Distillate and bottom product rates can also be manipulated, so there are four variables that can be adjusted: La, q R , D, and B. They are not independent, however. If, for example, D is controlled, then B is dependent. Fundamental Manipulated Variables Two of the four manipulated variables listed above must be used to maintain liquid inventories in the reflux drum and in the column base. Therefore, we are left with just two manipulated variables that can be used to control compositions in the column.

In addition, it is fairly common practice to use excessive boilup and reflux to make sure of meeting or exceeding product specifications. This not only wastes energy; it also reduces column capacity. 00/1000 pounds, 8000 hours per year). To save this amount of steam would probably be only a modest accomplishment for most columns. If composition control of each product stream is desired (and this is usually * In some companies columns are designed by the probabilistic methods recommended by Fractionation Research, Incorporated.

11). The mixture is superheated vapor at temperatures above the dew point TDpand subcooled liquid at temperatures below the bubble point TBp. Note that we can talk about either bubble-point temperature or bubblepoint pressure, depending on which variable is fixed (isothermal or isobaric situations). The same is true for dew-point temperature and dew-point pressure. VLE Calculations Instead of using graphical techniques, we more commonly need to be able to calculate quantitatively various liquid and/or vapor compositions and temperatures or pressures given certain conditions in the column.
