Fractional Distillation

Expensive and high-grade products / solvents are not produced in large quantities, as they are typical for pharmaceutical industry & also for fine/special chemical areas. Small, flexible facilities are necessary for these applications, which can be easily cleaned and quickly adjusted for the next product. They need corrosion resistant materials that do not interact with the product and do not contaminate it.In addition, it is frequent that only limited space is available for the assembly of the facility, and therefore compact design is preferred.

KERONE has developed a systems perspective to distillation technology, whereby a fully functional distillation unit, including peripheral equipment, is built and assembled in our workshop as a skid, then delivered to the customer as a complete operational system. we have provided multipurpose distillation unit which can perform various types of distillations. Traditionally, the fine chemical and pharmaceutical industries have favored batch distillation.
