Binary Distillation Design and Control

Nagamalleswara Rao K


This paper discusses design and control strategies of binary distillation process using ASPEN PLUS V8.8 simulating tool. Steady state design procedure for binary distillation column design to separate acrolein and propylene is explained. Dynamic simulations were conducted by designing control structure. The developed control structure contains level controllers, pressure controllers and temperature controllers. The developed control structure has shown good performance in withstanding the various process disturbances.
