ISTpure Distillation Column
Available from International Surface Technologies
The SRXC series is a completely automated chemical distillation column designed to address a high purity chemical purification application across multiple industries.
The system is designed to separate water, chemicals, and/or contaminants from the chemical product being purified.
A specially designed fractionating column with a reflux stream is used to separate the materials in a continuous mode while keeping a flow rate of up to 25 – 5 000 gph (gallon per hour) on a 24 hour per day basis.
Our distillation columns are equipped with a programmable logic controller (PLC) housed in a NEMA 4X enclosure or can be remote located to a customer control room. The PLC monitors a series of relays and sensors to verify proper liquid levels, flows, temperatures and discharge valve position before starting the cycle. Any fault condition is diagnosed and clear status messages are displayed on the touch screen controller panel to ensure operator safety and ease of instruction. The system automatically shuts off in the event of a fault condition or at the end of the cycle.
Custom fitted columns and fractionating packing as well as high efficiency heaters and heat exchangers are required to achieve maximum efficiency. The SRXC-Series columns are designed to utilize hot oil, steam, or on occasion electric heaters.
