Ulvac Introduces Vacuum Distillation Systems For Efficient Liquid Separation
Ulvac Technologies, a supplier of production systems, instrumentation and vacuum pumps for technology industries, has introduced vacuum distillation equipment and systems for liquid separation applications in the healthcare, electronics and food industries.
The distillation process uses heat to vaporize and separate compounds within a liquid. The vapor is condensed and collected as a liquid. In the vacuum distillation process, as the ambient air pressure decreases, the temperature required to boil liquid decreases. Also, steam pressure increases resulting in an increase in the distillation rate.
Ulvac vacuum distillation systems, such as the Centrifugal Vacuum Distillation CEH-400B II, are designed for highly functional, efficient small lot manufacturing and quickly changed over to handle a variety of raw material types. The systems can be used in the electronics industry for extracting impurities and balancing property requirements; in the healthcare industry for improved product purity and the extraction of unnecessary compounds; and in the food industry for enrichment and recovery, as well as product purity and the removal of unwanted materials.
