15 6.2.1 General Design Considerations 1. Entering gas (liquid) flow rate, composition, temperature, and pressure 2. Desired degree of recovery of one or more solutes 3. Choice of absorbent (stripping agent) 4. Operating pressure and temperature, and allowable gas pressure drop 5. Minimum absorbent (stripping agent) flow rate and actual absorbent (stripping agent) flow rate as a multiple of the minimum rate needed to make the separation Design or analysis of an absorber (or stripper) requires consideration of a number of factors, including: 6. Number of equilibrium stages 7. Heat effects and need for cooling (heating) 8. Type of absorber (stripper) equipment 9. Height of absorber (stripper) 10. Diameter of absorber (stripper)

16 SUMMARY 1. Rigorous methods are readily available for computer-solution of equilibrium- based models for multicomponent, multistage absorption, stripping, distillation, and liquid-liquid extraction. 2. The equilibrium-based model for a countercurrent-flow cascade provides for multiple feeds, vapor side streams, liquid side streams, and intermediate heat exchangers. Thus, the model can handle almost any type of column configuration. 3. The model equations include component material balances, total material balances, phase equilibria relations, and energy balances. 4. Some or all of the model equations can usually he grouped so as to obtain tridiagonal matrix equations, for which an efficient solution algorithm is available. 5. Widely used methods for iteratively solving all of the model equations are the bubble-point (BP) method, the sum-rales (SR) method, the simultaneous correction (SO method, and the inside-out method.

17 6. The BP method is generally restricted to distillation problems involving narrow-boiling feed mixtures. 7. The SR method is generally restricted to absorption and stripping problems involving wide-boiling feed mixtures or in the ISR form to extraction problems. 8. The SC and inside-out methods are designed to solve any type of column configuration for any type of feed mixture. Because of its computational efficiency, the inside-oi method is often the method of choice; however, it may fail to converge when highly! nonideal liquid mixtures are involved, in which case the slower SC method should j be tried. Both methods permit considerable flexibility in specifications. 9. When both the SC and inside-out methods fail, resort can be made to the much slower relaxation and continuation methods.
