Batch or Differential Distillation Columns And Their Process Calculation

Introduction to batch differential distillation, basic process diagram, Rayleigh equation derivation, columns and process calculation with example.

In batch operation, the feed is introduced batch-wise to the column. That is, the column is charged with a 'batch' and then the distillation process is carried out. When the desired task is achieved, a next batch of feed is introduced. Consider a binary mixture of components A (more volatile) and B (less volatile). The system consists of a batch of liquid (fixed quantity) inside a kettle (or still) fitted with heating element and a condenser to condense the vapor produced as shown in figure.

The condensed vapor is known as the distillate. The distillate is collected in a condensate receiver. The liquid remaining in the still is known as the residual. The process is unsteady state. The concentration changes can be analyzed using the phase diagram, and detailed mathematical calculations carried out using the Rayleigh Equation. As the process is unsteady state, the derivation is based on a differential approach to changes in concentration with time.
Let L1 = initial moles of liquid originally in still,
L2 = final moles of liquid remained in still,
x1 = initial liquid composition in still (mole fraction of A),
x2 = final liquid composition in still (mole fraction A).
At any time t, the amount of liquid in the still is L, with mole fraction of A in the liquid being x. After a small differential time (t + dt), a small amount of vapor dL is produced, and the composition of A in the vapor is y (mole fraction). The vapor is assumed to be in equilibrium with the residue liquid. The amount of liquid in the still is thus reduced from L to (L - dL), while the liquid composition changed from x to (x - dx). Then the material balance on A can be written as:
Initial amount in still = Amount left in still + Amount vaporized
xL = (x - dx)(L - dL) + ydL
xL = xL - xdL - Ldx + dxdL + ydL (1.1)
Neglecting the term (dx)(dL), the Equation (1.1) may be written as:
Ldx = ydL - xdL
Re-arranging and Integrating from L1 to L2, and from x1 to x2, one can obtain the following Equation which is called Rayleigh Equation:

ln(L1/L2)=integration of (1/y-x)dx from x2 to x1

Rayleigh Equation

The integration can be obtained graphically from the equilibrium curve, by plotting 1/(y-x) versus x.

Batch Distillation Problem Example:

A mixture of 40 mole % isopropanol in water is to be batch-distilled at 1 atm until
70 mole % of the charge has been vaporized. Calculate the composition of the
liquid residue remaining in the still pot, and the average composition of the
collected distillate. VLE data for this system, in mole fraction of isopropanol, at 1
atm are (Seader and Henley, 1998):

Table For Numerical Problem

Calculate 1/(y-x)
As per Rayleigh Equation
ln(L1/L2)=integration of (1/y-x)dx from x2 to x1
x1= 0.4
Feed L1 = 100
Distillate (D) = 70
Liquid residue as L2 = L1-D = 30
Find x2 using Rayleigh Equaition, we get
