Abstract

For heterogeneous batch distillation a new double column configuration operating in closed system is suggested. This configuration is investigated by feasibility studies based on the assumption of maximal separation and is compared with the traditional batch rectifier. The calculations are performed for a binary (n-butanol-water) and for a ternary heteroazeotropic mixture (isopropanol-water+benzene as entrainer).
