More than likely, it is a part of a system that integrates other components to carry out multiple operations.  Many batch applications require the use of distillation overheads to carry out additional process functions, as reaction and distillation are often combined.  Basically, what happens here is the materials undergo a chemical reaction to create the desired products and then these products are separated into an end product and a by-product via distillation.
