Distillation 101: A Guide to Distillation and Separation Technologies

Distillation is a separation unit operation that involves multiple countercurrent-stage steps, separating two or more volatile components. This results in the contact of liquid and vapor most generally in counterflow. Distillation 101: A Guide to Distillation and Separation Technologies provides an in-depth look at everything you need to know about distillation, including: Design procedures Equipment components Applications
