Stage separation theory
Abstract
The theory is developed starting with the stage separation factor definition, the value function, and the separative capacity of a separation stage. Tables of the value function are given. Rayleigh distillation and the separative work involved are described. Rayleigh distillation tables are included. The separative capacity of an element of column length in a continuous countercurrent column process and the reversible, isothermal work of separation are discussed. Cascade design is then discussed in detail, first developing the ideal cascade, and afterwards the squaredoff cascade concepts. Finally the continuous separation process is explained. Several illustrative problems are presented.
