Methanol CH3OH is synthesized from carbon monoxide and hydrogen in a catalytic reactor 100 mol/h of fresh feed is fed to the process containing

Methanol (CH3OH) is synthesized from carbon monoxide and hydrogen in a catalytic reactor. 100 mol/h of fresh feed is fed to the process, containing 32.0 mol% CO, 64.0 % H2 and 4.0 % N2. This stream is mixed with a recycle stream in the ratio 5 mol recycle/1 mol fresh feed to produce the feed to the reactor. This feed to the reactor contains 13.0 mol% N2. The reactor effluent goes to a condenser from which two streams emerge: a liquid product stream containing all the methanol formed in the reactor, and a gas stream containing all of the CO, H2 and N2 leaving the reactor. The gas stream is split into two fractions: one is removed from the process as a purge stream, and the other is the recycle stream that combines with the fresh feed to the reactor.
