Acetone and Water mixture formed azeotrope and inflections point depending on the operating temperature and pressure. Hence, this mixture cannot be separated by using simple distillation. In this work, a systematic study of the separation of acetone water with the addition of entrainer by extractive distillation is performed. Acetone-Water extractive binary column distillation system is simulated in PETRONAS iCON Software. The simulations supported data and findings were taken from literature review and experimental studies of the same systems. The objective of the project is to investigate the effect of reflux ratio, feed ratio, and number of stages on the product purities. The challenge in this project is to find the most effective entrainer as well as to obtain the optimum separation parameter in order to have a feasible separation process. Three different types of entrainers have been tested in the simulator as to determine the most effective entrainer for the separation of Acetone-Water mixture.
