The column diameter for Montz would be 5.5 ft without swaging. The column height for NOR PAC, allowing 4 ft for disengagement, 2 ft for feed entry, and 10 ft for sump at the bottom would be 42.5 ft or say 43 ft. Similarly, the column height for Montz would be 21 ft. Exercise 7.52 (continued) Analysis: Summary (continued) The above may be compared with the existing plate column of Exercise 7.41: Column diameter, ft Column height, ft Pressure drop, psi Plate column 6.0 36 0.8 NOR PAC 4.5 43 0.38 Montz 5.5 21 0.093 The packed columns are smaller in diameter, the NOR PAC column significantly smaller. The Montz structure packing column is shorter in height and has much less pressure drop. The NOR PAC rings random packing column is taller and has significantly more pressure drop than the column with Montz packing. The pressure drop is not critical. Because of the much higher cost for Montz packing and the much smaller diameter for the NOR PAC column, it is probable that economics would favor the NOR PAC column. Exercise 7.53 Subject: Distillation of a mixture of benzene and toluene in a packed column. Given: Conditions in Example 7.1, but using 50-mm Hiflow rings at 70% of flooding. Assumptions: Constant molar overflow. Partial reboiler is an equilibrium stage. Find: (a) Liquid holdup. (b) Column diameter. (c) HOG. (d) Packed height. (e) Pressure drop.
