13 Multicomponent Rigorous Methods Rigorous Methods: solution of stage by stage material balances, energy balances, and

thermodynamic equilibrium equations. 14 AspenPlus: RADFRAC Rigorous two- or three-phase fractionation for single columns. Models absorbers, strippers, reactive distillation, and so forth.

RadFrac is a rigorous model for simulating all types of multistage vapor liquid fractionation operations. In addition to ordinary distillation, it can simulate: o absorption, reboiled absorption, stripping, reboiled stripping, extractive and azeotropic distillation 15 Rigorous Model

16 AspenPlus: RADFRAC Rigorous two- or three-phase fractionation for single columns. Models absorbers, strippers, reactive distillation, and so forth. RadFrac is a rigorous model for simulating all types of multistage vapor liquid fractionation operations. In addition to ordinary distillation, it can simulate: o absorption, reboiled absorption, stripping, reboiled stripping, extractive and

azeotropic distillation RadFrac is suitable for: o three phase systems, narrow boiling and wide boiling systems, systems exhibiting strong liquid phase nonideality RadFrac can detect and handle a free water phase or other second liquid phase anywhere in the column. You can decant free water from the condenser. RadFrac can handle solids on every stage. RadFrac can model columns where chemical reactions are occurring. Reactions can have fixed conversions, or they can be:

o equilibrium, rate controlled, electrolytic RadFrac can model columns where two liquid phases exist and different chemical reactions occur in the two liquid phases. RadFrac can also model salt precipitation. RadFrac can operate in rating mode or design mode. With Aspen Rate-Based Distillation feature, RadFrac can perform rate-based distillation calculations (packed tower configurations). 17 Rating Mode
