The separation column used for experimentations one model can be configured in two ways: one - two columns of different
diameters placed one within the other extension, and second way, one column with set diameter , . The column
separates the carbon isotopes based on the cryogenic distillation of pure carbon monoxide, which is fed at a constant flow rate
as a gas through the feeding system ,.
Based on numerical control systems used in virtual instrumentation was done some simulations of the distillation process in
order to obtain of the isotope 13C at high concentrations. The experimental installation for cryogenic separation can be
configured from the point of view of the separation column in two ways: Cascade - two columns of different diameters and
placed one in the extension of the other column, and second one column with a set diameter. It is proposed that this
installation is controlled to achieve data using a data acquisition tool and professional software that will process information
from the isotopic column based on a logical dedicated algorithm. Classical isotopic column will be controlled automatically,
and information about the main parameters will be monitored and properly display using one program.
Take in consideration the very-low operating temperature, an efficient thermal isolation vacuum jacket is necessary. Since the
“elementary separation ratio”  is very close to unity in order to raise the (13C) isotope concentration up to a desired level,
a permanent counter current of the liquid-gaseous phases of the carbon monoxide is created by the main elements of the
equipment: the boiler in the bottom-side of the column and the condenser in the top-side.
