Methylal Refining Technology
Proprietary Technology and Plants
Methaldehyde has excellent physical and chemical properties, that is good solubility, low boiling point, and water compatibility can be widely used in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, household goods, automotive supplies, pesticides, leather polish, cleaning agents, rubber Industrial, paint, paint, ink and other products, but also because the methyl acetal has a good ability to oil and volatile, as a cleaning agent can replace F11 and F113 and chlorine solvent, it is an alternative to freon, reduce volatile organic compounds (VOCs ) Emissions of environmentally friendly production.
As the methyl acetal and water, methanol to form azeotrope, the traditional distillation method can only get about 92% of the methylaldehyde ternary azeotrope. However, in the methylal industry, in addition to part of the solvent uses 85% -93% purity, the rest need more than 99% purity of the methyl acetal products. At present, the industrial formaldehyde refining methods are mainly salt distillation, liquid-liquid extraction, ion exchange, adsorption and pressure distillation method.
