Two Canadian Companies are presently engaged in the commercialization of Pass-through distillation.
One is Fielding Chemical Technologies Inc., Canada’s foremost chemical recycler. Fielding is building a PTD pilot plant for advanced treatment of hazardous industrial waste.
The other is Drystill Holdings Inc. This is a start-up technology company that has invented and patented equipment specifically for PTD, including the Stripper/Absorber Module (SAM) described in the fifth and sixth lectures of PTD 101. Fielding’s pilot plant is being built around a Drystill SAM prototype.
This is a picture of Drystill’s prototype SAM. It contains 100 heat pipes 25 mm in diameter and 550 mm in length.
Here is the same SAM installed on Fielding’s pilot plant framework.
