2 - Question

What is true if debutanizer is placed first in sequence?
a) N-butane is LK and isobutane is HK
b) Isobutane is LK and n-butane is HK
c) Both are LK
d) Both are HK
Explanation: If the debutanizer is first placed in sequence then the specifications require that N-butane is LK and isobutane is HK.

Explanation: The lightkey split is sharp whereas high key split is not.

5 - Question

Why is column pressure fixed after design problems are solved?
a) Because the answer of design problems is column pressure
b) The design problems are independent of column pressure
c) The design problems are difficult
d) The design problems do not use column pressure while solving
Explanation: Since there are no available algorithms for solving design problems, the design problems are difficult. Hence column pressure is decided later.
