Industrial Distillation and Design in Chemical Engineering

Distillation is the process of separating components of a liquid mixture by differences in boiling point or volatility. In chemical engineering and industrial applications, distillation has a universally important role in a wide range of applications for purified products, solvent recovery and green technologies . Common forms of industrial scale distillation include steam distillation, fractional distillation, vacuum, azeotropic, and extractive distillation.

Koch Modular engineers excel at tackling and solving the toughest separations problems. Non-ideal mixtures are “run of the mill” challenges for us, where our years of experience make a difference in finding the best process solution.
