Advantages of the Flavourtech Spinning Cone Column include:
High mass-transfer efficiency
The SCC is approximately 4 to 5 times more efficient for the removal of volatile compounds than a traditional packed column of the same height.
Negligible pressure drop
Fins on the underside of the spinning cones assist the flow of the vapour up the column thus minimising the pressure drop in the vapour phase. This means that the column essentially operates isothermally.
Short residence time
The residence time of the material passing through the SCC is typically less than 20 seconds. This, combined with low operating temperatures, avoids thermal degradation of both the volatile compounds recovered and the material processed.
The Spinning Cone Column operates under hygienic conditions and can easily be cleaned-in-place (CIP).
