Distillation Column Cooling


Distillation Column Cooling


Temperature measurement is a common control parameter in distillation cooling and heating processes. Depending upon the application and process fluid, temperature control may be used for cooling distillate to condense high volatility products into liquid phase, or heating of process fluid to vaporize the high volatility components for easier separation.

Temperature control relates to product quality, process optimization and stability, resulting in improved plant safety and reduced process energy costs. While a seemingly simple parameter, understanding the importance of temperature measurement is critical to running a distillation column at peak efficiency.


Distillation Column Temperature Control Technology And Solutions

Distillation Cooling Methods

Distillate cooling typically is accomplished via several methods: fin-fan cooling, refrigeration or cooling towers. The first two methods are used to cool process vapors, causing them to condense into liquids that can be recirculated for additional processing. Cooling towers are used extensively in chemical processes to cool steam and heating water and recirculate the condensate to plant utilities or reboilers, where it can be reheated and used for many purposes.

Fin-fan cooling works by running process vapors through a tube bundle. These bundles have fins around the outside, increasing the surface area of the tube and speeding the cooling process. Large fans are used to create airflow over the tubing. Fan speed is adjusted via a variable-speed motor to provide sufficient airflow to reach the desired cooling temperature while minimizing energy costs.

Refrigerant systems run a coolant though tubing. Compression and expansion create large temperature drops to cool process vapors running through the cooling area. This method typically is used in applications where extremely low cooling temperatures are needed.

Cooling towers are air-cooled systems that work via direct heat transfer between air and the water being cooled. In cooling towers, air and water are brought into direct contact to reduce water temperature. As the temperature of the water drops, a small amount of it evaporates, reducing the temperature of the water being circulated through the tower. Water that has been heated by other processes is pumped to the cooling tower, where it first is sprayed through nozzles to create small droplets, exposing more of the surface area of the water for maximum air-water contact. Once cooled, the water can be sent to various parts of the plant. It can be used for plant utilities or sent to boilers to produce steam needed for processes such as distillation columns. Cooling towers are widely used in chemical processing because they require no special coolants and are relatively energy efficient.

Distillation columns (distillation towers) are made up of several components, each of which is used either to transfer heat energy or enhance material transfer. A typical distillation column consists of several major parts:

  • A vertical shell where separation of the components is carried out.
  • Column internals such as trays, or plates, or packings that are used to enhance component separation.
  • A reboiler to provide the necessary vaporization for the distillation process.
  • A condenser to cool and condense the vapor leaving the top of the column.
  • A reflux drum to hold the condensed vapor from the top of the column so that liquid (reflux) can be recycled back to the column.
