Columns

Columns are complex units that combine many structural elements.  The two main types of columns are tray columns and packed columns, the latter equipped with either random or structured packing. Different types of distillation columns are used for different processes, depending on factors such as the desired liquid holdup, capacity (flow rates), and pressure drop.  De Dietrich Process Systems offers columns in two materials of construction:

Glass Columns

Glass Column Product Description

Glass columnsBorosilicate glass columns have been used successfully for many years in the field of distillation operations mainly for the benefits of its anti-corrosive and transparent material of construction.

Glass Column Features

Glass distillation columns are normally filled with packing materials made of borosilicate glass, but other packing materials can also be supplied. Cooling arrangements for the distillate can use either shell and tube or coil type heat exchangers.

Glass Column Specifications

  • Diameters from 3" (80 mm) to 40" (1000 mm)
  • Heights up to 100 ft (30 meters)
  • Operate at atmospheric pressure or at high vacuum 

Options

  • Core TrayDurapack - a structured glass packing with outstanding separation properties, ideal for processes that require no metal.
  • Core-Tray support - provides a solution for the problem of metal-free support trays with a large free cross-section of 120%.
  • Liquid feeds based on the same Core-Tray design principle are also available.
  • Liquid collectors
  • Redistributors
  • Automatic control system
  • Reboiler vessels
  • Condensers
  • Boilers
  • Coolers
