    • Distillation: Energy Savings and Other Benefits From the Use of High Efficiency Packings 

      Bravo, J. L.; Fair, J. R.; Humphrey, J. L. (Energy Systems Laboratory (, 1985-05)
      A great deal of attention has been focused lately on the use of high-efficiency packings for distillation applications. This paper discusses benefits that can be derived from the use of these devices. In particular, ...
    • Distillation: Present Status and Future Directions 

      Fair, J. R.; Humphrey, J. L. (Energy Systems Laboratory ( A&M University (, 1984)
      Distillation will undoubtedly continue to be the most-used method for separating liquid mixtures, at any scale of operation. For this reason, and also because of its recognized energy intensiveness, distillation commands ...
    • Distillation: The Efficient Workhorse 

      Steinmeyer, D. (Energy Systems Laboratory (, 1985-05)
    • Economics of Energy Conservation in the Chemical and Petrochemical Industries 

      Nachod, J. E. Jr. (Energy Systems Laboratory (, 1987-09)
      Capital allocated to energy savings projects competes with that for new or revised plants. Thus, it must show the same or better rate of return. Usually the risk factor in energy savings projects is less than allocations ...
    • Electrified Separation Processes in Industry 

      Appleby, A. J. (Energy Systems Laboratory ( A&M University (, 1983)
      For any separation procedure in the chemical industry, a certain amount of reversible work in the form of free energy is required, as dictated by the second law of thermodynamics. Classical techniques for effecting ...
    • Energy Conservation and Cogeneration in Bottom-of-the-Barrel Processes 

      Fleming, J. B.; Chang, C. P.; Pierce, V. E. (Energy Systems Laboratory ( A&M University (, 1982)
      Due to the increased use of coal and the reduced demand for Bunker C and other heavy liquid fuels, more refiners are adding or increasing the capacity of their facilities for converting the bottom-of-the-barrel streams ...
    • Experimental and analytical studies of hydrocarbon yields under dry-, steam-, and steam-with-propane distillation 

      Jaiswal, Namit (Texas A&M University, 2007-09-17)
      Simulation study has shown oil production is accelerated when propane is used as an additive during steam injection. To better understand this phenomenon, distillation experiments were performed using San Ardo crude oil ...
    • Heat Recovery in Distillation by Mechanical Vapor Recompression 

      Becker, F. E.; Zakak, A. I. (Energy Systems Laboratory (, 1986-06)
      A significant reduction in distillation tower energy requirements can be achieved by mechanical vapor recompression. Three design approaches for heating a distillation tower reboiler by mechanical vapor recompression ...
