Vapor-liquid equilibrium data are the basic information of the system required for the design of equilibrium stages of vapor-liquid separation equipment like distillation. Equilibrium data represents the composition of the mixture in the vapor phase (y) and that in the corresponding equilibrium liquid phase (x) at equilibrium. The compositions are presented in mole fractions of the more volatile component. Equilibrium compositions are the functions of temperature and pressure. Therefore the data are reported under isothermal or isobaric conditions. However, isobaric data are required more often because industrial separations are carried out at constant pressure.
With this precision equipment, it is possible to establish vapor-liquid equilibrium (Txy) which is most important data for designing distillation system.
This data can be encorporated to Simulators like Aspen.
With this equipment, VLE data can be generated at wide range of pressure from 1 torr to 760 torr.
Distillation Pilot Plant
Major Components of the Distillation Pilot Plant:
Spherical vessels 10 L with suitable neck arrangement.
MS flame proof heating bath with digital controller having copper coil and flame proof heater with insulation and cladding.
Magnetic reflux divider with timer with Non flameproof fittings.
Vacuum Pump two stage, Oil sealed high vacuum pump, ultimate vacuum 0.005 mmHg.
G I Supporting Tubular structure and C I flanges.
PTFE Gasket and PTFE bellows will be as requirement.
All contact parts are of Borosilicate 3.3 Glass and PTFE.
ISO 9001: 2008 certified.
Vacuum and Hydro test Units.
The baths are used to heat glass vessels indirectly either by electric power or by steam in chemical process and pharmaceutical industries. The baths are fabricated out of heavy gauge Mild steel and are fitted with copper coil for passing steam or cooling water. Suitable sealing arrangement is provided at the bottom. A height adjusted vessel support provides the seat for the flask. The temperature is controlled through a digital continuous temperature controller for better energy efficiency & to prevent accidents.

The Pilot plant Run enables to achieve the results for desired mixture of different components.
Using Pilot Plant data it is possible to design for commercial level distillation columns.
Pilot plant runs will help to establish process parameters like temperature, pressure required for efficient separation of unknown components.
