Multiproduct Columns
Multiproduct ColumnsThe need to optimize the operation of multiproduct columns—specifically with the MPC technology—has raised the interest in applications of product quality inferentials so that most inferentials are applied to refinery main fractionators. The product qualities estimated with good success are related to the product distillation curve because the curve reflects the boiling point distribution of the components. Of course, the temperature measurements are the secondary variables containing much of the information concerning the distillation curve of a product. Very often, the product has to meet more than one property specification; in that case, the other property is only partially related to the distillation curve parameters. It is the case of the so-called
