What equipment is needed for distillation?

Distillation is a process of separating the chemical components in a boiling liquid combination based on the volatility changes of the chemical components. Distillation is sometimes referred to as a unit operation because it is usually performed as part of a larger chemical process. DEGONG is a supplier of distillation equipment and other processing equipment that can meet various industrial machinery requirements.

Distillation has many commercial applications. It is used to separate crude oil into different fractions for different applications, including transportation, electricity production, and heating. In order to remove pollutants such as salt in seawater, water needs to be distilled. For industrial applications, air is distilled to separate its components, most notably oxygen, nitrogen, and argon.

Distillation process

Distillation is a method of separating components or compounds from a liquid using boiling and condensation processes. In order to be able to separate successfully, the boiling point of each element must be different. The more complicated the distillation process, the closer the boiling points of the components in the liquid.

Batch distillation is the most common type of distillation in the laboratory. Three distillation equipment are required to complete the process:

  • The source liquid is heated in a reboiler or pot.

  • The heated steam is cooled back to liquid state in the condenser.

  • The device that collects the concentrate/distillate is called the receiving bottle.

Distillation type

Distillation can take many forms, and the one used will depend on the substance being processed. Here are the three most popular methods:

  • Fractional distillation-This is a method of removing different compounds from a combination by distilling the same liquid multiple times at higher temperatures.

  • Steam distillation-used to extract temperature-sensitive chemicals, these chemicals may decompose if extracted using a higher boiling point procedure.

  • Vacuum distillation-the boiling point of certain substances is abnormally high. In some cases, it may be more beneficial to reduce the pressure in the column above the material, allowing the lower vapor pressure components of the combination to evaporate.

Certain designed scrapers can mix waste solvents that are being distilled, causing powder or flakes to be discharged from the distillation system. If you don't use a scraper, the garbage will turn into a thick syrup or paste. Distillation into powder or flakes usually produces harmless substances that can be discarded. If your distillation waste is thick syrup, you will almost certainly have to dispose of it as a hazardous material.

Multi-effect distillation

The purpose of multi-effect distillation is to improve the energy efficiency of the process and can be used for desalination or in some cases as a stage of ultrapure water production. Compared with single-effect distillation, the effect number is inversely proportional to the kWh/m3 figure of recovered water, and is related to the amount of water recovered per unit of energy. Approximately 636 kWh/m3 is a result.

Through the input of heat energy, multi-stage flash evaporation can produce more than 20 effects.

Vapor compression evaporation-commercial large machines can produce approximately 72 effects through electrical energy input.

There are many alternative multi-effect distillation techniques, including a technique called simple multi-effect distillation, which uses multiple chambers with intermediate heat exchangers.
