A rigorous model for staged high purity distillation based on rst principles is developped. The importance of the tray hydraulics to obtain good agreement between simulation and experiment is demonstrated. Analytical expressions to derive the hydraulic time constants l, v and the vapor constant for models with simpli ed tray hydraulics are presented. The(More)
The multi®essel batch distillation column, as well as con®entional batch distillation, ( ) can be operated in a closed total reflux mode where the products are collected in ®essels along the column. A pre®iously proposed and simulated feedback control strategy for the closed operation is to indirectly adjust the ®essel holdups by using the reflux flow out(More)
In a previous paper (Johnsen et al., 2015) and presentation (Johnsen et al., 2016), we developed and demonstrated a generic modelling framework for the modelling of direct precipitation fouling from multi-component fluid mixtures that become super-saturated at the wall. The modelling concept involves the 1-dimensional transport of the fluid species through(More)
