Introduction To Separation Techniques

Separation techniques are vital for isolating harmful or useful mixture components by leveraging an understanding of the mixture’s physical and chemical properties

Process Principles

How Does Simple Distillation Work?

Simple distillation is the most suitable method when the solute and solvent have a boiling point difference of around 100°C

Gear Pump

Types Of Industrial Pumps

There are two main types of pumps used in industrial applications namely dynamic pumps and positive displacement pumps.

Distillation Columns

Kettle Type Reboiler

A kettle type reboiler is placed beside the bottom of a distillation column since it receives any bottom liquids

Chemical Engineering

Vacuum Distillation System

Vacuum distillation is the ideal separation method for liquid mixtures with very high boiling points.
