How Does It Work?
Every application is carefully reviewed by our process engineering team. Simpler applications such as a binary ethanol-water purification will be guaranteed based on the successful design of hundreds of similar systems and our extensive library of real operating data. Our pilot plant in Houston stays busy testing client feed material for the purpose of providing data upon which to base more complex Process Performance Guarantees.
For example, multicomponent azeotropic systems with limited available data may require the development of vapor-equilibrium data (VLE), subsequently regressed to activity coefficients. Koch Modular will develop the VLE data, which helps to facilitate modeling and then move to proof of concept distillation testing, based on representative or actual customer feed material.
