Principles of Distillation
Basic principles of distillation process: high and low boilers; liquid-vapor composition tables; composition of boiling solutions, single-stage batch, and continuous distillation; mass balance around a column; use of temperature-composition diagrams; effect of pressure on boiling and condensing temperatures; and temperature and pressure indicators and recorders for the distillation process.
Prerequisites: Ability to use percent in arithmetic calculations, and familiarity with temperature and pressure units of measurement.
