  • Industry: Specialty Chemical (Agriculture)
  • Company Size: Fortune 500
  • Location: USA
  • Customer Use Case: Solvent Recovery, Distillation



A Fortune 500 company in the specialty chemical industry required a highly specialized continuous distillation system for recovering highly valuable but also toxic and flammable solvents from production waste stream. The system needed to be compact but accessible for maintenance, road-shippable, and compliant with extremely elaborate corporate engineering specifications. With a looming plant turnaround deadline, the company faced significant challenges in designing and implementing the required system within the stipulated timeframe. 




EPIC Systems’ engineering team collaborated closely with the client to develop a tailored solution to meet their unique requirements within the specified constraints. The solution included a turnkey modular skid design, encompassing all necessary components for efficient and seamless integration into the customer’s facility and complementing their existing processes. This tower was strategically divided into two 40-foot sections for ease of transportation and on-site assembly. 

Additionally, EPIC managed the procurement of materials and fabrication of the modular components, ensuring adherence to quality standards and project timelines. 

Despite the challenging timeline, EPIC expedited the fabrication and delivery process to ensure the batch reactor system was ready for installation before the scheduled plant turnaround.



  • Optimized Space Utilization: The compact and modular design of the distillation tower maximized space utilization within the customer‘s facility, meeting the stringent height and footprint requirements without compromising on functionality or accessibility for maintenance.
  • On-Time Delivery: Despite the challenging project schedule, EPIC’s efficient project management and execution ensured timely delivery of the batch reactor system, enabling the customer to meet their operational requirements and plant turnaround deadlines.
  • Safety and Compliance: By adhering to stringent safety standards and corporate specifications, EPIC delivered a batch reactor system that prioritized safety and compliance, mitigating potential risks associated with handling toxic and flammable chemicals. 
  • Enhanced Operational Efficiency: The integration of the modular distillation tower into the customer‘s processes facilitated solvent recovery, contributing to improved operational efficiency and resource utilization within the facility.
