Batch distillation pilot plant


This distillation column is completely of glass and it consists of a reboiler, of a sieve-tray column and of a condenser with reflux head and reflux valve. The distillate is collected into a glass tank after being cooled by a heat exchanger.

Training program

This unit enables to deepen the following issues:

  • Distillation of different mixtures (water / ethanol, water / methanol, methanol / propanol, etc…) at atmospheric pressure, versus the variation of the following operational parameters:
    • reflux ratio
    • feeding composition
  • Mass balance
  • Energy balance
  • Flooding
  • Calculation of the number of theoretical trays
