An inlet water solution of 400kg/h containing 10 wt% acetone is extracted with the pure solvent trichloroethane in a countercurrent packed tower at 25 °C. Water and trichloroethane are essentially immiscible. The exit concentration in the water (raffinate) stream is set at 1.0 wt % (a) Plot the equilibrium data given in the table in example 12.7-4 and fit the data using a second order polynomial (b) Using the feed condition, calculate L' (the mass flow rate of the inert water). Calculate L1. (c) For V-300kg/h (the mass flow rate of the inert trichloroethane), calculate y2 (solute concentration in the extract phase at the exit). (Hint: make a mass balance on the solute over the entire tower.) (d) Calculate V2. (f) Calculate A1 = mtv. A,- and A =-AA2. (g) If the height of a transfer unit Ho 1m, using the equation (12.7-22), calculate the number of transfer units Nou and the tower height. (Note that Hou and Nou are different from HoG and NoG we derived during the class. The equation we derived was based on the extract phase. A similar equation can be derived based on the raffinate phase, which is the next problem. Either way you can estimate the tower height HoLNoL-Hog Noc) (h) Using the method introduced in the class, derive (12.7-22) nd (12.7-4) can be used to calculat the coordinates of , and VSs, ar, Equations (12.7-3) streams V; and Lx Usually, the nows and composias Streams desired exit composition raN is set.

In Fig. 12.7.3. V n inlet water solution of 800 kg/h containing 12.0 wt% acetone is extracted with the solvent trichloroethane containing 0.5 wt% acetone in a countercurrent tower at 25°C The solvents water and trichloroethane are essentially im- miscible in each other up to a concentration of acetone in water of 27 wt %. The exit concentration in the water (raffinate) stream is set at 10 wt % acetone. The equilibrium data are as follows (T3), where x is the weight fraction of acetone in plotted. Also. since Ly is on the phase boundary, it can be plotend L, ate For the mixture point M, substituting into Eqs.
