In a packed column stripper contaminated condensate is fed into the top of the column and flows down over the surfaces of the packing. Steam flows into the bottom of the tower providing both heat and a vapor flow. As the contaminated condensate flows down and the steam flows up the temperature of the condensate increases, which forces the organic components, which have a lower boiling point, out of the liquid and into the vapor phase.
