A customer needed to determine the feasibility of recovering acrolein from an aqueous product stream. MATRIC investigated the separation at the lab scale in a distillation column constructed of 1-inch Oldershaw sections, equipped for continuous feeds, including inhibitors. The required column design and operating conditions were determined, and the data were used to refine an ASPEN simulation model.
