Do you know how Distillation and Fractionating Column work?

Distillation of crude oil is separation of the components of crude oil at different boiling points. This is done in two stages. They include: vaccum and atmospheric stages. The process of distillation is a separation process not chemical process. It is one of the unit operation in chemical engineering processes. This separation …

What you need to know about crude Oil Distillation process

Crude oil distillation is the separation of different components of crude oil in a distillation column at different temperatures. Crude oil is consist of hydrocarbon compounds that vary in temperature range (boiling points, from methane to asphalt). The main objective is to separate lighter hydrocarbon and heavy hydrocarbons. Then cracking …
