Fractional distillation question
« on: January 03, 2021, 08:33:54 PM »
I’m fractionally distilling an oil and my two questions are what packing should I buy for the column and what column should I buy

What oil are you distilling, and what do you hope to recover?  What is the scale of the process?  There might be some other questions along these lines that would bring this question into focus.

So its 209° and 230°? I think a medium column is enough, like this;

You need glass-spirals as filling.
