## Solution Manual Chapter 4

New Problems and new solutions are listed as new immediately after the solution number. These new
problems are: 4A6, 4A13, 4C10, 4C16, 4D6, 4D9, 4D13, 4D15, 4D18, 4E4, 4E5, 4H1 to 4H3.
4A1.

## Point A: streams leaving stage 2 (L2, V2)

Point B: vapor stream leaving stage 5 (V5)
liquid stream leaving stage 4 (L4)
Temp. of stage 2: know K y 2 / x 2 , can get T from temperature-composition graph or
DePriester chart of K = f(T,p).
Temp. in reboiler: same as above (reboiler is an equilibrium stage.)

4A2.

## a. Feed tray = .6, z = 0.51 (draw y = x line), yF =0.52, xF = 0.29.

C. Answer is a
D. Answer is a
E. Answer is b
F. Answer is a
G. Answer is b
If feed stage is non-optimum, the feed conditions can be changed to have an optimum
feed location.

4B2.

a. Use columns in parallel. Lower F to each column allows for higher L/D and may be sufficient
for product specifications.
b. Add a reboiler instead of steam injection. Slightly less stages required and adds 1 stage.
c. Make the condenser a partial instead of a total condenser. Adds a stage.
d. Stop removing side stream. Fewer stages are now required for the same separation.
e. Remove the intermediate reboiler or condenser and use it at bottom (or top) of column. Fewer
stages, but all energy at highest T (reboilers) or lowest T (condenser) for same separation.
Many other ideas will be useful in certain cases.
