What does a Distillation Coloumn manufacturers do?

A distillation column manufacturer specializes in designing and producing distillation columns. These are tall cylindrical towers used in distilling processes to separate and purify different components of a mixture by boiling and condensing them. Distillation columns play a crucial role in various industries like petroleum, chemical, pharmaceutical, and food processing. The manufacturers use advanced technologies and quality materials to build customized distillation columns based on the specific requirements of their clients. They design columns with varying diameters and heights, reboilers, condensers and trays, and optimize their internal arrangement to achieve maximum separation efficiency. They ensure that the columns meet the highest standards of safety and quality by adhering to industry regulations and codes. The manufacturers also offer installation, commissioning, and maintenance services to ensure that the columns operate at peak efficiency for the longest possible time.

What is a Distillation Columns ?

Distillation columns are tall vessels used for separating mixtures of liquids based on their boiling points. They are commonly used in the chemical and petrochemical industries for separating various components of crude oil, natural gas, and other chemical mixtures.

The column works by applying heat to the mixture causing it to vaporize. The vapor rises through a series of trays or packing material, where the lighter components rise to the top and the heavier components remain at the bottom. The top of the column contains a condenser, which cools the vapor and converts it back into a liquid that is collected in a separate container.

Distillation columns come in many configurations and can be designed to separate different types of mixtures based on their specific boiling points and chemical properties.


Distillation is the most widely used separation technique used today in industries such as the petrochemical, chemical plant and natural gas processing. NSC Industries™ manufacture small and large distillation columns for a wide range of applications. Internals are generally supplied by clients or through renowned well vendors specializing only on internals. Through good engineering and quality workmanship, we ensure that our columns are working at the most efficient levels possible.

In fractional distillation, the vapour is condensed and then re--evaporated when a further separation occurs. It is difficult and sometimes impossible to prepare pure components in this way, but a degree of separation can easily be attained if the volatilities are reasonably different. Where great purity is required, successive distillations may be used.
