Thermal engineering company Soluciones Integrales de Combustion has installed a particulate filtering cyclone in an alcohol distillery. The plant carries out activities in the distillation and rectification of alcohols from by-products obtained in the vinification of grapes and defective wines.
The distillation process consists of a process of heating the liquid until its most volatile components pass to the steam phase, and subsequently condensing the steam, recovering the liquid form. The purpose of the process is to obtain the purest form of the component.
The project to install the particulate filtering cyclone is part of the modernization process of the ethyl alcohol fermentation distillery facilities, within its planned plan for improvement of product manufacturing processes, as well as for obtaining new products. The objective is to provide greater added value and improve the quality and competitiveness of the company in the market.
Particulate Filtering Cyclone
The cyclone installed by Soluciones Integrales de Combustion is designed for the application of acting as a separator in the filtering of particles from the production process. It will be used as a treatment to obtain new elements such as tartrate, present in the process. Sodium tartrate is a sodium salt of tartaric acid, used in industry as an emulsifier in the manufacture of pectins and gelatins, and is commonly found in confectionery and sauce-making products.
In this way, the separating cyclone can recover the particles by taking advantage of the centrifugal force to which the dispersed particles are subjected, to allow the separated material to be recovered and reused.
Soluciones Integrales de Combustión provides industrial combustion engineering services that comprehensively cover the needs of any type of process: supply, facilities start up and commissioning, maintenance and repairs. In addition, they are aimed at adding added value in fields such as energy saving, sustainability, reliability and the reduction of unnecessary stops in facilities
