Dividing Wall Column (DWC) is an effective idea to reduce energy consumption of distillation process by about 15%~50%.
Most of dividing wall columns are equipped with an active liquid splitter.
Also the vapor splitting imparts a key role in successful operation of dividing wall columns.
Wide applications of dividing wall column have been deterred due to lack of useful active vapor splitter.
The Enhanced Active Vapor Distributor (EAVD) created by Benit M enables to control the vapor split ratio easily just by adjusting the liquid level of chimney tray, which the chimney is surrounded by the cap having vapor flow holes.
This innovation will encourage the use of Dividing Wall Column technology in various fields of Oil & Gas industries.
