Distillation Analysis Public

The project goal was to optimize the process settings for the multi-stage batch distillation experiment used for CHE2014 to run two experiments per day in accordance with standard three-hour lab periods. The constant molal overflow assumption was questioned and invalidated as means to relate the distillate and bottoms concentrations for the experiment. An alternate theory of incorporating the heat loss effects on the internal reflux ratio at each stage to generate a more accurate operating line was proposed.
