Upon taking the average of the local transport equation with a homogeneous first-order chemical reaction, a differential equation is obtained for the mean concentration over the channel section in the form of an infinite asymptotic series. Estimates are executed showing that we can limit ourselves to terms of third order or even second order for not-too-high reaction rates in the averaged transport equation; however, additional connective and source-like terms appear here in the equations. The theory is confirmed by an experiment in a 3.4-m operating chemical reactor.
