2.6 Multicomponent Flash Distillation

Equations (2-27) and (2-28) are solved along with the stoichiometric equations (2-31), the overall mass balance Eq. (2-5), the component mass balances,

(2-36)

and the energy balance, Eq. (2-7). Equation (2-36) is very similar to the binary mass balance, Eq. (2-6).

Usually the feed flow rate, F, and the feed mole fractions zi for C – 1 of the components will be specified. If pdrum and Tdrum or one liquid or vapor composition are also specified, then a sequential procedure can be used. That is, the mass balances, stoichiometric equations, and equilibrium equations are solved simultaneously, and then the energy ...
