20150623 Harmsen Consultancy – Mr. Jan Harmsen - “Innovations in Distillation: The combined effects of factors behind this innovation boost”

Harmsen takes us back and forth from conventional to improved distillation set-ups like reactive distillation for hydrodesulphurization, reactive-extractive distillation for methyl-acetate, dividing wall columns. In fact only two main system suppliers build it and only a few operating companies use it, while the 400 units built worldwide show huge investment savings (40-80%) and operating savings (20-50%)

From rules of thumb, mapping and PSE methods of Harmsen, BASF and PDC success factor for innovation in distillation were derived with examples and an outlook for major improvements. www.harmsenconsultancy.nl/
