Distillation is a major separation technique practised in the food, chemical, pharmaceutical, petrochemical, petroleum refining, gas and alcohol industries. Because of its low cost and high potential for better thermodynamic efficiency, it is likely to remain the most common method of separation in these industries. This book is a companion volume to Distillation Operation, and it aims to continue the updated account of this evolving separation process. It loooks at process and equipment design procedures, practical limitations and solutions to typical problems. Each chapter ends with sections on nomenclature and references.
