A deisobutanizer, operating at a pressure equal to 500 kPa, contains 40 stages, a partial reboiler, and a total condenser. This column separates a mixture of ‐butane and ‐butane. The feed location is stage 20 counting from the top. The feed flow rate is equal to 21.56 kmol/hr and contains 31.45 mole% ‐butane and 68.53 mole% ‐butane.
