Multipurpose reaction and distillation apparatus
This apparatus could do combination experiments of Chemical reaction, dehydratation reaction and distillation by this apparatus only.
When two compounds have nearly same b. p., one of compounds is alcohol or aldehyde, ketene this apparatus could separate them by combination of esterification reaction, acetalization reaction and after that simple distillation.
- It doesn’t need high performance distillation column if samples’ boiling points were very close or not.
- Using this apparatus only.
- It consists of zeolite dehydration membrane for dehydrate, so it doesn’t need dehydration support solvent (example; toluene).
- It uses reusable strongly acidic ion exchange resin for catalyst.
- It has removable stainless steel basket inside for catalyst reuse.
- It need not change vessel between reaction and distillation operation.
- Easy to scale up to production plant.
- For broad range of application.
- Possible to cost down.
