For two stages, the wt% DPH will be less. In this manner, it is found that the raffinate will contain 2.5 wt% DPH for 2 stages. The construction is shown below and the compositions and flow rates of the corresponding raffinate and extract are as follows for the solvent flow rate of 2,000 kg/h: Flow rate, kg/h DPH, wt % Docosane, wt% Furfural, wt% Raffinate 855 2.5 93.3 4.2 Extract 2,145 8.0 0.5 91.5 Analysis: (b, c) continued: Exercise 8.23 (continued) The following diagram shows the construction to determine minimum and maximum solvent rates to produce two liquid phases. R R F S min S max S Analysis: (d) continued: Exercise 8.23 (continued) The diagram bellows shows construction for an assumed raffinate containing 2.5 wt% DPH and two stages. The mixing point, M, corresponds to 200 kg/h of DPH and 2,000 kg/h of furfural in a total of 3,000 kg/h sent to the extraction unit. This gives 6.7 wt% DPH and 66.7 wt% furfural. R R Analysis: (d) continued Exercise 8.23 (continued) Exercise 8.24 Subject: Extraction of acetone (A) from water (C) by 1,1,2-trichloroethane (S) at 25oC Given: Liquid mixture of 27 wt% A and 73 wt% C. Liquid-liquid equilibrium data. Raffinate essentially of acetone Find: (a) Minimum solvent-to-feed ratio. (b) Composition of the extract at the minimum solvent-to-feed ratio. (c) Composition of the extract stream leaving Stage 2 from the feed end. Analysis: Using the given equilibrium data in weight fractions, the right-triangle diagram is shown below, where a solid line is used for the equilibrium curve and dashed lines are used for the tie lines, only three of which are given. Additional tie-line locations can be made using either of the two techniques illustrated in Fig. 8.16. (a) The minimum solvent flow rate corresponds to an infinite number of equilibrium stages. To determine this minimum: (1) Points are plotted on the triangular diagram for the given compositions of the solvent, S (pure S), feed, F (27 wt% A, 73 wt% C), and raffinate, RN (0 wt% A on the equilibrium curve), followed by drawing an operating line through the points S and RN and extending it only to the right because the tie lines slope down from left to right; (2) Because the pinch region, where equilibrium stages crowd together, may occur anywhere, additional potential operating lines may be drawn through the tie lines extended to the right until they cross the operating line at the solvent end, drawn in (1) The intersections are not shown in the diagram because they are far off the page. (3) The intersection point farthest from the triangular diagram is the one used to determine the minimum solvent rate. For this exercise, that point is quite sensitive. Assume the controlling line is the one through F, corresponding to a pinch point at the feed end of the cascade; (4) An operating line is drawn from Pmin through F to the dete...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
