LABVIEW CALCULATIONS :
(Note : In the snapshots all the boxes with a green background designates inputs/measurements ,with a blue background designates virtual data )
STEP 1 : This is the first step where the input is relative volatility.Depending on this the equilibrium curve will be drawn.
STEP 2 : In this step the inputs are the distillate composition and the reflux ratio depending on which the upper operating line is made.
STEP 3 : In this step the inputs are the feed composition and the Q value depending on which the Q- line is made.
STEP 4 : In this step the input is the bottom composition depending on which the lower operating line is made.
STEP 5 :This step is the concluding step for the McCabe thiele process.Here we get the data for the equilibrium compositions of both liquid and vapor on each tray ,all the flow rates and the no. of stages in each section.It also involves the self assessment part.
STEP 6 : This step involves the diameter , height and the various cost calculations.
STEP 7 : This is the final step which involves the case study of different parameters.
