Customized Distillation Pilot Test Services Offered in TX
Reboilers can be kettle, thermosiphon, forced circulation or falling film, heated by steam, hot oils, or electricity. Alternatively, direct steam addition can be utilized.
Operating pressures from 30 PSIG to 1 mmHg absolute are possible. Heat loss is minimized by means of heat tracing and insulation.
The pilot column is run over a range of operating conditions to measure separation performance and help determine optimum conditions. Other observations, such as operating stability, foaming, fouling, or thermal degradation, are also made and recorded. This type of data and information is extremely important for process scale-up.
