Rectification of Alcohol

In 2018, we successfully implemented a project for the construction and implementation of a technological plant for the rectification of alcohol, column layout, and steel structures for a plant with a capacity of approximately 2200 L / h, as well as full automation.


Dehydration of Alcohol

During 2022 we successfully implemented a project for an alcohol dewatering plant with a capacity of 2500 dm3/h, with the final product being 100% anhydrous. The system was implemented including complete automation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is distillation? The difference between distillation and rectification.

The simplest form of distillation, also known as simple distillation, involves evaporating a portion of the raw material once and then condensing it. In this way, the raw material is divided into two products – the non-evaporated liquid (depleted liquid) and the condensed vapor – the distillate. The purity of the product obtained by simple distillation is not always satisfactory. To meet the requirements for the quality of the distillates obtained, the rectification method has found wider application. This method is based on the countercurrent principle. In which the gas phase is directed against the liquid phase obtained by the condensation of the vapor. The two phases differ in temperature and composition. When they come together, the temperatures equalize and components are exchanged. The gas phase is enriched with lighter components, while the liquid phase has heavier components.

How is ethyl alcohol made?

A common arrangement for producing ethyl alcohol in an agricultural distillery consists of a distillation column and a processing column. The first is designed to separate ethanol from the fermented mash, while the second aims to increase the alcohol content in the final product. In addition, advances (methanol, acetic acid, etc.), heavy alcohols, and wastewater are taken from the treatment column. This type of arrangement allows the production of high-quality alcohol.

How to dehydrate ethyl alcohol (spirit)?

Ethanol solutions are separated by distillation, yielding solutions with an ethanol content of approximately 95% by mass. This ethanol forms an azeotropic mixture with water. Further dewatering is often carried out by adsorptive processes using zeolites – the pressure fluctuation adsorption (PSA) method. When dewatering alcohol in dewatering systems, we use hygroscopic substances such as type 3A molecular sieves, which adsorb water but not ethyl alcohol. The crystalline structure of the molecular sieve, its affinity for water, and the defined pore size allow the adsorption of molecules smaller in size (water) than the pore size of the sieve. While material with larger molecules (ethanol) passes through the sieve. This process is reversible, allowing the regeneration of the screen and its reuse in a cyclic process. Through the use of a comprehensive automation system and the integration of the distillation and dewatering systems, the maintenance effort is comparatively low. In addition, molecular sieves have high chemical and thermal resistance.
