Versatile distillation apparatus with high separation efficiency. Suitable for solving difficult separation problems and for the production of pure substances, aromatic compounds of high molecular weight, fatty acids etc.
The system can be equipped with 2 different column types for different applications for alternative use, both columns will fit into the electrical column heating mantle to ensure adiabatic operation: an optional concentric tube column (CTC) and packed column with wire mesh packing.
The system is standard delivered with a wire mesh packed column.
The concentric-tube-column (not included) is especially versatile unit with highest separation efficiency and up-to-date processor control.
The special advantages of the concentric-tube-column are:
- extremely low pressure drop
- highest separation efficiency
- minimum hold-up
- all-glass construction
- static design (no rotating parts inside the column)
The separation efficiency in the concentric-tube-column is based on the physical principle of the mass transfer between vertically rising vapour and the spirally trickling film of liquid in a concentric annular gap made of glass. The column consists of two concentrically melted-in, especially selected and calibrated glass tubes.
The concentric-tube-column is perfectly suitable for the separation of temperature sensitive substances.
Gentle distillation by temperature controlled electrical bath with product circulation. Operation range from ATM up to vacuum.
