Uhde’s Morphylane® technology for narrow boiling range aromatics cut extraction is available through the ParamaX® Alliance.Morphylane technology has imposed itself as the industry standard for this application. It employs the concept of extractive distillation where a solvent is used to modify the relative vapor pressures of various hydrocarbons in such a way that Aromatics can be separated from non-Aromatics by simple distillation.
- Compact and cost-effective design is the key characteristic of Morphylane technology that uses a reduced number of pieces of equipment compared to other technologies.
- Cost effective recovery and high purity aromatics is achieved owing to a carefully selected solvent: NFM is a non-corrosive material, thermally and chemically stable. No other chemical needs to be injected in the process which contributes to the ease of operation.
- Divided wall technology has recently been applied to the Extractive distillation concept, providing for further reduction of investment and operating costs.
