    Solvent Criteria One of the most important steps in developing a successful (economical) extractive distillation sequence is selecting a good solvent. Approaches to the selection of an extractive distillation solvent are discussed by Berg, Ewell et al. ,and Tassions. In general, selection criteria include the following : 1. Should enhance significantly the natural relative volatility of the key component. 2. Should not require an excessive ratio of solvent to nonsolvent (because of cost of handling in the column and auxiliary equipment. 3. Should remain soluble in the feed components and should not lead to the formation of two phase. 4. Should be easily separable from the bottom product. 5. Should be inexpensive and readily available. 6. Should be stable at the temperature of the distillation and solvent separation. 7. Should be nonreactive with the components in the feed mixture. 8. Should have a low latent heat. 9. Should be noncorrosive and nontoxic Naturally no single solvent or solvent mixture satisfy all the criteria, and compromises must be reached. Solvent Screening Perry's handbook serve as a good reference for the solvent selection procedure, which can be thought of as a two step process, i.e.: Broad screening by functional group or chemical family Homologous series : Select candidate solvent from the high boiling homologous series of both light and heavy key components. Robins Chart: Select candidate solvents from groups in the Robbins Chart that tend to give positive (or no) deviations from Raoult's law for the key component desire in the distillate and negative (or no) deviations for the other key. Hydrogen-bonding characteristic: are likely to cause the formation of hydrogen bonds with the key component to be removed in the bottoms, or disruption of hydrogen bonds with the key to be removed in the distillate. Formation and disruption of hydrogen bonds are often associated with strong negative and positive deviations, respectively from Raoult's Law. Polarity characteristic: Select candidate solvents from chemical groups that tend to show higher polarity than one key component or lower polarity than the other key. Identification of individual candidate solvents Boiling point characteristic: Select only candidate solvents that boil at least 30-40C above the key components to ensure that the solvent is relatively nonvolatile and remains largely in the liquid phase. With this boiling point difference, the solvent should also not form azeotropes with the other components. Selectivity at the infinite dilution: Rank the candidate solvents according to their selectivity at infinite dilution. Experimental measurement of relative volatility: Rank the candidate solvents by the increase in relative volatility caused by the addition of the solvent. Residue curve maps are of limited usefulness at the preliminary screening stage because there is usually insufficient information available to sketch the them, but they are valuable and should be sketched or calculated as part of the second stage of the solvent selection.

    Calculating heat exchanger effectiveness allows engineers to predict how a given heat exchanger will perform a new job. Essentially, it helps engineers predict the stream outlet temperatures without a trial-and-error solution that would otherwise be necessary. Heat exchanger effectiveness is defined as the ratio of the actual amount of heat transferred to the maximum possible amount of heat that could be transferred with an infinite area. Two common methods are used to calculate the effectiveness, equations and graphical. The equations are shown below. Eqn(1) Eqn(2) where: U = Overall heat transfer coefficient A = Heat transfer area Cmin = Lower of the two fluid's heat capacities Cmax = Higher of the two fluid's heat capacities Often times, another variable is defined called the NTU (number of transfer units): NTU = UA/Cmin When NTU is placed into the effectiveness equations and they are plotted, you can construct the plots shown below which are more often used than the equations: Fig1: Heat Exchanger Effectiveness for Countercurrent Flow Fig2: Heat Exchanger Effectiveness For Cocurrent Flow Then, by calculating the Cmin/Cmax and the NTU, the effectiveness can be read from these charts. Once the effectiveness has been found, the heat load is calculated by: Q = Effectiveness x Cmin x (Hot Temperature in - Cold Temperature in) For calculating the outlet temperatures we use the equations stated below Eqn(3) Eqn(4)
