When it comes to distillation — a workhorse unit operation at chemical process plants — efforts to design, specify and operation columns are just as important as efforts to maintain, troubleshoot and revamp them.

Modern revamps typically include efforts to troubleshoot and upgrade ancillary equipment such as reboilers, condensers, pumps, valves, heat exchangers and instrumentation. Increasingly, process simulation plays a role, to help engineers evaluate the performance of proposed and existing distillation columns.

This Chemical Engineering PDF guidebook provides a diverse collection of engineering articles related to the the operation and optimization of distillation units and related auxiliary systems. 

119 pages, delivered in a PDF format.
