SHORTCUT CALCULATIONS Shortcut calculations can be quite useful to the process designer or run-plant engineer; they may be used to outline process requirements (stream and equipment sizes) early in a design project, to check the output of a process simulation program for reasonableness, to help analyze or troubleshoot a unit operating in the manufacturing plant or pilot plant, or to help explain performance trends and relationships between key process variables. In some applications involving dilute or even moderately concentrated feeds, they also may be used to specify the final design of an extraction process. In carrying out such calculations, L. A.
