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

 What Is Azeotropic Distillation?

Azeotropic distillation separates azeotropic mixtures by adding an entrainer that changes the relative volatility of the substances.

Process Principles

Steam Distillation Principle

Steam distillation, or steam stripping (depending on its application) is a distillation separation technique which utilizes steam as a carrier vapor to separate temperature-sensitive volatile components in a solution at a much lower temperature than its boiling point.


Types of Distillation: Definition, Process, Uses & Examples

Distillation is a reversible physical separation process that utilizes the relative volatility of the mixture components. In fluid mixtures, the more volatile compound is easier to isolate because it escapes the solution as gas more quickly even before the solution boils.

Solid Liquid Extraction (Leaching)

Solid-Liquid Extraction is a separation technique which separates a solute attached to an insoluble solid phase via an extraction solvent.
