Distillation is the most often used means to separate two or more components, exploiting the physical properties of different boiling points.

Maximize LPG recovery from fuel gas using a dividing wall column

GTC Technology US, LLC: Gentry, J. C.  |  Bhargava, M.  |  Nelson, C.  |  Siddamshetti, V.

Refiners are challenged to recover LPG from mixed fuel gas streams due to the difficulty of separating the lighter components from bulk gas. To maintain profitability, it is essential to direct all of the crude oil components to the optimum disposition. This practice is becoming more significant due to increasing LPG demand in some countries and the supply of lighter crudes in countries such as the US.
