This high efficiency, fractional distillation system is an ideal tool for automatically purifying or analyzing a wide range of materials. It is especially ideal for small sample sizes. Common applications include:
- Crude Oil Distillation
- Petroleum Distillation
- Close Boiling Point Separations
- High Purity Fractional Distillation
- Essential Oil Purification
- Vacuum Distillation
- Solvent Purification
- Biodiesel Distillation
The 36-100 spinning band distillation system features:
- All Glass and Teflon Components
- 200 Theoretical Plate Distillation Column (maximum at atmosphere)
- 100 to 1,000 ml boiling flasks
- Automatic and Manually Operated Distillation Systems
This spinning band distillation system is a very powerful tool for separating close boiling components. O-ring seals allow joints to be grease free. Vacuum distillations can be carried out to as low as 0.1 mm Hg. Special glassware allows receivers to be changed without interrupting the vacuum regulation.

Automation and Accessories:
All our distillation equipment is available in fully automatic or manually operated models. Manually operated systems are inexpensive and simple to operate. Automatic models are microprocessor controlled. All the distillation functions are fully automated to make the distillation process easy and efficient from beginning to end.
Automatic Controller (Optional PC Interface)
The automatic controller minimizes the amount of operator time required for each distillation. Select your stored distillation program and let the controller perform the distillation. Collect up to 8 fractions. Each fraction has programmable:
- Open Temperature
- Close Temperature
- Heat Rate
- Reflux Ratio
- Programmable shut down at end of distillation
Each distillation program has a programmable
- Vacuum level
- Maximum Boiler temperature (safety feature)
- Equilibration Time
The controller allows easy editing of parameters while the distillation is in progress. Or run the distillation from a PC.
VAC-1000 Vacuum Regulation System
Materials that have very high boiling points or are subject to thermal degradation should be distilled at reduced pressures. The VAC-1000 is a complete, stand alone vacuum system that can provide regulated vacuum to any distillation system. It features a 5 decade pressure sensor, proportional control valve, vacuum manifold/trap, 2 stage mechanical pump, all mounted on a roll around cart for easy maneuverability in the laboratory. The VAC-1000 can be used with automated or manually operated columns.
Automatic and Manually Operated Fraction Collectors
Four and eight place fraction collectors are available to direct distilled material to the desired receiver. Automated versions allow distilled fractions to be collected unattended. Manually operated versions are also available. Various size receivers are available.
Cabinets and Mounting
B/R offers a variety of mounting options for your distillation column. The B/R 461 is an aluminum enclosure cabinet with Plexiglass door which protects the distillation column, flask, fraction collectors and receivers. The microprocessor is attached to the side of the cabinet. The B/R 464 is an open frame support structure for mounting the distillation system. The open frame is portable and allows easy access to all areas of the distillation column. The distillation column, microprocessor and fraction collectors are mounted in the framework.
The distillation equipment requires cooling for the column condenser. Cold tap water can be easily attached to the column's condenser. B/R offers heated and refrigerated recirculating baths for more precise control of the condenser temperature.
A spare parts kit is available which includes the parts necessary to keep your distillation system operating. B/R Instrument stocks all parts for fast deliveries.
