14.6 Application to Other Separations

The McCabe-Thiele and Kremser methods can be applied to analyze other separation processes. Adsorption, chromatography, and ion exchange are occasionally operated in counter current columns. In some situations crystallization can be analyzed as an equilibrium stage separation. The application of the McCabe-Thiele procedure in these cases is explored by Wankat (1990).

The McCabe-Thiele and Kremser methods have also been applied to analyze less common separation methods. A modification of the McCabe-Thiele method has been applied to parametric pumping, which is a cyclic adsorption or ion exchange process (Grevillot and Tondeur, 1977). A similar modification can be used to analyze cycling zone adsorption (Wankat, ...
