BATCH DISTILLATION
BATCH DISTILLATIONBatch distillation, which is the process of separating a specific quantity (the charge) of a liquid mixture into products, is used extensively in the laboratory and in small production units that may have to serve for many mixtures. When there are c components in the feed, one batch column will often suffice where c − 1 simple continuous distillation columns would be required.Many larger installations also feature a batch still. The material to be separated may be high in solids content, or it might contain tars or resins that would plug or foul a continuous unit. The use of a batch unit can keep solids separated and permit convenient removal at the termination of the process.
