Graphical concepts to orient the minimum reflux ratio calculation oil ternary mixtures distillation
New methods for orienting the calculation of the minimum reflux ratio for distillation columns have been developed. These methods are based on the geometrical concepts of the Ponchon and Savarit method for binary systems and use the geometrical conditions required to achieve such a situation in ternary systems. These concepts have been applied to ideal and nonideal ternary mixtures.
