Hello engineers! 

 

I want to ask you a simple question in which I cannot think an answer. 

generally, in the reboilers of the distillation columns, do they use liquid medium to heat the bottom stream of the column? I am asking if there is any application in which they use liquid as heating medium of the reboiler of distillation column,

 

Thank you in advance!

panoskagiou,

 

Yes, liquid medium such as hot oil heating system can be used instead of steam in re-boilers of distillation columns....
