PETROLEUM AND COMPLEX-MIXTURE DISTILLATION
PETROLEUM AND COMPLEX-MIXTURE DISTILLATIONAlthough the principles of multicomponent distillation apply to petroleum, synthetic crude oil, and other complex mixtures, this subject warrants special consideration for the following reasons: Such feedstocks are of exceedingly complex composition, consisting of, in the case of petroleum, many different types of hydrocarbons and perhaps of inorganic and other organic compounds. The number of carbon atoms in the components may range from 1 to more than 50, so the compounds may exhibit atmospheric-pressure boiling points from −162°C (−259°F) to more than 538°C (1000°F). In a given boiling range, the number of different compounds that exhibit only small diffe…
