Hi

I would like to know there in which book I can find dephlegmator/partial condenser design procedure. My final year design project is deethanizer distillation column. I used partial condenser but I have difficulties to find information.

The design of condensers for the condensation of vapors from noncondensing gases iscomplicated by unusual conditions of heat transfer not encountered in total condenser design. Incondensing part of the vapors in a gas stream, all of the properties of the gas stream vary greatlyas the condensable vapor is removed. The heat-transfer coefficient of the gas film, the mass rateof gas flow, and the physical properties of the gas stream can change considerably ascondensation proceeds. The condensation depends upon the diffusion of the vapor moleculesthrough the gas mixture to the condensing surface.
