Packed Bed Distillation Column

The column is made of Stainless Steel material packed with Borosilicate Glass rasching rings. An electrically heated reboiler is installed at the bottom of the column. The bottom product is collected in the tank. The vapours form the top of column are condensed in the shell and tube type condenser by circulating cooling water, supplied by laboratory overhead tank. The condensate is divided into


To estimate the batch distillation curves for a binary system and verify the binary batch distillation equation for a known packed height.
To operate the column under total reflux condition and estimate the HETP for the packing.
