Design, Simulation and Optimization of Adsorptive and Chromatographic Separations: A Hands-On Approach
This book allows the reader to effectively design, simulate and optimize adsorptive and chromatographic separations for industrial applications. To achieve this, a unified approach is presented, which develops the ideal and intermediate equations necessary, while simultaneously offering hands-on case studies employing the rigorous simulation packages Aspen Adsorption and Aspen Chromatography. <br> The first part of the book deals with design strategies, detailed design considerations and the assumptions, which the models are allowed to make and covers shortcut design methods as well as mathematical tools to determine optimal operating conditions. These insights are used in Chapter 4 & 5 to estimate and optimize performance parameters, such as purity, recovery, etc. as well as the regression of these parameters.
