Phase Equilibria Research Archive


Research Summary:
Separating azeotropic and isomeric mixtures on an industrial scale is costly. Sound phase equilibria data are required for the accurate development of economic process designs. The measurement and analysis of the phase equilibria with the experimental designs soundly rooted in industrial end-use criteria is one aspect work at KTL.

The separation of the volatile organic chemicals (VOC's) from wastewater and from water bearing latex streams is becoming environmentally important. This separation is particularly difficult due to the presence of organic and inorganic solids in the wastewater. Development in two areas is required. First, fundamental measurements in the infinite dilute region are required. Second, a thermodynamic model capable of describing the adsorbed, liquid and vapor phases suitable for process design applications is required.
