|Abstract||The dividing-wall column, a compact structure of the fully thermally-coupled distillation or the Petlyuk column, has been known for around half a decade. Typically, it can claim up to 30% savings in terms of both capital and energy costs when compared to the other conventional column arrangements. The dividing wall column is thermodynamically equivalent to the Petlyuk column on the condition that no heat transfer is allowed across the dividing wall. However, better energy efficiency of the column may be obtained if heat transfer occurs within a certain part of the wall. The effects of heat transfer across the dividing wall can be analyzed by using the Column Grand Composite Curve (CGCC) [Lestak, et al., 1994]. The heat transfer potential across the wall can be observed by looking at the CGCC of both column sections alongside the dividing wall. However, the possibility of whether heat should be added or rejected at any stage is not clearly known ahead of the CGCC. Consequently, in this work, the exergy analysis is applied to the dividing wall column in order to determine whether heat should be added or rejected at any particular stage. The heat load targets at any stage, plotted as a T-H profile similar to the CGCC, can then be determined using the Method of Pinto (1998). This method was reported to successfully apply to the column with multiple feeds and products. After having identified the locations and quantities of the feasible heat transfer across the dividing wall, the benefits are discussed via a case study.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
