Recovery By Distillation
The chemical industry is constantly seeking alternatives to the escalating cost of disposal for its by-products, especially when they contain expensive residual products or raw materials.
Recovery of these valuable chemicals can be achieved by separating them from the rest of the waste, either for direct process re-use or conversion into useful intermediates, adding value and preserving energy and resources.
The two main facilities Midland Oil can provide are
-The Luwa wipe film evaporator which operates over a wide range of temperature and vacuum conditions, with short contact times for thermally sensitive materials
-The Short path distillation unit (SPDU) which can accomodate volumes down to five litres and is ideally suited to the recovery of silicone oils, oxometalic complexes and essential oils.
