FRACTIONAL DISTILLATION COLUMN

The distillation column made of SS material. An electrically heated reboiler would be installed at the bottom of the column. The vapors from the top of the column are condensed in the condenser by circulating cooling water. The condensate is collected in reflux drum and feed back to the column as reflux. The complete column is insulated

RANGE OF EXPERIMENTS TO BE CARRIED OUT:

  1. To carryout Fractional distillation.
  2. To calculate the number of trays required
  3. To establish the overall tray efficiency of the fractional distillation
  4. To study the practical significance of McCabe – Thiele method.
