DISTILLATION SYSTEMS
DISTILLATION SYSTEMSDistillation systems for the separation of nonazeotropic mixtures are discussed in this subsection. Many of the results extend also to azeotropic mixtures when the desired splits do not try to break azeotropes or cross a distillation boundary.Whenever we wish to separate a mixture into multiple products, various combinatorial possibilities of column arrangements are feasible, and the optimal (usually the least expensive) column configurations are sought. For example, there are at least two possible ways of separating a ternary mixture of components A, B, and C into pure-product streams (where A is the most volatile and C the least volatile component):
