The distillation and rectification units are
designed with optimized capacity and energy
conservation. At the same time to reach the
highest degree of purity of the distilled
A rigorous heat recovery, performed by
multiple effects between the columns and use
of high efficiency heat exchangers allow the
plant to reduce the energy consumption.
In the same way importance is given to reduce
utilities to help in cost of production.
The above targets are achieved also through
the adoption of the most sophisticated and
technologically advanced column internals
for a high efficiency mass transfer with
minimum pressure drops and column
Energy transfer equipment (re-boilers) is also selected in accordance to the physical characteristics and behavior of the processed fluids. Optimized design of the columns and of the control system will help towards easy plant operations and a constant and accurate control of the plant. Only 0.12 kg of low pressure steam required to anhydrify one liter of ethanol (100%) from 95% up to 99.9% v/v by pervaporation continuous process. The unit is supplied as skid assembled, requiring only a concrete platform to be leaned on and to be connected to client’s utilities.
