This course covers all essential distillation concepts likely to be faced by process support, operations, and design engineering personnel. It covers vapor liquid equilibrium, process design, column operation, and simulation issues, along with specification and selection of hardware.
Course content includes
- Fundamentals: Vapor Liquid Equilibrium and Stages and Transfer Units
- Practice: General Column Design, Tray Column Design, Packed Column Design, Other Devices, and Efficiency
- Advanced Topics: Scale Up, Start-up & Troubleshooting, and Enhanced Distillation.
What You’ll Learn
This course fully explains all essential distillation concepts and includes equations. You will gain an excellent understanding of the fundamentals of distillation including vapor liquid equilibrium; the practice of distillation including types of column design, and advanced topics like troubleshooting.
Who Should Attend
You should attend if you are an engineer or chemist who must troubleshoot and solve difficult distillation problems in the plant, or conceptualize difficult distillation problems in the engineering office or laboratory. Ideal for both veterans and those with only a few years’ experience, the course addresses all essential distillation concepts and is especially beneficial to process support, operations, and design engineers.
John P. Farone is a sought-after consultant to the chemical industry with over 40 years of experience in process separations, process simulation and equipment design. He has unique knowledge of the practical design and operation of trayed and packed distillation towers and their internals. Previously, he was with The Dow Chemical Company for 36 years where he specialized in process engineering in distillation and stripping.
