Binary Distillation

Binary Distillation
Model Continuous Distillation Equipment in the Industry as well as Flash & Batch Separation Processes in Binary Systems
Binary Distillation

What Will I Learn?
Understand the Principles behind Binary Distillation
Design & Operate Flashing, and Flash Drums via Flash Distillation of Binary Mixtures
Understand and apply the principles and methods for simple distillation of binary mixtures
Understand Continuous Distillation Equipment
Model Distillations of Binary Systems
Apply McCabe-Thiele Method for Continuous Distillation Column Design (Number of Stages)
Simulate several process, specially continuous and batch distillation of binary mixtures
Get to know the "Recycle Ratio", "Reboiler Duty", "Feed Stage" etc...
Model Stripping and Enriching Sections of a Distillation Column

Mass Transfer Basics
Transport Phenomena
Mass and Energy Balances
Physical Chemistry

Gas Absorption is one of the very first Mass Transfer Unit Operations studied in early process engineering. It is very important in several Separation Processes, as it is used extensively in the Chemical industry.

Understanding the concept behind Gas-Gas and Gas-Liquid mass transfer interaction will allow you to understand and model Absorbers, Strippers, Scrubbers, Washers, Bubblers, etc...

We will cover:

REVIEW: Of Mass Transfer Basics (Equilibrium VLE Diagrams, Volatility, Raoult's Law, Azeotropes, etc..)

Distillation Theory

Application of Distillation in the Industry

Counter-Current Operation

Several equipment to Carry Gas-Liquid Operations

Bubble, Spray, Packed and Tray Column equipment

Flash Distillation & Flash Drums Design

Design & Operation of Tray Columns

Number of Ideal Stages: McCabe Thiele Method & Ponchon Savarit Method


Condenser types: partial, total

Pressure drop due to trays

Design & Operation of Packed Columns

Pressure drop due to trays

Efficiency of Stages & Murphree's Efficency

Batch Distillation, the Raleigh Equation

Software Simulation for Absorption/Stripping Operations (ASPEN PLUS/HYSYS)

Solved-Problem Approach:

All theory is backed with exercises, solved problems, and proposed problems for homework/individual study.

At the end of the course:

You will be able to understand mass transfer mechanism and processes behind Binary Distillation in Flash, Continuous & Batch Processes. You will be able to continue with a Multi-Component Distillation, Reactive Distillation and Azeotropic Distillation as well as more Mass Transfer Unit Operation Courses and/or Separation Processes Course.

About your instructor:

I majored in Chemical Engineering with a minor in Industrial Engineering back in 2012.

I worked as a Process Design/Operation Engineer in INEOS Koln, mostly on the petrochemical area relating to naphtha treating. There I designed and modeled several processes relating separation of isopentane/pentane mixtures, catalytic reactors and separation processes such as distillation columns, flash separation devices and transportation of tank-trucks of product.

Who is the target audience?
Chemical Engineers refreshing their Mass Transfer and Separation Processes course
Students on the relevant fields (chemical, mechanical, process engineering)
Engineers working with Distillation Columns / Flash Drums
Process Separation Engineer
