1
Complex Distillation Column By: Dr. Gerardo Ruiz LPPD UIC 10/22/2008

2
Complex Distillation Column Optimal complex column configuration is estimated to harness energy savings up to 70% Difference Point Equation Model Ternary System Examples Conclusion

3
Complex Distillation Column This complex column has two feed streams and three product streams Constant molar overflow is assumed in all sections of the column Constant volatility Isobaric process

4
Difference point equation The compositions and flow rates at the top of the section are know Doing a mass balance: Expressing the x n composition in terms of x n+1, by expanding it as a first order Taylor series

5
Difference Point Equation Rearranging the mass balance, and defining The difference point equation is:

6
Degree of Freedom Analysis Variables: 10 + 5*3 = 25 Equations: 9, equations (1) to (9) Design Specifications: 6 Problem Specification: 10 DOF=25 – 9 – 6 - 10 = 0

7
Equations

8
Solution Strategy A design is feasible if and only if the composition profiles between the neighboring two sections intersect the composition at each end of column section must be known
