Modular Vacuum Distillation

The Refining Process

A Vacuum Distillation Unit (VDU) is another step in the refining process. Using Atmospheric Tower Bottoms (ATB) from the Atmospheric Distillation Unit (ADU), the VDU utilizes the lower boiling point resulting from vacuum to further separate ATB into more products. Products derived from the VDU include light vacuum gas oil, heavy vacuum gas oil, and vacuum residuum.
