Application Descriptions

  • Ethanol Dehydration: Removal of water from ethanol using molecular sieve dehydration breaking the ethanol-water azeotrope in the process
  • Glycerin Dehydration: Removal of water from glycerin using flash evaporation
  • Isopropyl Alcohol Dehydration: Removal of water from IPA using molecular sieve dehydration breaking the IPA-water azeotrope in the process
  • Methanol Dehydration: Removal of water from methanol using molecular sieve dehydration (can be an economical alternative to distillation)
  • Methanol Recovery from Biodiesel: Removal and recovery of methanol from Biodiesel using flash evaporation
  • Vacuum Distillation: Distillation at vacuum allows for products to be vaporized at lower temperatures so components with high bubble points can be distilled more economically. Vacuum distillation can also be used to “break” an azeotrope allowing for higher percent yields.
