While many of the unit processes described in Chapter 4 may be used individually, or in pairs, there are technical and economic advantages to be gained in large scale operations, by grouping together larger numbers of units. The combinations normally used in practice are considered below in increasing order of complexity. The results are indicative of the trends given by the various processes, and are not intended to be absolute values for all cases. The systems described are shown schematically in Figure 36.
