Suatu kelompok operasi pemisahan, yang dipergunakan di dalam pengolahan produk pertanian, dapat disebut pemisahan secara kontak keseimbangan. Proses pemisahan berdasarkan kontak keseimbangan mensyaratkan terjadi perubahan fasa dari komponen- komponen campuran. Peralatan yang berdasarkan pada kontak keseimbangan antara lain adalah peralatan untuk proses absorbsi atau desorbsi gas, distilasi, ekstraksi, crystalisasi dan pengeringan.
1.Absorbsi atau desorbsi gas K ontak antara aliran gas dan aliran bahan cair contoh : Hidrogenasi minyak, yaitu gas hidrogen digelembungkan menembus minyak yang kemudian bereaksi. Hidrogen diserap oleh minyak, bereaksi dengan ikatan tidak jenuh di dalam minyak untuk mengeraskan lemak tersebut Karbonasi minuman. CO 2 dibawah tekanan, dilarutkan dalam bahan cair minuman sehingga apabila tekanan dilepaskan perlahan-lahan pada sat tutup botol dibuka akan terbentuk busa
2.Ekstraksi Bahan cair dipergunakan untuk melakukan pemisahan suatu komponen dari bahan padat/cair Contoh : Ekstraksi minyak dari bahan mentah alamiah seperti kacang tanah, kacang kedelai dan biji-bijian Ekstraksi bahan cair-bahan cair dipergunakan di dalam pemurnian lemak hewan Ekstraksi pada industri gula, yaitu ketika sukrosa yang larut dipindahkan oleh air ekstraksi dari tebu atau bit
3.Distilasi Suatu proses dimana salah satu bagian bahan diuapkan. Komponen yang berbeda, berbeda pula daya penguapannya. Contoh : Pemisahan minyak atsiri Pemisahan bau dan aroma yang tidak dikehendaki Pemisahan anggur dan spiritus
4.Crystalisasi Komponen yang larut dapat dipindahkan dari larutan dengan menyesuaikan kondisi sedemikian rupa sehingga larutan menjadi lewat jenuh dan menyebabkan terbentuknya kristalisasi. Contoh : Pemurnian gula dan garam 5.Pengeringan Pemisahan air dari bahan yang tertinggal di dalam bahan pangan.
Absorbsi atau desorbsi gas Spray Tower
In operation, the dirty gas rises up through the multiple spray zones ( number depending on service ) where the larger dust particles drop out by gravity or by impinging on the spray droplets. High mass and heat transfer take place as the gas passes through the spray and mixes with liquor droplets. After passing through the spray zone the gas enters the entrainment eliminator where entrained liquor droplets are removed. Typical Application : Coarse particle removal and gaseous absorption in industrial and power boilers, and in chlorine, ammonia, aluminum and fertilizer plants. -General gas cooling.
This is mainly used for cooling down of gas, gas pre-absorption, and dust pre-collecting. In order to adjust your installation conditions, we are able to propose either horizontal or vertical type. Spray Tower

Steam Distillation Essential oils are used in perfumes, handmade soaps, bath salts, lotions and other natural bath and body products. These volatile oils can be used individually or blended to create a special bouquet. One of the ways essential oils are extracted from plant material is through steam distillation. The following diagram provides an overview of the steam distillation process. Distilasi
1.Fresh or dried botanicals are placed in the retort or still. 2. Pressurized steam is introduced into a lower chamber of the retort and passed through the botanical ingredients to vaporize the volatile oils in the plant material. 3. The steam and oil vapor mixture is then passed through a condenser. 4. The essential oil is then extracted from the floral water or hydrolat in the separator.

oan "active volume", designed case by case, to get both required an "active volume", designed case by case, to get both required residence time for crystal growth and mother liquor desupersaturation. oa given agitation (recirculation rate) rated to control the extent of supersaturation arising from the evaporation, and to keep the temperature difference in the heat exchanger within reasonable limits. oa special design of the liquid-vapor separation area to minimize the carry over losses and avoid the formation of an excessive amount of fines, which is highly detrimental to crystal growth. It is much like a simple forced circulation evaporator, but it includes specific features to allow correct crystallization, namely
Depending upon specific process requirements, additional devices can be provided. They are: internal baffles, used mainly for excess mother liquor overflow and /or withdrawal of fines when crystal growth is slow or disturbed by impurities build-up (see Figure 2), elutriation leg, to improve product purity and to deliver a narrow crystal size distribution, an internal scrubbing section to reduce to very low value the carry over losses, or even to provide stripping or absorption devices when a volatile compound must be recovered. Typical products are: NaCl (food or technical grade), KNO3, Na2, SO4, K2 SO4 NH4Cl, Na2CO3H2O and Citric acid
Oslo Type Crystallizer Close Type Oslo type crystallizer also called classified- suspension crystallizer is the oldest design developed for the production of large, coarse crystals.
The basic design criteria are twofold: desupersaturation of the mother liquor by contact with the largest crystals present in the crystallization chamber keeping most of the crystals in suspension without contact by a stirring device, thus enabling the production of large crystals of narrow size distribution Typical products are: (NH4)2 SO4 Na2SO4 AgNO3 hydrated mono sodium glutamate mono ammonium phosphate (MAP)
The classifying crystallization chamber is the lower part of the unit. The upper part is the liquor-vapor separation area where supersaturation is developed by the removal of the solvent (water for most applications). The slightly supersaturated liquor flows down through a central pipe and the supersaturation is relieved by contact with the fluidized bed of crystals. The desupersaturation occurs progressively as the circulating mother liquor moves upwards through the classifying bed before being collected in the top part of the chamber. Then it leaves via the circulating pipe and after addition of the fresh feed, it passes through the heat exchanger where heat make-up is provided. It is then recycled to the upper part.
Oslo Type Crystallizer Open Type is worth to be considered when very large settling areas are required or when the vessel must be fabricated out of high cost alloys or metals.
