B/R Instrument 9600 High Efficiency Distillation System

9600 Fractional DistillationThis high efficiency, fractional distillation system is an ideal tool for automatically purifying or analyzing a wide range of materials. Common applications include:

  • High Purity Solvent Recycling
  • GPC Solvent Recycling
  • General Lab Solvent Recycling
  • Petroleum Distillation
  • Biodiesel Purification
  • Crude Oil Distillation
  • Solvent Purification
  • Essential Oil Purification
  • Vacuum Distillation

This high efficiency distillation system can be equipped with two different types of distillation columns, spinning band columns and packed columns.


9600-50 Fractional DistillationThe 9600 spinning band distillation system is used for high purity applications and features:

  • All Glass and Teflon Components
  • 50 Theoretical Plate Distillation Column
  • 1 to 50 liter boiler capacities
  • Automatic and Manually Operated Distillation Systems

9600 Spinning Band 90 cm 21 mm 50 (Teflon Band) 1, 5, 12, 22 and 50 liter

The 9600 packed column distillation system for large boilers and high throughputs features:

  • 15-20 Theoretical Plate Distillation Column
    9600 30 Plate Fractional Distillation Apparatus
  • 1 to 50 liter boiler capacities
  • A variety of packing materials
  • Automatic and Manually Operated Distillation Systems

Traditional packed distillation columns are used for applications that require high distillation rates or that require boiler sizes larger than 50 liters. A variety of distillation column packing types are available including various random and structured packing. Packing materials can be made of metal, ceramic or glass.

Automatic Controller (Optional PC Interface)9600 Fractional Distillation System

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.


Optional Accessories:Fractional Distillation Graph

  • Automatic Fraction Collector
  • Automatic Vacuum Control
  • Heating/Cooling Bath
  • PC Control
  • Many Other Options


Vacuum Regulation SystemFractional Distillation Vacuum 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, control valve, cold trap, vacuum pump, all mounted on a roll around cart for easy maneuverability in the laboratory.


Automatic Fraction Collectors

Two, four and 8 place fraction collectors are available to direct distilled material to the desired receiver. Automated versions allow distilled fractions to be collected unattended. Various size receivers are available in glass, stainless steel and plastic.
