What is stripping in refinery?

What is stripping in refinery?

Stripping is a physical separation process where one or more components are removed from a liquid stream by a vapor stream. In industrial applications the liquid and vapor streams can have co-current or countercurrent flows. Stripping is usually carried out in either a packed or trayed column.

What is a component splitter in HYSYS?

Component splitter works as its name says: it redistributes each of the components present in the feed stream in between the so called “overhead” and the “bottom” streams. Depending on specified conditions of both outlet streams, you may need to include an energy stream feeding the splitter as well.

What are stripping columns?

Stripping columns are used to remove volatiles from water such as volatile hydrocarbons (e.g., benzene, toluene and xylene), volatile chlorinated hydrocarbons (e.g., per and tri) from water. The Logisticon stripping columns are made of the so-called countercurrent principle.

Is stripping column same as distillation column?

What is the difference between stripping and distillation? The primary difference is in the method used to separate the feed’s constituents. While distillation uses heat to boil the volatiles into vapor and then condense and remove them, stripping uses the principles of absorption.

What is column distillation?

In chemical analysis: Distillation. A distillation column is a tube that provides surfaces on which condensations and vaporizations can occur before the gas enters the condenser in order to concentrate the more volatile liquid in the first fractions and the less volatile components in the later fractions.

What is a splitter in chemical engineering?

In a process, a splitter is a unit operation that splits a line into two or more directions. This is similar to a separator except the product lines have the same chemical makings.
