RedVector has just reformatted several Flash-based courses to now be mobile-ready and audio driven. These three courses contain the same great hallmark content with lots of animations, and comprise 1.5 hours of mobile-ready content.
Distillation: Operating Problems
How good are you at troubleshooting problems with distillation systems? This interactive online course is designed to familiarize participants with some of the problems that can occur during the operation of distillation systems. After completing this course, participants should be able to describe problems that can occur when the feed rate to a distillation column is incorrect, problems that can occur when the amount of reflux going back to the column is incorrect, and problems that can occur when the reboiler in a distillation system is operated improperly.
Distillation: System Startup and Shutdown
Getting the desired products from any distillation system depends on being able to operate the system properly. This interactive online course will teach you the steps involved in preparing and starting up a distillation system. You will also learn the procedures for a short-term shutdown, long-term shutdown, and emergency shutdown of a continuous vacuum distillation system.
Distillation: Towers, Reboilers, and Condensers
How familiar are you with the process of distillation or the components of distillation towers? This interactive online course is designed to familiarize participants with the basic principles of operation of distillation towers, reboilers, and condensers. After completing the course, participants should be able to describe the difference between a binary tower and a multidraw tower and explain how a multidraw tower operates. They should also be able to explain why the physical dimensions of a tower can vary, and they should be able to explain why vacuum distillation and azeotropic distillation are used. In addition, participants should be able to explain how various types of reboilers and condensers are used in distillation systems.
