Lewis observed that for a distillation column:

enriching section

L1 = L2 ….. = Lj = L is constant

V1 = V2 ….. = Vj = V is constant

stripping section

L1 = L2 ….. = Lk = L is constant

V1 = V2 ….. = Vk = V is constant

but

Lewis Method

Important assumptions in distillation column calculation:

(1) column is adiabatic

(2) specific heat << latent heat

(3) latent heat (l) is constant independent of concentration

this means one mole of condensed vapor will

evaporate 1 mole of liquid

(4) saturated liquid and vapor lines in H-x-y diagram are

parallel

Feed tray

Feed Equation:

y = -{(L - L)/(V - V)}x + Fzf/(V-V)

y = -(Lf/Vf)x + (F/Vf)zf

y = {q/(q-1)}x + zf/(1-q)

q = (L-L)/F = (H-hf)/(H-h)

Example 19: Find the value of q and draw the feed line for a feed

containing 0.4 pentane and 0.6 toluene:

(a) the feed is a saturated liquid,

(b) the feed contains 0.5 fraction of vapor,

(c) the feed was superheated so that each mole of feed vaporizes 10 moles of liquid,

(d) the feed was subcooled so that each mole of feed condenses 2 moles of vapor.

Example 23: Crude oil could be extracted from sand found in Canadian province of Saskatchewan. Steam is used in the extraction process and the oil-water mixture is send through a series of distillation column. The final column known as the dehydrating column is employed for removing the final traces of water from the crude to meet the industrial maximum tolerance level of 0.01 mole fraction water. Instead of a condenser saturated liquid water was used directly as coolant. This arrangement has the added benefit of diluting the oil that remains in the water recovered at the distillate. The water from the distillate is then sent to settling tank to remove the final traces of oil before discharge.
