at a petrochemical plant ( acetates). We have a continous reactor of 6 tons for the esterification reaction. Sulfuric acid is used as catalyst.reactor is glass lined. we want to replace it with reactor of different material of construction. because steam consumption is very high as glass is bad conductor of heat. Reaction carried out at 104-106 C. So what do u think which Material is suitable for it ? and secondly direct steam injection through coil is best of jacketed reactor ?? any design idea if u have..plz help me out
