APPROXIMATE MULTICOMPONENT DISTILLATION METHODS
APPROXIMATE MULTICOMPONENT DISTILLATION METHODSSome approximate calculation methods for the solution of multicomponent, multistage separation problems continue to serve useful purposes even though computers are available to provide more rigorous solutions. The available phase equilibrium and enthalpy data may not be accurate enough to justify the longer rigorous methods. Or in extensive design and optimization studies, a large number of cases can be worked quickly and cheaply by an approximate method to define roughly the optimum specifications, which can then be investigated more exactly with a rigorous method.Two approximate multicomponent shortcut methods for simple distillation are the Smith-Brinkley (SB) method, which is based on an a…
