Phase equilibria usually determines what type of separation process will be economical. Modeling of phase equilibria relies upon mathematical representation of chemical potential or fugacity; such abstract terminology can be intimidating. To avoid getting bogged down in theory, this webinar discusses the three practical steps that necessary to move from experimental phase equilibrium data to integration of the models in process simulators.
This presentation provides an overview of the industrial approaches for representing phase behavior with activity coefficients and perspective on models that include representation of hydrogen bonding.
