48.7 kmols of 95 mol% C8 and 5 mol% C7. Exercise 13.32 (continued)
Analysis (continued):
(b) A number of changes can accomplish the goal of reducing the amount of the first slop
cut, which, from Example 13.11 for a reflux ratio of 8 for all 4 steps, is a total of 16.67 kmols out
of the 150 kmol charge. For three steps, each with a reflux ratio of 12, the Chemcad input data
and results are as follows, where the amount of the first slop cut is reduced from an amount of 6
kmols in part (a) to 5 kmols.

Subject: Differences of membrane separations from some other separation operations.
Find: How membrane separations differ from:
(a) Absorption and stripping
(b) Distillation
(c) Liquidliquid extraction
(d) Extractive distillation
Analysis: In general, membrane separations differ from absorption, stripping, distillation,
liquidliquid extraction, and extractive distillation in the following respects:
1. The separating agent for membrane separations is a semipermeable membrane.
2....
