The oil/solvent mixture leaving the solvent extractor is commonly referred to in the industry as “miscella”. The miscella leaving the solvent extractor contains 70-80% solvent by weight. The purpose of distillation is to thermally separate the miscella into a liquid oil fraction and solvent vapour fraction. The energy efficiency of distillation is maximized through optimum use of the available heat in the discharge vapour stream from the Desolventiser Toaster, available heat from the condensate flash tank, and heat recovery within distillation itself.
