V-Tex® Stripping Technology
V-tex® strippers achieve higher removal efficiencies than traditional technologies without moving parts or random packings which are prone to fouling.
V-Tex® Stripping Technology is used for the stripping of liquors across a range of sectors including pharmaceutical, petrochemical, fine chemical and oil and gas industries.
For steam and air stripping the benefits of using V-tex® include:
- High efficiencies of removal/stripping, in low and variable stripping gas flows
- Compactness – typically one third to one fifth the size of a packed column for the same performance
- No internals to foul and due to the alignment of the opposed jet nozzle and the intense spray pattern and high velocity droplets in the cyclonic spray chamber is self-cleaning
- Amyl acetate
- Amyl alcohol
- Butyl acetate
- Carbon tetrachloride
- Dimethyl formamide
- Fermentation broths
- Isopropyl alcohol
- Methyl iso butyl ketone
- Methylene dichloride
- Saturated salt solutions
- Tert butanol
- Tributyl phosphate
Some typical examples of its use are included in the V-tex® case studies. In addition V-tex® pilot plants are available.
