McCabe-Thiel Plot Demonstration

This project is a demonstration for a McCabe-Thiel plot in distillation. The user inpust values on a panel to control the positions lines as below.

  • Set the shape of the equilibrium line using the relative volatility and the single-parameter Margules activity factor.
  • Set the input feed position and q-line value.
  • Set the distillate output composition. Set the relative reflux ratio as a factor over the minimum. Pin the relative reflux ratio at unity or to intercept the bottom at the feed.
  • Set the bottoms output composition. Set the boil-up ratio as a factor over the minimum. Pin the boil-up ratio at unity or to intercept the bottom at the feed.
  • Add grid lines to the plot or output the results to a layout to print or export.
