SINGLE-STAGE EQUILIBRIUM FLASH CALCULATIONS
SINGLE-STAGE EQUILIBRIUM FLASH CALCULATIONSThe simplest continuous distillation process is the adiabatic single-stage equilibrium flash process pictured in Fig. 13-13. Feed temperature and the pressure drop across the valve are adjusted to vaporize the feed to the desired extent, while the drum provides disengaging space to allow the vapor to separate from the liquid. The expansion across the valve is at constant enthalpy, and this fact can be used to calculate T2 (or T1 to give a desired T2).
