Methanol Distillation

Sieve ColumnWhy should you consider us for your distillation column needs?

RPS has installed to date more than 16 Methanol Distillation Columns. Our Methanol Distillation column is integrated into a Biodiesel Production facility to recover and purify Methanol from Biodiesel and Glycerin streams. Sometimes, we even handle Glycerin composition along with the Methanol feed stream, depending on the application to reduce capital cost and energy demand. Our Methanol Distillation Column is capable of purifying Methanol to less than 1000 PPM moisture (Guaranteed). It is extremely critical to maintain Methanol purity less than 1000 PPM to be reused in the Biodiesel Production Process to produce quality Methyl Esters. RPS offers a very cost competitive equipment compared to any other manufacturer because RPS manufactures its vessels, heat exchangers, columns internals such as packing, trays, distributors, etc. If you need distillation equipment, send us your application at
