Program Objective

This down-to-earth course gives comprehensive coverage of distillation technology, with particular emphasis on the problems that can occur and how to solve them.  It provides an excellent opportunity to develop a working knowledge of key techniques that can promote trouble-free operation and reduce distillation cost.

YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO
* Troubleshoot a distillation column and determine what may cause poor performance
* Evaluate existing column performance and develop new designs
* Avoid common causes of capacity bottlenecks, tray damage, down comer sealing problems, packed tower distributor  malfunctions and many other operating difficulties
* De-bottleneck a column to improve capacity and/or separation
* Control and operate a distillation column
* Validate your tower simulation

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Engineering and supervisory personnel who are involved in
* Operating
* Troubleshooting
* De-bottlenecking
* Designing and starting up of distillation processes
