How can we draw the phase envelope inside the ternary system

Homework Statement


I need to determine the minimum solvent and number of stages in an extraction process. What I need to do first is drawing the phase envelope (miscibility gap curve) inside the ternary system triangle diagram. I am given the equilibrium values of A,B and S (solvent) in both raffinate and extract phases.

The Attempt at a Solution


All examples I have the triangle is given with the curve inside in the first place. So I couldn't figure out how to draw it but I know I need it first I guess. I tried to draw it with raffinate and extract graph next to it but failed to do that.

Thanks for your courtesy. Actually I figured out how to draw it. It was simply determining the equilibrium points inside the triangle by parallel lines. Maybe it was something too complex to ask it here because it is hard to demonstrate drawing it.
