Thin film technology is used allowing the distillation of products at high boiling points in conjunction with low product residency time inside of the equipment, increasing product yield and lowering thermal decomposition in light hydrocarbons that can affect the quality of the final product.
The advantages of the installation
Widely contrasted technology with adaptable capacity to flow rates from 0.4 ton/hr to 16 ton/hr, with high operating vacuum.
The primary equipment, FALLING FILM, is comprised of a vertical tubular beam, an equitable product delivery system is designed at the top in each of the tubes.
The product descends the tubes through gravity, since the tubes are indirectly in contact with the heated part, they are heated in such a way that the volatile component, methyl ester in this case, is distilled. The methyl ester or distilled Biodiesels (FAME) and inert gases are driven to the condenser and later to the vacuum unit / group.
