Equations have been proposed for calculating the rectification process of multicomponent mixtures for columns with actual plates (considering the plate efficiency) with sectioning of the liquid stream.
A description has been given of the block diagram of the program for computer calculation of multicomponent rectification using the equations obtained.
It has been shown that a good agreement between the calculated and experimental component-concentration distributions along apparatus height can be obtained by assuming identical values of the local efficiency (number of transfer units) for all mixture-components within the limits of individual portions or along the entire column.
