Processes need heat or cooling for temperature control. Chemical reactions can be endothermic or exothermic, consuming or generating heat, respectively. The separation process of distillation requires heat to boil the “bottoms” and cooling to condense the overhead reflux. Sometimes, even mixing two different liquids can result in a change of temperature due to the heat of mixing and there are times that the temperature of a material may be raised or lowered to facilitate ...
