Sensitivity Analysis of an Energy-Efficient Heat Coupled Distillation Column

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this paper, an energy-efficient heat coupled distillation column (HCDC) which is industrially viable is constructed for propylene–propane mixture separation and the sensitivity analysis was performed. Some comparative studies are made with conventional distillation column (CC) and a column with a vapor recompression system (VRC). The results show that the thermal efficiency of the HCDC appears to be strongly sensitive to the compression ratio between rectification section and stripping section.
