Distillation is a process in which a liquid or vapour mixture of two or more substances is separated into its component fractions of desired purity, by the application and removal of heat. This is a process used for centuries to separate compounds into their principal components. One such use comes to mind. Liquor stills to make “moonshine” were prevalent in the United States for many years. Read more

A Packed column utilizes packing to contact between the phases (liquid-vapor) on the surface. A major advantage to packed columns is the reduction in pressure across the column. Typically the column pressure drop for a packed column is less than that of a trayed column because of the percent open area. Read more

This article will discuss natural gas and how it is changed from the ground to your hot water heater or furnace. The process to do this is called Fractionation. It comes from the word fraction – which means a part of the whole. In fractionation, the natural gas will be broken into its components (or fractions). In order for this process to happen, many processes and many pieces of equipment are required. Read more

In this article, the topics are arranged according to the sequence of manufacture of a pressure vessel under the following assumptions: 1. The dished ends and cones are bought from outside with the material supplied by the vendor under proper certification. 2. All plates and piping materials, including but not limited to pipes, elbows, flanges, studs/ bolts and nuts, gaskets, etc., are bought out items from reputed vendors with proper certification.

Tubes are the basic components of shell and tube heat exchangers, providing the heat transfer surface between one fluid flowing inside the tube and the other fluid flowing across the outside of the tube. The tubes may be seamless or welded and most commonly made of copper or steel alloys. Other alloys of nickel, titanium, or aluminum may also be required for specific applications. Seamless tubing is produced in an extrusion process; welded tubing is produced by rolling a strip into a cylinder and welding the seam. Welded tubing is usually more economical. Read more
