Columns

Columns and towers are work on the principal of mass transfer. Our solutions include columns for distillation, processing, and exhaust. Commonly implemented among our products:

  • Distillation Columns
  • Process Towers
  • Packed and Trayed Columns
  • Fractionators
  • Absorbers
  • C32/C2 Splitters
  • Demethanizers
  • Exhaust Stacks
  • Ladders / Platforms / Handrails

Trays and packing are a large part of the development and engineering of the columns. You can speak to our engineers about the best solution for your needs. Whatever the demand is for filtering, distillation, batch, or continuous operation, our towers will meet your spec. The columns come in custom sizing and can be deployed for atmospheric pressures, vacuums, or high pressures internally or externally.
