Analytical Kvalue Correlations

The widespread availability and utilization of digital computers for distillation calculations have given impetus to the development of analytical expressions for K values. McWilliams [Chem. Eng., 80(25), 138 (1973)] presents a regression equation and accompanying regression coefficients that represent the DePriester charts of Fig. 13-14. Regression equations and coefficients for various versions of the GPA convergence-pressure charts are available from the GPA.
