Development of the software for energy savings in chemical processes(I)

Technical Report:

Abstract

Energy conservation in the energy intensive chemical industries, especially in the thermal separation processes is the most effective way for saving industrial energy. The purpose of this project is to research the methods of energy savings in the thermal separation processes and to develop a software for selecting and applying these method. This report is the first term report of the project. The methods of energy savings in distillation processes are investigated and a systematic and effective algorithm for selecting and applying the methods of energy savings in distillation processes is developed. In the next year(second term), a computer program with this algorithm is developed for applying it to real plant. It is expected that about 20% of distillation energy will be saved by application of above methods. The results are as followes. (1). Energy savings in distillation processes can be performed with following techniques; (1) feed optimization (2) doing a good insulation equipment and pipings, (3) setting the product purity by process optimization (4) choice of appropriate control scheme and application of advanced control system, (5) optimum combination of columns by pinch technology, (6) revamping with high efficient distillation columns, (7) utilization of distillate heat of condensing using heat  More>>
