Flavors and Fragrances
Flavor and fragrance chemicals are heat sensitive at the high temperatures of their atmospheric boiling points. Distillation for fragrances and flavors is carried out under vacuum to minimize thermal degradation. For stable operation, the vacuum system for the distillation column has to be ultra-reliable, and has to be able to go on-line quickly.
