Advanced energy saving in distillation process with self-heat recuperation technology

Publication year: 2011brbSource:/b Energy, In Press, Corrected Proof, Available online 13 April 2011brKazuo, Matsuda , Kenichi, Kawazuishi , Yasuki, Kansha , Chihiro, Fushimi , Masaki, Nagao , …brIn the distillation process, heat is supplied at a feed heater and a reboiler, and an overhead stream is cooled at a condenser. Almost all of the supplied heat at the reboiler in the conventional distillation process is discarded in the overhead condenser. Conventional energy savings of the distillation processes were fundamentally attained as a result of heat recovery duty in the feed heater being maximized by using the heat of the bottom stream, which enabled the utility (steam or hot oil) rate to the feed heater to be reduced. To achieve further energy saving in the distillation process, “self-heat…br Highlights: ► Advanced energy saving in distillation process. ► Self-heat recuperation technology (SHRT) applies two compressors in the overhead vapor line of the distillation process. ► SHRT is able to reduce the energy consumption significantly by using the recuperated heat of the overhead vapor.
