How KKS Organics has been Purifying Solvents with Column Distillation Plant Since 1994


             KKS Organics is a renowned name in the chemical industry for its high-quality solvents. Established in 1994, the company has been producing solvents through column distillation plants. In this blog post, we will discuss how KKS Organics has been using this method to purify solvents and why it's a superior method.

Section 1:  

what is column Distillation?


            Column distillation is a process used to separate mixtures of liquids based on their boiling points. It involves heating a mixture of liquids to vaporize the component with the lowest boiling point and then condensing it back into a liquid form, leaving behind the higher boiling point components in the still. This process is repeated until all the components have been separated and collected.

There are several types of column distillation techniques, including:

  1. Simple Distillation: This is the most basic form of distillation and is used to separate two liquids with a large difference in boiling points. The mixture is heated in a flask, and the vapor is collected in a condenser tube, where it is cooled and condensed back into a liquid form.

  2. Fractional Distillation: This is used when the difference in boiling points between the components of a mixture is small. The mixture is heated in a column with a fractionating column (a long tube packed with a material that provides a large surface area for the vapor to condense on) and the vapor is allowed to rise through the column. The vapor condenses on the surface of the packing material and is returned to the still. This process is repeated until all the components have been separated.

  3. Vacuum Distillation: This is used to separate liquids that have high boiling points or are thermally sensitive. The mixture is heated under reduced pressure, which lowers the boiling point of the components and allows them to be distilled at lower temperatures.

  4. Steam Distillation: This is used to extract essential oils from plants. Steam is passed through the plant material, which releases the essential oils, and the steam and oils are collected and separated using a condenser.

Overall, column distillation is a widely used process for separating mixtures of liquids based on their boiling points. The specific technique used depends on the properties of the mixture being separated and the desired outcome.

The Importance of Solvent Purification 


Solvent purification is a critical step in many chemical processes, including research, manufacturing, and pharmaceuticals. Here are some of the reasons why solvent purification is essential:

  1. Accuracy: In many chemical reactions, the purity of the solvent is crucial to achieving accurate results. Contaminated solvents can affect the outcome of a reaction, leading to inaccurate data and flawed conclusions.

  2. Safety: Impure solvents can be hazardous to handle and can pose a risk to workers' health and safety. Some solvents are highly flammable or toxic and can cause explosions or other accidents if they are not properly purified.

  3. Reproducibility: Researchers often need to replicate their experiments to confirm their results or build on previous research. If solvents are not purified correctly, it can be challenging to reproduce the exact conditions of a reaction, making it harder to verify the original findings.

  4. Consistency: In manufacturing, the purity of solvents is critical to maintaining product quality and consistency. Impure solvents can lead to batch-to-batch variations in product quality, which can be unacceptable in some industries.

  5. Environmental concerns: Many solvents are hazardous to the environment, and their improper disposal can cause significant harm. By purifying solvents, researchers and manufacturers can minimize their environmental impact and reduce their carbon footprint.

Overall, solvent purification is an essential step in many chemical processes, and it is vital to ensure that solvents are pure and free from contaminants to achieve accurate results, maintain safety, and minimize environmental impact.

Column Distillation Process 


            Column distillation is a separation process that is commonly used in the chemical industry to separate mixtures of different components based on their boiling points. The process involves heating a mixture of liquids to a temperature at which one or more components vaporize, and then condensing the vapor back into a liquid to collect the pure components.

The column distillation process typically involves a tall, vertical column that is packed with a material that provides a large surface area for vapor-liquid contact, such as glass beads, metal plates, or structured packing. The mixture to be separated is introduced at the bottom of the column, and heat is applied to vaporize the components with lower boiling points. As the vapor rises up the column, it cools and condenses on the packing material, and the pure components are collected at different heights in the column.

The process can be optimized by adjusting the temperature and pressure inside the column, and by adjusting the flow rates of the feed and the products. The efficiency of the separation can also be improved by using multiple stages of distillation, such as a series of columns with different packing materials or by using a reboiler to recycle the condensed liquid.

Column distillation is widely used in the chemical industry to separate mixtures of petroleum products, solvents, and other chemicals, and it is also used in the production of distilled spirits, such as whiskey and vodka.


                In conclusion, KKS Organics has been producing high-quality solvents through column distillation plants since 1994. The company's dedication to using this method has resulted in a superior product that meets the stringent requirements of various industrial processes. If you're looking for high-quality solvents, KKS Organics is the company to trust.

Understanding Column Distillation: A Reliable Method for Solvent Purification

           Introduction:                  Column distillation is a widely used method in factories for separating solvents based on their boiling points. It is a highly reliable and efficient process that can produce high-purity solvents for various industrial and laboratory applications. In this blog post, we will take a closer look at column distillation and how it works. What is Column Distillation? Column distillation is a process that involves passing a mixture of solvents through a column filled with a packing material such as beads or mesh. The packing material separates the components based on their boiling points. The solvent vapor rises through the column and condenses on the packing material, where it is collected and re-distilled to produce a purified product. How Does Column Distillation Work? The process of column distillation involves heating a mixture of solvents to generate vapor, which is then passed through a column filled with trays or plates. As the vapor rises

What we do in KKS ORGANICS?

 Type of work          In KKS Organics, We take the recovery solvents into one of our 9 columns. and remove fractions or impurities into our drums and fill the Main pure solvent into new drums OR cleaned and vacuum dried storage tanks. Material (recovery mix solvent) will come into KKS ORGANICS in either Drums or Tanker. A Minimum of 3000 Litres of Material/Recovery Solvent  is required to take into our columns.           Our faculty in KKS ORganics will carefully load/unload Drums - with the equipment we have and store them into our Gowdown and pump it into our Reactors for further process before pumping it into columns for purification.
