According to the product characteristics and the separating tasks individual applicable solutions must be found and designed.
Columns form the core of any distillation plant.
Computer modelling and the access to large product data bases allows a precise , effective and reliable design of our plants.
Additionally GEA has its own Research and Developpment Centre at its disposal . This enables the evaluation of the most suitable solutions for complex or new tasks with various possibilities of testing of different internals and processes parameters.
Certain pilot plants are available as mobile units and can therefor be installed at a customer´s site. Data is captured and plant operating behaviour modelled by means of the latest programs. This possibility can be precious for the clients before making big investments: he achieves a higher grade of safety regarding indispensable product qualities as, for example , the organoleptic properties of his drinking alcohol.
GEA is free to apply column internals of different suppliers thus having the advantage to chose the best design for the process tasks.
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 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.
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.
