Continuous distillation pilot plant


The solution having to be distilled, stored in a tank of plastic material, is sent to the distillation column by a metering pump after crossing a pre-heating exchanger. The distillation column is completely of glass and it consists of a reboiler…

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 flow rate
    • feeding composition
  • Mass balance
  • Energy balance
  • Flooding
  • Calculation of the number of theoretical trays
