CUBIDES ROMAN, Diana Catalina; CARDONA ALZATE, Carlos Ariel  and  PISARENKO, Yu A. Study of Energetic Advantage in a Reactive Distillation Process Using Internal and External Streams Method. [online]. 2012, n.37, pp.6-12. ISSN 0121-4993.

This work develops a method to compare the energy expenses between sequential (reactionseparation) and simultaneous (reactive distillation) configurations, analyzing the internal and external process fows. As example was used the reaction of the type: A + B ⇄ C + D; with saturation temperatures : TC σ < TA σ < TB σ < TD σ. The results are discussed based on the residual curves for the industrial case of trans-esterification of methyl acetate with propyl formiate to obtain propyl acetate and methyl formiate.

Keywords : Chemical reactions; distillation; energy; methodology.
