VacuumDistillationModel..::..VacuumDistillation Method

This model is used to calculate the emissions associated with vacuum operations. The model assumes that air leaks into the system under vacuum, is exposed to the VOC, becomes saturated with the VOC vapor at the exit temperature, and leaves the system via the vacuum source.

The most important input parameter to this model is the leak rate of the air into the system. If the leak rate for a particular piece of equipment has been measured, then this leak rate can be used. On the other hand, if no leak rate information is available, EmitNJ will estimate the leak rate using the system volume entered by the user and industry standard leak rates for 'commercially tight' systems.

Type: Highpoint.Sage.Materials.Chemistry..::..Mixture
The mixture as it exists before the emission.
Type: Highpoint.Sage.Materials.Chemistry..::..Mixture%
The resultant mixture after the emission.
Type: Highpoint.Sage.Materials.Chemistry..::..Mixture%
