Basic Distillation System Components and Operation

This interactive training unit is designed to familiarize trainees with the basic components and operation of a typical distillation system. After completing the unit, trainees should be able to describe the functions of the major components of a distillation system and describe how the distillation process occurs in a distillation tower. They should also be able to explain how refluxing and reboiling affect product purity and how bubble caps and packing affect the distillation process in distillation towers. In addition, trainees should be able to explain why it is important to monitor and control distillation tower temperatures and pressures.
