Well, I may have a ChemE degree, but I can't for the life of me remember most of the gas phase equillibrium details that I probably once was tested on. I am working with a process that will consist essentially of a stream of air saturated with methanol and water vapor that will be routed to a condensor at 44°F. This will condense out a lot of the water/methanol. Could someone point me in the right direction to get a rough idea of how much methanol will be in the headspace after passing thorugh the condensor? The idea is that there will be a constant flow of the vapor stream and I need to estimate how much methanol vapor is escaping.
