1. A hydrocarbon pyrolysis reactor, the reactor comprising:
a housing enclosing an interior region and having one or more insulation components disposed adjacent to the housing;
a plurality of input means configured to manage the flow of one or more streams into the interior region from a location external to the interior region;
one or more process flow components configured to manage the flow of fluids through the interior region, wherein the one or more process flow components comprise (i) a first bed packing having a first plurality of flow passages and a first wetted area av1; (ii) a second bed packing having a second plurality of flow passages and a second wetted area av2, wherein the ratio of the second wetted area av2 to the first wetted area av1 is ≤0.75; and (iii) a third bed packing having a third plurality of flow passages and a third wetted area av3, wherein the ratio of the third wetted area av3 to the second wetted area av2 is ≤0.75.
