Distillation has historically been the main method forseparating mixtures in the chemical process industry. However,despite the flexibility and widespread use of distillationprocesses, they still remain extremely energy inefficient.Increased optimization and novel distillation concepts can deliversubstantial benefits, not just in terms of significantly lowerenergy use, but also in reducing capital investment and improvingeco-efficiency. While likely to remain the separation technology ofchoice for the next few decades, there is no doubt thatdistillation technologies need to make radical changes in order tomeet the demands of the energy-conscious society. Advanced Distillation Technologies: Design, Control andApplications gives a deep and broad insight into integratedseparations using non-conventional arrangements, including bothcurrent and upcoming process intensification technologies. It includes: Key concepts in distillation technology Principles of design, control, sizing and economics ofdistillation Dividing-wall column (DWC) – design, configurations,optimal operation and energy efficient and advanced control DWC applications in ternary separations, azeotropic, extractiveand reactive distillation Heat integrated distillation column (HIDiC) – design,equipment and configurations Heat-pump assisted applications (MVR, TVR, AHP, CHRP, TAHP andothers) Cyclic distillation technology – concepts, modelingapproach, design and control issues Reactive distillation – fundamentals, equipment,applications, feasibility scheme Results of rigorous simulations in Mathworks Matlab &Simulink, Aspen Plus, Dynamics and Custom Modeler Containing abundant examples and industrial case studies, thisis a unique resource that tackles the most advanced distillationtechnologies – all the way from the conceptual design topractical implementation.

Process Intensification Technologies for Biodiesel Production

Author: Anton Alexandru Kiss
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9783319035543
Release Date: 2014-03-15
Genre: Science

This book is among the first to address the novel process intensification technologies for biodiesel production, in particular the integrated reactive separations. It provides a comprehensive overview illustrated with many industrially relevant examples of novel reactive separation processes used in the production of biodiesel (e.g. fatty acid alkyl esters): reactive distillation, reactive absorption, reactive extraction, membrane reactors, and centrifugal contact separators. Readers will also learn about the working principles, design and control of integrated processes, while also getting a relevant and modern overview of the process intensification opportunities for biodiesel synthesis. Biodiesel is a biodegradable and renewable fuel that currently enjoys much attention. In spite of the recent advances, the existing biodiesel processes still suffer from problems associated with the use of homogeneous catalysts (e.g. salt waste streams) and the key limitations imposed by the chemical reaction equilibrium, thus leading to severe economic and environmental penalties. The integration of reaction and separation into one operating unit overcomes equilibrium limitations and provides key benefits such as low capital investment and operating costs. Many of these processes can be further enhanced by heat-integration and powered by heterogeneous catalysts, to eliminate all conventional catalyst related operations, using the raw materials efficiently and the reaction volume, while offering high conversion and selectivity, and significant energy savings. The targeted audience of this book includes both academia (students and researchers) and industry (project leaders, technology managers, researchers, biodiesel producers, and equipment suppliers).

Advanced Process Engineering Control

Author: Paul Serban Agachi
Publisher: Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co KG
ISBN: 9783110306637
Release Date: 2017-01-01
Genre: Technology & Engineering

As a mature topic in chemical engineering, the book provides methods, problems and tools used in process control engineering. It discusses: process knowledge, sensor system technology, actuators, communication technology, and logistics, design and construction of control systems and their operation. The knowledge goes beyond the traditional process engineering field by applying the same principles, to biomedical processes, energy production and management of environmental issues. The book explains all the determinations in the "chemical systems" or "process systems", starting from the beginning of the processes, going through the intricate interdependency of the process stages, analyzing the hardware components of a control system and ending with the design of an appropriate control system for a process parameter or a whole process. The book is first addressed to the students and graduates of the departments of Chemical or Process Engineering. Second, to the chemical or process engineers in all industries or research and development centers, because they will notice the resemblance in approach from the system and control point of view, between different fields which might seem far from each other, but share the same control philosophy.

Advances in Distillation Retrofit

Author: Nguyen Van Duc Long
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9789811059018
Release Date: 2017-09-18
Genre: Science

This book describes the current state of the art in the retrofit of existing distillation processes using advanced distillation techniques. Highlighting concept and practical application rather than theory, it emphasizes the use of advanced process integration and intensification techniques, such as multi-effect distillation, heat pump assisted distillation, thermally coupled distillation, dividing wall column, reactive distillation, and innovative hybrid systems. As a thermal separation method, distillation is one of the most important and widely used technologies in the chemical process industry. While it has many advantages, one major drawback is its large energy requirement, which can significantly influence overall plant profitability. The increasing cost of energy has forced industry to reduce its energy requirement, but simultaneously there has been a need to increase capacity and output due to heightened demand. To accomplish this, the retrofit of distillation processes to increase efficiency and output has become a crucial issue. This book describes the use of advanced process integration and process intensification techniques to carry out effective distillation retrofit. Written by leading researchers in distillation process, process integration, process intensification, and process retrofit, the book presents a comprehensive review of contemporary advanced distillation techniques which can be employed in grass-root systems and retrofit. It is a valuable source of information for undergraduate and postgraduate students of chemical engineering, practicing process designers and chemical engineers.

Applied Control Systems Design

Author: Magdi S. Mahmoud
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781447128793
Release Date: 2012-04-13
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Applied Control System Design examines several methods for building up systems models based on real experimental data from typical industrial processes and incorporating system identification techniques. The text takes a comparative approach to the models derived in this way judging their suitability for use in different systems and under different operational circumstances. A broad spectrum of control methods including various forms of filtering, feedback and feedforward control is applied to the models and the guidelines derived from the closed-loop responses are then composed into a concrete self-tested recipe to serve as a check-list for industrial engineers or control designers. System identification and control design are given equal weight in model derivation and testing to reflect their equality of importance in the proper design and optimization of high-performance control systems. Readers’ assimilation of the material discussed is assisted by the provision of problems and examples. Most of these exercises use MATLAB® to make computation and visualization more straightforward. Applied Control System Design will be of interest to academic researchers for its comparison of different systems models and their response to different control methods and will assist graduate students in learning the practical necessities of advanced control system design. The consistent reference to real systems coupled with self-learning tools will assist control practitioners who wish to keep up to date with the latest control design ideas.
