E. More Complex Problems

E1. Two feeds containing water (W) and nitromethane (NM) are to be separated in a system with two distillation columns and a liquid-liquid separator. Feed F1 = 100 kmol/h of a saturated liquid feed that is 8 mol% nitromethane and 92 mol% water is fed to column W that produces a water product that is 0.01 mole fraction NM. The boilup ratio in column W is Image. The optimum feed stage is used. The vapor from column W is condensed and sent to a decanter. The water phase from the decanter, which is 0.086 mole fraction NM, is refluxed to column W. The NM phase from the decanter (0.312 mole fraction water) is sent to column NM as ...
