Distilling Apparatus

Distilling Apparatus

 

a device that is designed for separating liquid mixtures into fractions of different compositions by means of simple distillation. The mixture is brought to a boil in a distillation vat, or still, and the vapors are drawn off to a cooler-condenser. Distilling apparatus are used in the food industry for producing essential oils, aromatic alcohols, and cognac alcohols; they are also used in petroleum refining and wood chemistry. Rectification columns are used for more complete separation of homogeneous liquid mixtures into constituents.
