SIMULATION OF DISTILLATION PROCESSES
SIMULATION OF DISTILLATION PROCESSESChemical engineers have been solving distillation problems by using the equilibrium-stage model since 1893 when Sorel outlined the concept to describe the distillation of alcohol. Since that time, it has been used to model a wide variety of distillation-like processes, including simple distillation (single-feed, two-product columns), complex distillation (multiple-feed, multiple-product columns), extractive and azeotropic distillation, petroleum distillation, absorption, liquid-liquid extraction, stripping, and supercritical extraction.Real distillation processes, however, nearly always operate away from equilibrium. In recent years it has become possible to simulate distillatio…
