Horizontal distillation column technology

Gas-liquid contact operations are required for the separation of mixtures based on differences in the chemical properties (volatility, solubility, etc.) of various components.

Katyal, A., Independent Researcher/Inventor

Gas-liquid contact operations are required for the separation of mixtures based on differences in the chemical properties (volatility, solubility, etc.) of various components. Gas-liquid contact operations form the backbone of numerous hydrocarbon-based industries, such as the refining, petrochemicals, natural gas liquids (NGL) and alcohol industries. FIG. 1. The design of a horizontal gas-liquid contact process. Conventional gas-liquid contact operations are traditionally conducted in vertical tray columns or packed columns. Due to economic considerations, vertical tray columns are used in all cases where column diameters are > 0.6 m or whe
