Operating line of stripping section

From a total mass balance around the system in Figure 2.20, Ls = Vs + B. Therefore, Ls — Vs = B. Substituting into equation (2.29) gives:

Therefore, the operating line can be easily placed on an x-y diagram by simply drawing a straight line with slope (Ls/Vs), starting at xB on the 45° line (see Figure 2.21).
