"The study of simultaneous heat and mass transfer in flow reactors has attracted the attention of many workers for a long time due to its wide application in the industrial field. These heat and mass transfer studies play an important role in determining the rate equations and in turn the size of the reactor itself. A large number of chemical reactions have been studied by various workers….

The purpose of this work comprised only the initial or exploratory phase of this overall project, and deals with the design, construction and assembling of the equipment necessary to carry out the vaporization of pure water in a reactor on a continuous and steady state basis. Further, the purpose of this work was to demonstrate that the necessary temperatures could be successfully measured and flow rates determined accurately enough to calculate the per cent water evaporated for different flow rates of water at fixed initial gas temperatures. No attempt has been made at this stage of the investigation to propose any rate equation for the process of evaporation of water in a gas stream under given conditions as this phase of the work is planned to be covered in a future thesis"--Introduction, pages 1-2.
