In process industry, it is very common that two or more raw materials are reacted in presence catalyst/s and the product purified. In reactive distillation, it is possible to combine chemical transformation and purification by distillation in a single piece of equipment saving on time and cost. Reactive distillation is highly desirable whenever the process permits.
In our system, thin beds of catalyst/s are encapsulated vertically between layers of structured packing up to the designed height of packed bed in the distillation column.
FenixTM offers FXReact structured packings for such specific requirements with recommended catalyst/s.
This packing finds wide application in various organic syntheses like
manufacture of fatty acids etc.
Salient features :
separation efficiency high
reaction capacity/rate can be high
flexible design regarding catalyst element
available in 50 mm diameter upwards
can be used for laboratory experimental columns
can be scaled up easilyeacted
