Distillation of crude gasoline to remove impurities in United States. Cracking process to convert additional portion of crude oil into gasoline. Crude oil is distilled under high pressure. By this process, it cracks and yields 40% gasoline. Battery of pressure stills. Smoke arises from the stills during processing. Animation shows the process of further distillation of crude oil to obtain gasoline. The still is charged with crude oil. It is fired with mechanical stokers. A high pressure is created in still from which cracking takes place. Then the gasoline passes off as vapor with some heavy oil. Fractionation takes place. The heavy ends are returned for further cracking. Gas vapors are passed in condenser coil. Then it is passed in receiving drum. Excess gas is taken off to maintain an even pressure.
