Take the packed height as 14 ft. The column height, allowing 4 ft for disengagement, 2 ft for feed entry, and 10 ft for sump at the bottom would be 30 ft. The total pressure drop is: (2.31/0.3048)(0.0069) + (1.67/0.3048)(0.0098) = 0.11 psi. For the plate column of Example 7.1, with 12.2 equilibrium stages, take tray efficiency = 80%. Therefore, need 16 trays, with a column height of 44 ft. Take a pressure drop of 0.08 psi/tray, giving a total pressure drop of 18(0.08) = 1.44 psi. The column diameter is estimated to be 4.5 ft. The following summarizes the comparison. with the plate column of Exercise 7.1: Plate column Column diameter, ft Column height, ft Pressure drop, psi 4.5 44 1.44 The packed column is very competitive with the plate column.

Given: Enthalpy-concentration diagram in Fig. 7.37. Find: (a) Composition of vapor at bubble-point for 30 mol% nC6. (b) Energy to vaporize 60 mol% of a mixture initially at 100oF with 20 mol% nC6 . (c) Vapor and liquid compositions resulting from part (b). Analysis: (a) In Fig. 7.37, below, the bubble point for 30 mol% nC6 in nC8 is shown as point B, which corresponds to a temperature of 211oF. An equilibrium tie line is drawn from point B to point M at the intersection with the sat...
