The Distillation Process Training Course has been developed to understand the Distillation and Fractionation Process. The training course covers the basic principles involved in the process and goes on to cover the various Distillation Practices and various equipment and components like Distillation Column, Distillation Tower, Bubble Cap Trays, etc. Primary calculations like the McCabe-Thiele Method are covered in intricate detail using Graphics and Animation. The training course, designed with extensive Graphics and Animation, gives a virtual Practical exposure on the Process and is sure to provide a very useful insight to personnel involved in Maintenance and Operation of the Distillation system.
