Necessity of FD
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.
Traditionally, the fine chemical and pharmaceutical industries have favoured batch distillation.
Hence we have provided multipurpose distillation unit which can perform various types of distillations.
We have 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.
Plug & Play Features
All the process piping is complete within the skid & requires external connections only.
Vacuum pump connection to the distillation system needs to be connected at one place only. Distribution of the vacuum within skid is already provided.
All the cabling within the skid is provided. The customer needs to connect only power connection to the system.
All the basic requirements of measurement & safety like vent valves, Pressure gauges, drain valves & static jumpers are provided with the system.
Condenser utility supply manifold is provided within the skid.
Reactor vessel support & platform is provided within the system.
Column with collector and distributor of suitable MOC
Equipped with PLC / SCADA based smart instrumentation.
User friendly plug and play features
Reactor of respective size with Mechanical seal, suitable agitator, Motor, Gear Box, Bottom valve & Cladded insulation.
Main & Vent condenser with product cooler.
Reflux – Forced / Gravity whichever is suitable.
Rotameters, Temp. sensors with scanner, Pressure / Vacuum Gauges.
Skid of suitable size to mount all above equipment together to form “Kilo lab distillation unit”.
Many types of Distillation Operations could be carried out in the system like, Simple Distillation.
Column Packings – Pall Rings, Raschig Rings, Saddles, Structured Packings, etc. with any suitable MOC.
Two distillate receivers of suitable size.
Distillate & reflux lines within skid.
Column with Collector & Distributor of suitable MOC.
VFD with Local flameproof panel for speed variation.
All valves within skid for process, vacuum & utility lines.
Vacuum manifold & vacuum lines within skid.
Reactor base lowering system with either hydraulic or manual operation.
Vacuum / High Vacuum Distillation.
Any type of reactions involving Liquid – Liquid, Liquid-Solid, Liquid–Gas reactions.
Any operation like continuous addition of liquid reactant, mixing of the two phase liquids, layer separation etc.
Any distillation operation involving reflux, moisture separation (Dean Stark), high vacuum distillation.
Any reaction involving highly viscous material, OR crystallization operation. • Any customer specific requirement could be discussed at the design stage.
cGMP compliant Features
After every batch the reactor base could be removed very easily & can be cleaned so as to ensure no contamination from previous batch.
We can provide CIP system to flush all nozzles of the reactor using suitable solvents.
Mechanical seal area of the top dish could be flushed thoroughly from the bottom side. Lantern stool of the agitator could be lifted easily without dismantling any nozzle of the reactor for cleaning purpose.
All the gaskets used in the system are of PTFE which are very easy to clean. These gaskets are also compatible over wide range of temperature & pressure in almost every solvent.
All the surfaces are polished to avoid any deposition of the reaction mass on the surface & improve the cleanability of the same.
All the piping & condensers are designed in such a way that there is no any liquid hold up in the system at the end of the batch.
All the wetted & non wetted parts are of Suitable grade stainless steel.
We carry out validation of the system in cGMP point of view & submit all the relevant documents along with the system.
Temperature scanner for the temperatures of Vapor, Utility Inlet & Outlet.
VFD with local flameproof panel to operate remotely.
Pressure control loop with Pressure transmitter & Pressure controller in flameproof construction.
