The SRXC-Series is a completely automated chemical distillation column designed to address a high purity chemical purification application in multiple industries. The system is designed to remove water, other chemicals, and or contaminants from the chemical being purified. Low part per million (ppm) levels can be attained for reuse. A specially designed fractionating column with a reflux stream is used to separate the materials in a continuous mode while keeping a flow rate of up to 25-5000 gph on a 24 hour per day basis.
SRS’ distillation/fractionation columns are equipped with a programmable logic controller (PLC) housed in a NEMA 4X enclosure or can be remote located to a customer control room. The PLC monitors a series of relays and sensors to verify proper liquid levels, flows, temperatures and discharge valve position before starting the cycle. Any fault condition is diagnosed and clear status messages are displayed on the touch screen controller panel to ensure operator safety and ease of operation. The system automatically shuts off in the event of a fault condition or at the end of the cycle.
Custom fitted columns and fractionating packing as well as high efficiency heaters and heat exchangers are required to achieve the throughput demands of the application. SRXC-Series Columns are designed to utilize either hot oil, steam, or on occasion electric heaters.
