I am trying to figure out the performance of a catalytic SO2 to SO3 reactor by using the measured outlet temperatures of the real reactor.


The reaction is exothermic.To properly dissipate the heat and obtain a high conversion in the reactor the process gas is cooled by exchanging heat with molten salts. 


There are temperature indicators at the inlet and outlet of the reactor and heat exchanger. 


I am using a Equilibrium based reaction set. Heat of reaction is known. The inlet and outlet temperature of the process gas is a given. How can I make HYSYS calculate the overall conversion based on the outlet temperature of the reactor?


Thank you

It should be a simple task for you. Try something.
