11.6 Synthesis of Distillation Systems for Nonideal Ternary Systems

In the previous section we developed heuristics for synthesis of distillation sequences for almost ideal systems; unfortunately, many of these heuristics do not apply to nonideal systems. Instead, we must use a different set of operational suggestions and the tools developed in section 8.5, distillation and residue curves. The purpose of the operational suggestions is to first develop a feasible separation scheme and then work to improve it.

Heuristics for nonideal systems have not been formalized and agreed upon to the same degree as for ideal systems. The following operational suggestions are from Biegler et al. (1997), Doherty and Malone (2001), Doherty et al. (2008), and ...
