16.9 Summary—Objectives

At the end of this chapter you should be able to satisfy the following objectives:

1. Derive and use the mass transfer analysis (HTU-NTU) approach for distillation columns

2. Use HTU-NTU analysis for dilute and concentrated absorbers and strippers

3. Use the mass transfer correlations to determine the HTU

4. Derive and use HTU-NTU analysis for co-current flow

5. Use mass transfer analysis to determine tray efficiency of binary systems

6. Use mass transfer analysis for extraction mixer-settler design

7. Use rate-based simulators to design distillation columns
