An economical way to distill large volumes of products

The patented Plate Molecular Still is capable of distilling large quantities of product (10 ton/h and more), under medium- or high-vacuum conditions. The system is suitable for applications involving temperature-sensitive substances, such as oils, fats, pharmaceuticals, vitamins, methyl esters and more. The product is fed through a distribution system to the outer surface of the evaporator plates within a cylindrical vessel. In this arrangement, the heated and cooled panels lead to a high evaporation and condensation surface in the smallest possible space. As a result, the economics are more favorable when using the Plate Molecular Still compared to more expensive short-path distillation processors, says the company. — GIG Karasek GmbH, Gloggnitz, Austria
