The Batch Distillation Unit, "UDDB", is basically composed by a boiler on which different types of interchangeable columns can be adapted (plate columns and Raschig Rings column). An eight plate column, a reflux system and a tank for the distillation are included.
The steam that goes to the head of the column is sent to a total condenser. The cooling water flow that crosses the condenser is regulated and indicated in a flow meter.
The pressure loss in the column can be measured with a manometer.
The temperatures of the system are measured by temperature sensors placed in strategic positions.
