Acetic acid

Acetic acid is produced by liquid phase oxidation of Acetaldehyde in presence of Potassium Permanganate and Manganese Acetate, at a moderate pressure of 5 kg/cm2 in a specially designed reactor. The crude acid is passed through a pre-heating vessel to knock off undesired per-compounds so as to improve the yields. Further it is taken to the scrubbing system for recovery of un-reacted Aldehyde. Finally the crude is taken to a distillation system to obtain highest purity acetic acid as bottom product and a byproduct weak acid is obtained from the top of the column.
