  • Patent number: 10646795
    Abstract: The present invention describes a device for distributing incoming fluid or for collecting fluid being discharged from a column forming part of an assembly of N columns in series intended to be used in a simulated moving bed separation process. The present device can be used to very substantially reduce the non-selective volumes at each column, while at the same time providing the flow with good synchronicity.

  • Patent number: 9993743
    Abstract: The invention is a distributor tray (2) of a column for heating and/or material exchanging material between a gas and a liquid, comprising gas passage casings (4), liquid passages (6) and a secondary distribution system (7) projecting from the lower part of tray (2). Secondary distribution system (7) allows the liquid to be collected and distributed more homogeneously over the contactor. The invention also relates to a gas/fluid heat or material exchange column comprising such a distributor tray.

  • Publication number: 20160175734
    Abstract: The invention relates to a collector/distributor/exchanger tray 2 of a column for heating and/or material exchange between a gas and a liquid, comprising liquid passage means 14 and gas passage casings 4 to which gas bubbling means 15 are attached. The bubbling means allow an emulsion zone to be created in the upper part of distributor/exchanger tray 2. The invention also relates to an exchange column comprising the distributor tray and to the use of the same.
