Phenol Removal with an equilibrium stage

  1. Nov 17, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data



    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    The problem here is that it looks like having 2 equilibrium stages requires the same flow ratio as one equilibrium stage, according to my calculations. This seems strange to me, so I am wondering if I am wrong. I also am not sure if it's asking the ratio relative to the raffinate from the first stage, or if it is a ratio of the inlet from the first stage to the raffinate of the second stage.
