**Goal 1: Design a flash drum**

How big should the drum be? What height should the nozzle be? What T and P should the drum be? What T and P should the feed be?

**Vapor-liquid equilibrium (VLE)**

Consider a binary (i.e., 2-component) system with 2-phases: What do we know? yA + yB = 1 xA + xB = 1 yA ≠ xA Tvap, Pvap yA, yB Tliq, Pliq xA, xB At equilibrium: Tvap = Tliq Pvap = Pliq Gibbs’ Phase Rule: degrees of freedom = # components (C) - # phases (P) + 2 For a binary, 2-phase system: 2 – = 2 We can specify only 2 intensive variables (all others are fixed, by VLE)

**Boiling point, dew point, bubble point**

Pure liquids have a boiling point; mixtures have a boiling range, delimited by their bubble point and dew point. 1. Consider a sub-cooled binary liquid that is 40 mol% ethanol. What is its bubble point? What is the composition of the first bubble? dew point 2. Consider a superheated binary vapor that is 40 mol% ethanol. What is its dew point? What is the composition of the first drop? boiling range bubble point xE,initial yE,initial 3. What is the boiling range of this mixture?

Useful definitions Boiling/bubble point Tbp: temperature at which the average liquid molecule has just enough kinetic energy to escape from the surface of the liquid into the gas phase Recall that kinetic energy follows a Boltzmann distribution, so molecules with higher than average kinetic energy can still escape from the surface at T < Tbp, by evaporation Saturated liquid: a liquid at its boiling/bubble point Dew point Tdp: temperature at which the average vapor molecule has just enough kinetic energy to condense Saturated vapor: a vapor at its dew point Vapor pressure: pressure at which the liquid and vapor phase are in equilibrium at a given temperature Azeotrope: a constant-boiling mixture, i.e., a mixture that behaves like a single component

**How much liquid and vapor will the flash drum produce?**

F, L and V are extensive variables mass balance method total mass balance (TMB): F = L + V component mass balance (CMB): F zA = L xA + V yA rearrange: OR inverse lever-arm method • L M V isotherm For a given F, we can now compute L and V.

7
**Specify P and one composition (xA)**

y=x VLE line always lies above y=x line if plotted for the more volatile component For a binary system at constant P, if one composition (xA or yA) is chosen, all others are fixed: T incr. K = yE/xE volatility = K = K(T, P, zi) ≈ K(T) VLE line VLE: K = yA/xA mole balance: xA + xB = 1 yA + yB = 1 azeotrope: K = 1.0 how can we “break” an azeotrope?

**Bubble point calculation for multi-component mixtures**

Trial-and-error method Given the composition of a subcooled liquid and PTOTAL, find Tbp and (yi)bp VLE: mole balance: Algorithm: Pick a temperature T and find the corresponding Ki(T) values for each component Calculate the yi value for each Ki(T) Check to see if Syi = 1 If not, pick a new temperature, repeat How to pick a temperature? How to pick the next temperature?

**To achieve rapid convergence:**

Initial guess: (weighted average of boiling points of pure components) Next guess: pick a reference component (A) find Tnext using DePriester Chart

**Relative volatility volatility relative volatility**

strong function of temperature volatility not a strong function of temperature; often assumed independent relative volatility for a binary system, substitute and rearrange:

**Bubble point calculation using relative volatility**

definition of relative volatility: solve for yi: sum: solve for Kref: Algorithm: given a solution composition (xi values), find relative volatilities (ai values), then 1. guess Tinitial 2. calculate Kref 3. find T = Tbp corresponding to Kref

16
**Ex.: Finding Tbp using relative volatilities**

Find the bubble point of a mixture of n-pentane (xP = 0.3), n-hexane (xX = 0.3) and n-heptane (xH = 0.4), at 1 atm total pressure. Find the composition of the first vapor bubble. Designate n-pentane as the reference. At 71 °C, KP = 2.8. Find Tbp corresponding to KP = 2.0 (read from DePriester Chart): Tbp = 58 °C Check:
