Duration: 2 Days
Request a proposal for the dates and location of your choice   QUOTE REQUEST

Trainees will study different rigorous methods to analyse issues related to batch distillation (design, quality control...) using the BatchColumn software.

At the end of the session, participants will be better equipped to evaluate the optimization potential of the different parameters that govern their column and to plan for modification on their equipment.

Who should attend?
This level 1 training session is designed for those involved in safety, sizing, design and optimization studies of distillation columns, in particular engineers working on batch production processes or in laboratories. It is also relevant to those involved in solvent regeneration and in VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) treatment.
