Give me three (3) examples for chemical engineering process that involves distillation.
Please be clear. If you could provide me with the website links for your examples it would be great.
1. Distillation of fermented products to yield out high alcohol contents for beverages. Alcohol contents have higher volatility (low boiling points) making it easier for the alcohol to be separated as distillate.
2. Large crude products are sent through distillation columns to yield out high volatile products (low boiling points) of commercial value. In the petroleum industry, high volatile products like aviation oil, Gasoline and high-speed diesel are formed from distillation as distillates.
3. Desalination of saline water is another application of distillation. Water starts boiling at a lower temperature leaving out the salt in the column. Where water is separated as distillate.
