Unformatted text preview: ‐ 4 Propane 4.62 *MAPD refers to the C 3 acetylenes (C 3 H 4 ), methylacetylene and propadiene. It is desired to obtain a product with a propylene concentration of 99.6 mole percent. Determine the distillate and bottoms concentrations and flow rates, note the heavy and light keys, determine the bubble point temperatures of the distillate & bottoms, estimate the condenser & bottoms pressures, and determine the appropriate condenser & type of cooling liquid. Assume a column pressure drop of 10 psi....
