Abstract: Abstract A model for the phase distribution and evolution of the heterogeneous (suspension) polymerization of vinyl chloride is presented. Experimental information on pressure, temperature, and conversion has been obtained from a 34 liter bench reactor reproducing reaction conditions and product properties typical of industrial operation. A calculation procedure based on simple plant data is proposed for the description of the phase compositions and their evolution over the entire process. Results based on cl…
