Towers, Reboilers, and Condensers

This interactive training unit is designed to familiarize trainees with the basic principles of operation of distillation towers, reboilers, and condensers. After completing this unit, trainees should be able to describe the difference between a binary tower and a multidraw tower and explain why the physical dimensions of a tower can vary. They should also be able to explain why vacuum distillation and azeotropic distillation are used, and how various types of reboilers and condensers are used in distillation systems.
