Resumen

MORENO-JUAREZ, D.. Design and Improvement of a Condenser-Separator in a Fatty Acid Distillation System. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2005, vol.16, n.2, pp.67-72. ISSN 0718-0764.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07642005000200011.

This study presents a solution of some problems occurring in a fatty acid distillation column in which considerable losses of fatty acids occur by suction into the vacuum system as well as losses of light fatty acids in the distillation step. Also, the polluting emissions and the color instability of the products require that they be re-distilled. For this, a condenser-separator which was installed in the column to assure separation of the lighter fractions was designed. A series of changes in the design and operation for improving the efficiency of the process and the quality of the distillate were introduced. The condenser-separator designed allowed reducing the losses of fat in effluents and lowered the cost of treating the cooling water.

Palabras clave : distillation column; condenser-separator; fatty acids; column design.
