HETP determination in High Vacuum Product Distillation

Dear Sir,

I have an impurity of 1.5% in my pproduct . The product is an oil and the only way to remove the impurity is by high vacuum distillation. I have found the boiling points of the products and they differ by 30 deg C at 760 mm Hg.

I need to know what would be theoretical plates required for the separation.

Kindly advice.

Sundar.

Sundar,

Sundar,

I would try your post over in the general chromatography section. The environmental analysis folks that would be paying attention here, would have little background in vacuum distillation.
