Abstract

We investigate a new double-column batch heteroazeotropic distillation system (DCS) by rigorous simulation. Its performance is compared with that of the conventional batch rectifier (BR). For the new configuration the minimal operational time is determined. The separation of mixture isopropanol - water + cyclohexane is studied by using a professional dynamic flowsheet simulator. In the case studied we obtained better results (eg. lower specific energy consumption) with the DCS than with the BR.
