This high efficiency, fractional distillation system is an ideal tool for automatically distilling a wide variety of petroleum samples. Common applications include:
- Bio-diesel Distillation
- Condensate Distillation
- Middle Distillate Distillation
- Crude Oil Distillation
- High Boiling Materials
- Many More
This high efficiency distillation system can be equipped with two different types of distillation columns, spinning band columns and packed columns.

|Application||High throughput||High maximum AET Vapor Temperature|
|Boiler Range||1-2000 liters||1-50 liters|
|Column Element||Packing –Random, structured or real plates.||Spinning Band|
|Maximum AET vapor temperature||400 °C||500+ °C|
|Column Diameter||25 mm – 150 mm||21 mm|
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.
Or run the distillation from a PC.
- Automatic Fraction Collector
- Automatic Vacuum Control
- Heating/Cooling Bath
- PC Control
- Many Other Options
Vacuum Regulation System
Petroleum products that have high boiling points 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. Allows distilled fractions to be collected unattended. Various size receivers are available.
