Batch Reactive Distillation Bread

Reactive Distillation processes combine the benefits of traditional unit operations with a substantial progress in reducing capital and operating costs and environmental impact BP Review, 1997 Taylor and Krishna, 2000 . Traditionally, as in many chemical industries, reaction and separation take place separately Figure 9.1 in a batch reactor followed by a batch distillation column Charalambides et al., 1994 . Therefore, the distillation of desired species cannot influence the conversion of the...

Batch Distillation Picture

Representation of Design, Operations and Separations Duties 7.3.1.1. Design and Operation Decision Variables It is aimed to optimally design a batch column capable of processing M number of feed mixtures, each mixture constituted of NCm number of components Multiple Separation Duties, Figure 7.3 . The most important variables characterising a batch column design are the still capacity B0 , the number of theoretical stages N and the vapour boilup rate V . The latter can be used to obtain...

WV 1 to Total mass balance The other equations for the reboiler are same as equations V.16-V.24 where j is replaced by N. Cuille and Reklaitis 1986 and Albet et al. 1991 used similar model to simulate batch reactive distillation process. Egly et al. 1979 , Reuter et al. 1989 , Mujtaba 1989 and Mujtaba and Macchietto 1992, 1997 used a modified version of this model based on constant molar holdup in their studies.

inequality constraint model equations, equality constraints initial conditions, equality constraints inequality constraints where C is the conversion of the limiting reactant, xD tf is the composition of distillate at the end of the operation tf , r i is the reflux ratio as a function of time t . Solution method for such optimisation problem has been discussed earlier. Note that other types of dynamic optimisation problems such as minimum time, maximum profit, etc. could also be formulated and...

Design And Operation Optimisation

There are many papers in the literature dealing with the optimisation of the operation of batch distillation for a given column design and for a single separation duty Farhat et al. 1990 Bernot et al., 1991, 1993 Logsdon and Biegler, 1993 Mujtaba and Macchietto, 1993 . However, the design of batch columns has attracted much less attention. The main design parameters Al-Tuwaim and Luyben, 1991 are the Number of stages plates in the column Still capacity batch size Reboiler and condenser size...

Column Configurations

Conventional Column Configuration In this configuration, the available separation section tray or packed is utilised in rectifying mode, with product cuts recovered and intermediate off-cut fractions disposed of or recycled collected as condensed distillate. A final residue bottom fraction may also be a desired product. Conventional column configuration has been discussed in section 1.4 of Chapter 1. Further details are given in later chapters. 2.2. Unconventional Column Configurations...

Quasi-steady State Off-cut Recycle Strategy in Binary Batch Distillation Mayur et al. measured the benefits of recycling in terms of a potential reduction in batch time. However the benefits may be measured Mujtaba, 1989 as follows 1. Reduction in batch time For a given fresh feed and a given separation, the column performance is measured in terms of minimum batch time required to achieve a desired separation specified top product purity x D and bottom product purity x B2 for binary...
