Hello all, we are shutting down our vacuum distillation unit for a planned turnaround. This is the first time we are shutting down the unit after it was commissioned. I would like to ask from your various experiences which method is more preferable to empty the tower. Can we use the bottom pump? Can we increase the pressure of the tower to let say 1barg before emptying it? Can we just drain it by gravity? etc.
