How to determine cylindrical wall thickness of CSTR reactor if pressure is 120 kPa and diameter of reactor is 1.5m. The CSTR Reactor is used to produce Ethyl acetate from esterification of Acetic acid and Ethanol. Operating temperature inside reactor is 75 Celsius degree.  


I'm confuse how to select material of construction and parameters like S, Ej and C according to Table 10-12 Plant Design and Economics for Chemical Engineers 5th Edition

Consider this doc extract from a ppt (web). You may need to consult the mech engineer within your organization.

Good luck
