## 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...

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...
