Distillation Columns

Distillation columns typical produce waste as follows:

By allowing impurities that ultimately become waste to remain in a product. The solution is better separation. In some cases, normal product specifications must be exceeded.

By forming waste within the column itself usually because of high reboiler temperatures which cause polymerization. The solution is lower column temperatures. By having inadequate condensation, which results in vented or flared products. The solution is improved condensing.

Some column and process modifications that reduce waste by attacking one or more of these three problems are outlined next.
