About Performance Distillation Solutions


Performance Distillation Solutions can trace its roots back to 1948 when Dr. Michael Cannon, Ph.D., the visionary founder of Cannon Instrument Company, filed a groundbreaking U.S. patent. This patent described a revolutionary distillation packing material characterized by half-cylinders of rolled, thin metal strips punctuated with a dense arrangement of holes, featuring jagged ruptures over their convex surface. The subsequent year saw the unveiling of this innovative packing material to the world through an article titled “A New Distillation Packing,” published in Industrial and Engineering Chemistry. This seminal moment marked the inception of a legacy that continues to shape the landscape of distillation technology.
