Model Validation for the Stripper

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Energy book series (BRIEFSENERGY)


In this chapter, the stripping section is modeled and experimental data from two different pilot-plant facilities are used for the validation. In Aspen Plus®, two different sets of degrees of freedom are chosen for the two plants, in order to study the effect of the proposed procedure on the evaluation of the output streams features in one case and on the evaluation of the reboiler duty in the other case. After the Peclet number evaluation, the number of segments analysis is performed. The obtained model is able to describe correctly the experimental data, validating the proposed procedure for the stripper. Moreover, it is highlighted how a correct use of the software leads to a better estimation of the reboiler duty.
