Currently employed short-cut design techniques have a tendency to be configuration-specific. Few can be applied to complex distillation configurations. In this work, we will demonstrate, in detail, the use of column profile maps (CPMs) for the comprehensive analysis and design of complex distillation systems by applying the CPM technique to the design of the fully thermally coupled (Petlyuk) distillation column at sharp-split conditions. It is shown that, for set product composition… CONTINUE READING
