A two-dimensional mathematical model, in stationary state was developed for the separation of species in a thermal diffusion column working with total reflux. The model was applied to a gas mixture of and The existence of convective currents along the column was verified, the separation of species due to the temperature gradient was predicted and the effect of the thermal gradient and of the operation pressures on the composition profiles was analyzed.
