Circulating vs. Once-Through Thermosyphon Reboilers

{0 Comments}

We said before that it was wrong to return the effluent from a oncethrough reboiler with a vertical baffle to the cold side of the tower’s bottom. Doing so would actually make the once-through thermosyphon reboiler work more like a circulating reboiler. But if this is bad, then the once-through reboiler must be better than …

Circulating Thermosyphon Reboilers

{0 Comments}

The important differences between a once-through thermosyphon reboiler and a circulating thermosyphon reboiler is critical. Figure 7.4 shows a circulating reboiler. In this reboiler • The reboiler outlet temperature is always higher than the tower-bottom temperature. • Some of the liquid from the reboiler outlet will always recirculate back into the reboiler feed. • Some …

Once-Through Thermosyphon Reboilers

{0 Comments}

Figure 7.2 shows a once-through thermosyphon reboiler. The driving force to promote flow through this reboiler is the density difference between the reboiler feed line and the froth filled reboiler return line. For example: • The specific gravity of the liquid in the reboiler feed line is 0.600. • The height of liquid above the …
