Introduction to Aspen Plus

VCM Workshop (Continued)

Part A:

•With the help of the process flow diagram on the previous page, set
up a flowsheet to simulate the VCM process. What are the values of
the following quantities?

1. Furnace heat duty ________

2. Quench cooling duty ________

3. Quench outlet temperature ________

4. Condenser and Reboiler duties for COL2

________________

5. Concentration of VCM in the product stream ________

Part B:

•The conversion of EDC to VCM in the furnace varies between 50%
and 55%. Use the sensitivity analysis capability to generate plots of
the furnace heat duty and quench cooling duty as a function of EDC
conversion.
