dc.description.abstract The separation of liquid mixtures into their various components is one of the major operations in the process industries . Distillation is the most widely used method of achieving separation of different component in side streams.The types of Distillation Process are Batch Processes and Continuous processes.Sieve trays are simply metal plates with holes in them. Vapour passes straight upward through the column through the plates . The arrangement, number and size of the holes are design parameters, which should be specified .The advantages of sieve trays are simpler and cheaper construction has led to their increasing use; The Objectives of this research is to design a sieve trays column and Comparing the results of using manual calculations with computer software Aspen Hysys. The mixture of acetone-water was separated in a sieve tray column.The equilibrium data were obtained and plotted in diagram to obtain the number of theoretical stages. The design parameters. the column efficiency, column height, tray space and column diameter were calculated .Using the same data, Hysys software was used to determine the above design parameters. These design data were compared with that calculated manually and they found to be satisfactory . number of tray 25,25tary diameter 0.8 m ,0.77 m . weir length 0.64m , 0.60m weir hight 0.045m ,0.05m tery space 0.55m ,0.05m in Hysys software and manunl calculation respectively .this study recommneded Control tuning and stability of the system have to be investigated. further work may be carried out for design of a sieve tray column for multicomponents systems .Flooding against column operation conditions needs to be investigated . en_US
