INTRODUCTION TO DISTILLATION OPERATIONS
GENERAL PRINCIPLES Separation operations achieve their objective by the creation of two or more coexisting zones that differ in temperature, pressure, composition, and/or phase state. Each molecular species in the mixture to be separated responds in a unique way to differing environments offered by these zones. Consequently, as the system moves toward equilibrium, each species establishes a different concentration in each zone, and this results in a separation between the species. The separation operation called distillation uses vapor and liquid phases at essentially the same temperature and pr…
