What Is the Difference between Plug and Mixed Flow Reactor?

Answer

A plug flow reactor and a mixed flow reactor are mechanical systems used to describe chemical reactions in a nonstop flowing system of cylindrical geometry. The difference between these two is that the plug flow reactor can handle rapid exothermic and endothermic reactions where as a mixed flow reactor cannot.
