Q & A > Question Details
I am into esterification of benzyl group. We manufacture Benzyl Acetate. The problem we face is chocking of column. The salty material gets trapped into paul rings (packing for column), resulting into colouration of end product. Is there any chemical way out of it?

There is a soap wash recommended by SGS Shell Global we have used but like all chemicals it depends on the shear force. Better still would be a minor modification to the unit which allows periodic mechanical cleaning of the rings without chemical or removal.
