Packed Columns/Towers for Distillation and Gas Absorption

Packed columns are useful for distillation, especially whenever we have to carry out operations at low pressure (vacuum distillation) and whenever we are dealing with heat-sensitive materials. Packed column distillation design P…

Steam Distillation Process | Steam Distillation of Essential oils

Steam distillation (It is a distillation process with open steam ) is used:  (I) for separating a high boiling component from the non-volatile impurities. (ii) for separating a high boiling mixture into different fractions where…

What is Reflux, Reflux Ratio, and Optimum Reflux Ratio?

Reflux definition:  The liquid which can be obtained by condensing the overhead vapour and returning some of the liquid to the top of the column is known as reflux .  Reflux Ratio in Distillation Column  The reflux ratio of the …

Counter Current and Co-current Mass Transfer Operation

Mass transfer processes that involve two fluid streams are frequently carried out continuously by passing the fluid streams either in a counter-current or a co-current fashion in a column device. The average driving force for a …

Fractionating Column | Rectification Or Batch Distillation

Fractionating column : In this separation method a part of the condensed liquid is returned back as reflux and a maximum enrichment of the more volatile component in the vapour is obtained by successive partial vaporization and c…
