Distillation is the most common separation technique and is energy intensive. Distillation can consume more than 50% of a process plant’s operating energy cost. A way to improve an existing plant’s operating cost or to reduce a new distillation system’s operating cost is to improve the efficiency and operations by correct equipment selection, maintenance, process optimization and control.
Product recoveries, purities and energy utilization can be improved in most distillation systems. This cannot be achieved without first understanding of distillation principles and design. These principles need to be understood in advance of designing, operating, and troubleshooting a distillation column for the operator, designer, or problem solving to be effective.
This course will guide the participants to develop key concepts and techniques to design, operate, maintain and troubleshoot a distillation system. These key concepts can be utilized to make design, maintenance and operating decisions. Training and development are an investment in future success – give yourself and your employees the keys to success.
