New column configurations for pressure swing batch distillation I. Feasibility studies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The feasibility of the pressure swing distillation in different batch column configurations is investigated. The method is based on the assumption of maximal separation. Besides studying the well known batch configurations (rectifier, stripper, middle vessel column) we also suggest two novel configurations such as double column batch rectifier and double column batch stripper. We also study the alternate application of a rectifier and a stripper.
