Feed temperature=443 K

Top temperature of the distillation column=453K

Bottom temperature of the distillation column=473K

Heat capacity with varying temperature

Cp= a+bT+CT2

7.5.1 Energy balance around the condenser [35]

Molar flow rate of BPA= 2.91 kmol/hr

Molar flow rate of phenol= 1.58 kmol/hr

Molar flow rate of acetone= 0.09 kmol/hr

Inlet temperature of the feed= 313K

Outlet temperature of the product at condenser= 298K

QAcetone= 0.09[(71.96(453-443))+ ((20.1x 10-2

)/2(4532

-4432

) –((12.78x 10-5

)/3(4533

-4433

)]

= 122.72kJ/hr

Qwater = 2.91[50.84(453-443)+((213.08x10-3

)/2(4532

-4432

)-((631.39x10-6

)/3(4533

)]

= 569.54kJ/hr

Qout1= QAcetone+ Qwater

= 692.26 kJ/hr

7.5.2 Energy balance around the reboiler [35]

Molar flow rate of BPA= 2.91 kmol/hr

Molar flow rate of phenol= 1.54 kmol/hr

Latent heat of phenol = 122 kJ/kg

QBPA= 2.91x 1.2x (473-443)

= 104.76 kJ/hr

Qphenol= 1.54 [207.48 (473-443)-((103.75x10-3

)/2(4732

-4432

)+((274 x 10-6

)/3(4733

-4433

)] + 1.54*94*122

= 10046.57 + 17660 kJ = 27707.57 kJ/hr

Qout2= QBPA+ Qphenol

= 27812.33 kJ/hr
