Batch operated units allow the distillation and rectification of diverse products or multiple component mixtures in one unit. It´s the multi-tasking-master in distillation applications.
The multi-purpose solution for diverse and changing compound mixtures.
Batch distillation is very flexible, but is typically used for small and medium-sized capacities. For larger units, a continuous distillation pant is usually more energy efficient and economical.
Two operational modes are possible for the batch process:
Batch distillations are frequent in the pharmaceutical industry for small scale solvent recovery applications, for the purification of high valuable oils or also in wastewater treatment units of small capacities.
Where product purities superior to feasible concentrations through rectification are required, one of these technologies come to operation: Molecular Sieve Technology, Distillation with Entrainer, and Pervaporation through Hydrophilic Membranes.
With state-of-the-art pilot plants and test benches our R & D Center is optimally equipped for testing in the fields of distillation technology.
The core of the distillation range of products is the multiple-effect pressure/vacuum rectification system. The design is largely determined by the characteristic properties of the feed and the specific requirements of the final product.
The thermal vapor recompression applies steam jets to raise the temperature level of vapor flows in the plant. Condensation of these boosted flows is then used for the heating or evaporating of lower temperature process flows. Thereby the steam consumption is minimized.
Production lines with optimized integrated process steps.
GEA uses different types of reboilers for the energy input to the distillation columns. The choice of the suitable type depends on surrounding process and product parameters.
The fabrication of compact skid mounted units for smaller product quantities has several advantages for our client.
Columns form the core of any distillation plant.
