Cyclohexene distillation

A fraction containing primarily cyclohexene primarily cyclohexene and water is separated from raw cyclohexanone in Cyclohexene column. Raw Cyclohexanone is fed from storage tank to Cyclohexene Column via Cyclohexene heater.

In Cyclohexene Heater, the feed is heated up to about 1200C with the heat carried by the bottom product from Alcohols column. The Cyclohexene column is operated at atmospheric pressure and temperatures of 850C at top and 1650C at bottom. The vapours from Cyclohexene column, containing mainly Cyclohexene and water, are condensed in Cyclohexene condenser and Cyclohexene Cooler which are connected in series.

1.7 bar nitrogen is continuously directed to the vent of Cyclohexene Cooler. After separation the water layer is drained off to waste water vessel and the organic layer is pumped by reflux pump to the top of Cyclohexene column and rest as distillate to benzene hydrogenation section. Cyclohexene evaporator is fed with 20 bar steam. The bottom product from cyclohexene column is pumped by cyclohexanone pump as feed to Alcohols column. The Project Report On Cyclohexanone

This column is fed with the anhydrous cyclohexanone/cyclohexanol mixture coming from the cyclohexane oxidation section. The bottom product of the Cyclohexene column with sodium hydroxide is also entered in this column. Feed is heated in feed heater, in this heater the anhydrous mixture is heated up to a temperature of 1400C with the heat carried by the bottom product arriving from Alcohols column .Column is operated under atmospheric pressure at temperatures of 1320C at the top and 1600C at the

    MX 2301 is the Mixer in this stage of the process that mixes isobutylene that comes from (V 3101, V 3102) with Methanol from Methanol drum (V 2303). Next, Isobutylene and Methanol reacted in reactor (R 2301) to produce 95% of MTBE at a pressure that equals 3400 kpagauge and temperature of 120o C. In addition, butane column (V 2304) is available and it has two objectives, which are reaching 98% to 99% of MTBE production and distillation of MTBE from other components such as Methanol and unreacted isobutylene. MTBE transferred to the storage tanks and the other compounds go to Water wash column (V 2306). V 2306 is the next column that extracts Methanol from the mixture of Methanol and unreacted Isobutylene. Extraction process occurred by…

    Water content : The American Society for Testing and Materials(ASTM) standard method D95 was used from ensuring the water content of the oily sludge. The oily sludge was heated with benzene(solvent) which co-distilled with the water in the sample in a fume cupboard .Condensed solvent and water were continuously separate and the water settled as the bottom layer. The condensed liquid containing water and hydrocarbon was transferred to a graduated cylinder. A water layer with higher density was at the bottom of the cylinder. The volume of the water was then used in calculating the water content in the sample (using the density of water of 1g/cm3 ).…

    At each stage the unconsumed reactants are absorbed into a water solution which is recycled to the secondary reactor. The excess ammonia is purified and used as feedstock to the primary reactor. 3- Concentration 75% of the urea solution is heated under vacuum, which evaporates off some of the water, increasing the urea concentration from 68% w/w to 80% w/w. At this stage some urea crystals also form. The solution is then heated from 80 to 110oC to re-dissolve these crystals prior to evaporation.…

    3) Carbon dioxide stripper The used UCARSOL is sent to the carbon dioxide stripper. Here the UCARSOL is heated to remove a mixture of CO2 and water, then cooled and reused. The water is then removed from the CO2 by condensation and pure CO2 is sent directly to the urea plant for compression and use in urea synthesis. 4) Ammonia recovery Gases purged from the ammonia synthesis loop and gases collected during ammonia decompression are mixed and sent to the ammonia recovery system. Here the gas mixture is introduced at the bottom of a column and passed up through a counter-current of cold water.…

    Ethyl vinyl ether was used to protect –OH on glycidol based on a literature reported protocal.59 In a typical procedure, 0.675 mol glycidol and 200 mL ethyl vinyl ether were loaded in a round-bottom flask, to which 1.25 g TsOH was then added. The reaction was allowed to proceed at room temperature (RT) for 3h. The resulting mixture was then purified by washing with 100 ml saturated aqueous solution of NaHCO3 for 3 times. The organic layer obtained was dried by MgSO4. After filtration of MgSO4, the excess ethyl vinyl ether was removed by rotary evaporation.…

    2. The gas phase catalytic oxidation of benzene reactor model and evaluation of the parametric sensitivity To illustrate the parametric sensitivity analysis, the case of gaseous phase catalytic oxidation of benzene to maleic anhydride was considered (Lupușor et al., 1981). The multi-tubular reactor (heat exchanger type) with the fixed bed catalyst inside a small diameter tubes (under 3 -4 cm) is continously cooled by molten salt mixture (nitrates and nitrites mixture; Maria , 2007). The raw materials are air (oxygen) and benzene. The compressed and filtered air is heated into a preaheter (using the heat coming from the reactor outlet) is mixd with benzene vapours at a concentration below the lower explosion limit (LEL, 1.5%).…

    The experiment made use of two reactions in synthesizing 1-phenylazo-2-naphtol, also known as Sudan-1. The first is the diazotization reaction in which a diazonium salt is formed from the conversion of primary aromatic amines, such as aniline, to compounds with the nitroso functional group using a nitrous acid, such as HNO2. The diazonium salt was then used as an electrophile in a coupling reaction with an aromatic compound, β-naphthol. Recrystallization was conducted and yielded 0.18 g of a red-orange compound. The percent yield was determined to be 33.33%, based on the theoretical yield of 0.54g.…
