Determination of boiling ranges of crude oil products under vacuum in fully automatic operation.


Key Features:

  • Operate in strict accordance with ASTM D1160 by using 1 single receiver.
  • Using a new type of automatic fraction collector with 5 receivers, 200 mL each.
  • Fraction collector can be operated by volume or by preselected cut temperatures.
  • Software kit to perform distillation similar ASTM D5236 with dynamic vacuum reduction procedure down to 0.1 Torr.
  • Flask sizes available 500, 1000, 2000 mL.
  • Tempered automatic discharge pump for easy drain of even viscous product into open fraction collector.
  • Receivers can be closed with cap GL 45.
  • New Pilodist brand touch screen panel control.
  • Fully automatic reporting and storage of results.
  • Atmospheric distillation.
  • Water removal (dehydration) process prior to distillation.
  • Biodiesel distillation.
  • LIMS connectivity.

The distillation is automatic, from the initial boiling point to the pre-selected end boiling point or detected break-off. The criteria for break-off are:

  • The pre-selected final AET (atmospheric equivalent temperature) is reached.
  • The maximum bath temperature is reached.
  • The maximum flask temperature is reached.
  • The pre-selected distillate volume is reached.
  • The flask insert cracks.
  • The distillate pressure drops.
  • Product lack in the flask.
The distillation volume is measured automatically in a tempered receiver. The yield is calculated in percentage to the charge quantity. Distillation report, final data and distillation curve are printed out.
