Process data of a commercial-scale batch distillation column for separation of a ternary mixture of 2-propanol/ water/n-hexane was analyzed, and a simulation model capable of predicting dynamic conditions was developed. The developed model was applied to batch distillation in a commercial plant, and the operation performances were studied. By adjusting the conventional operating conditions, it was found possible to improve the function and performance of the process and achieve energy-saving.
