Fig. 4 shows the key parameters of each plate related with the kinetic controlled hydrate formation process. The driving force is high on the top two plates whilst it is relatively low and remains stable on other plates. The reason may be the solvent feed has no hydrate content in this single column simulation, and then the difference of Gibbs free FLAG tag Peptide between vapour and hydrate on the top plates is larger than on other plates. The hydrate formation rate increases greatly from the top plate to the bottom plate. Its value is menstrual cycle sensitive to the turbulence degree of the fluids on the plates. Because of both bigger vapour and liquid flow rate at the bottom plates, the Renaults Number is bigger on the bottom plate than the top plate. As a result, the total vapour consumption increases from the top plates to the bottom plates.
