Why You Shouldn’t Trust “Instant” Quotes for Process Systems

What causes people to look for an instant quote? Pressure from their superiors, easy website forms, fast-track timelines, budget deadlines, etc. the list goes on. Whatever the case is, instant quotes are a risky move with a plethora of issues. Instant quotes can be beneficial in understanding a wide price range for a project but […]

Steam Distillation: When, Why, How

Steam stripping is an efficient way to remove organic compounds or Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) from a water-based process stream. Generally speaking a pound of steam will vaporize 4-5 pounds of organics because steam has a latency of vaporization of 1000’s BTUs/lb vs. 200 BTUs for organics. How Industrial Steam Stripping Works: Steam distillation, or […]

Fractional Distillation

Fractional distillation is the process of separating a substance into its parts (or fractions), taking advantage of different vapor pressure properties of those substances. Fractional distillation is often used as a synonym with “distillation” because distillation always takes advantage of a difference in boiling points of component substances for separation. The basic steps to distillation are: […]

When Vacuum Distillation is Useful

Industrial distillation can be achieved in a variety of ways. If the elements of your solution have distinct vapor pressures and boiling points, a basic distillation system might be all you need. However, vacuum distillation is the perfect solution when you have elements that decompose when heated at atmospheric pressure – or – that have […]

How to Scale Distillation Systems

Distillation column design begins when you provide three specifications to an experienced distillation process engineer: your process requirements, budget constraints and key properties of your chemical solution. Process Design Engineers use professional simulation software, such as Aspen HYSYS or Aspen Plus, to model the separation process inside the column. Your column designer provides experience with: […]

Pilot Plant for C02 Capture To Be Built in Denmark

Akermin Inc., has announced they will be providing a carbon capture pilot plant to a waste-water treatment facility in Copenhagen, Denmark. This project will be the largest demonstration in the world of a biocatalyst removing CO2 from an industrial gas stream. Akermin will use the project to prove the commercial viability of their flue gas treatment technology. With commercial viability […]
