Hybrid Fractionating Column

Hybrid Fractionating Column
Product Description

Customized Hybrid Fractionating Column systems combine the multi-plate efficiency of fractional columns with the gentle reboiling effect of Wiped-Film Evaporators. This proven Hybrid technology allows the purification of heat-sensitive materials similar in volatility, which could not otherwise be separated.

Available in glass, stainless steel, or alternative alloys, and from lab to pilot plant skid systems, and production process scales. Pope designs and builds these multi-component systems specifically to your application and desired results. 

A few examples of applications successfully developed on a Hybrid System are:
- Omega-3 concentration and separation
- Flavor component purification
- Fragrance component purification
- Nutritional Supplement purification
- Fatty Acid fractionating
- Fatty Acid Ester fractionating
- Terpenoid separation from natural oils

  • Nutsche Filter Dryer

    Product Nutsche Filter Dryer

    Pope nutsche filter-dryers are known and used worldwide for critical high purity separations of liquids and solids. Products include pharmaceuticals, bio-materials, electronics grade materials, fine specialty chemicals, and many others. Our nutsche filters are preferred for this separation, a critical operation because it is often the final step in an entire manufacturing process, prior to packaging. In most applications, the solids are the product, often being highly pure crystals from reaction and precipitation, suspended in a solvent slurry. After liquid from the slurry passes through the filter, the solids may be further dried and then harvested. In other less common applications, the filtered liquid discharge is the valued product, with the solids being removed and remaining in the nutsche filter. Pope’s designs accommodate both modes. Highest quality design, materials, manufacturing, welding, finishes, components and functionality are assured.

    Filter dryers provide capabilities for solids filtering, washing, reslurrying and drying in a single vessel, reducing process time and worker and environmental exposure. Pressure capability facilitates filtering rate and vacuum capability facilitates filter cake drying rate which can be additionally aided by heat and cake agitation.

  • Wiped-Film Stills & Evaporators

    Product Wiped-Film Stills & Evaporators

    Pope Scientific designs and fabricates basic to complex systems using the wiped-film short-path distillation process (also called thin-film distillation) for stills, evaporators and hybrid configurations that include fractional columns with wiped-film distillation units, centrifugal molecular distillation units, vacuum distillation, condensers, evaporation and processing vessels that meet our customer’s application requirements, with superior results.

    Equipment for Molecular Distillation Under High Vacuum
    Pope Scientific Short Path/Wiped-Film Stills (WFS) and Wiped-Film Evaporators (WFE) successfully separate volatile from less volatile components for Oils, Fats, Chemicals, Polymers, Nutraceuticals, Fragrances, etc., with a gentle process utilizing the thin-film wiping action of feed liquid through a heated cylindrical vacuum chamber with high vacuum (i.e. vacuum distillation/evaporation).

    Superior Distillation Process For Liquid Separation and Chemical Purification
    Efficient thermal separation with minimum product decomposition and maximum product quality are results you can expect using this Wiped Film-Short Path process for distillation, evaporation, concentration, separation, purification or deodorization. The Wiped Film process offers far superior performance to flash evaporators, falling film stills, rotary evaporators and similar equipment, in any processing application where heat sensitivity is a factor.

    High quality components, state-of-the-art fittings and materials, and total quality control during all phases of design, fabrication and testing result in processing equipment offering the highest performance possible.
