Pilot plant studies provide the ultimate in assurance that a distillation column design will be successful
Pilot plant studies provide the ultimate in assurance that a distillation column design will be successful.
Simple systems can be designed based on mathematical modeling of the vapor-liquid equilibrium, but confidence in mathematical models diminishes as the complexity of the feed increases. Pilot plant testing provides more satisfying and more economical answers when systems are encountered that:
- are not defined chemically.
- involve several interactive components.
- vary broadly in composition.
ERI provides laboratory and onsite testing of batch and continuous, simple, azeotropic and extractive distillation. We at ERI will be happy to discuss your distillation testing requirements.
