Distillation & Absorption Columns

Distillation is the most widely used separation technique used today in industries such as the petrochemical, chemical plant and natural gas proccessing. Large distillation columns or distillation towers are constructed to properly house this type of industrial distillation processing. 

TiFab fabricates many types of distillation columns including, but not limited too:

  • Fractional distillation columns
  • Vacuum distillation columns
  • Azeotropic distillation columns
  • Packed distillation columns
  • Titanium columns
  • Zirconium columns
  • Absorption columns
  • Stripping columns for chemical, petrochemical, and gas processing plants.  

A company's distillation proccess can contribute to more than 50% of the total plant operating costs. TiFab takes this into account by producing custom distillation columns that operate at the most efficient levels possible.  Tifab only uses the highest quality materials when manufacturing thier distillation columns and absorption columns.

 Materials used to construct distillation columns include the following:

  • Zirconium clad Steel
  • Hastelloys (C276, C2000, B2, B3, etc.)
  • Inconnels (Alloy 600, 625, 825, etc.)

TiFAB Distillation Columns

We fabricate our distillation columns with both tray columns and packed columns, with internal trays and packing usually supplied by the customer (however our designs include support rings for trays or packing). TiFab builds distillation columns to meet ASME Section VIII Div 1 and 2, JIS, Stoomwezen, TUV, and the Chinese ML (formerly Chinese SQL).

All mechanical engineering design for our distillation columns are carried out in-house with several design softwares at our disposal.  (PV-Elite, CodeCalc, Compress, etc.)
