ABSTRACT
This work has been carried out to develop dynamic models for a reactive packed distillation column using the production of ethyl acetate as the case study. The experimental setup for the production of ethyl acetate was a pilot scale packed column divided into condenser, rectification, acetic acid feed, reaction, ethanol feed, stripping and reboiler sections. The reaction section was filled with Amberlyst 15 catalyst while the rectification and the stripping sections were both filled raschig rings. The theoretical models for each of the sections of the column were developed from first principles and solved with the aid of MATLAB R2011a. Comparisons were made between the experimental and theoretical results by calculating the percentage residuals for the top and bottom segment temperatures of the column. The results obtained showed that there were good agreements between the experimental and theoretical top and bottom segment temperatures because the calculated percentage residuals were small. Therefore, the developed dynamic models can be used to represent the reactive packed distillation column.
