K45601 Automatic Distillation System


 

Test Method
The sample is evaporated and condensed under controlled conditions, and observations are made of the temperatures at which various percentages are recovered and/or the percentages recovered at specified temperatures.

Features and Benefits

• Conforms to ASTM D86, D285, and related international specifications

• Pt-100 RTD probe with completely automatic temperature calibration system (°C or °F)

• Windows® 95/98 software package for easy PC control of distillation unit

• Versatile unit performs distillation analysis on samples with final boiling points (FBP) up to 420 °C and according to distillation group (DG) methods 0 to 4

• Microprocessor-based diagnostic system continuously ensures proper operation and user safety

• Low mass, low inertia 24V AC heater element provides precise temperature control

• Infrared system accurately measures distillate volume to 0.01mL during operation

• Automatic determination of initial boiling point (IBP), FBP, dry point, and barometric compensation

• Up to 32 units can be interfaced to a single PC for easy operational control and test analysis


 

K45601 Automatic Distillation System
Automatic apparatus designed to perform optimal distillation analyses of gasolines, fuels, oils, solvents, aromatics, napthas, kerosenes, hydrocarbons, and other volatile products to ensure conformity to rigid quality control standards. Units are designed to automatically perform tests, process results, and produce standard reports according to ASTM, ISO, and related specifications. Easy-to-use PC communication software expands user capabilities for data manipulation and unit control. Distillation methods and parameters can be easily created or modified. Models with integrated PC and color LCD display or color touch screen LCD display are available. High-performance, low-inertia 24V AC heater provides precise temperature control for maintaining uniform distillation rates. Powerful CFC-free cooling system allows effortless changes between distillation groups. Forced-air system begins cooling unit at the completion of a distillation run to reduce operator down time. A series of Pt-100 RTD probes monitor distillation flask, distillate vapor, condenser, and receiver compartment and mimic the response of mercury-in-glass thermometers with an accuracy of ±0.01°C. Microprocessor-based control system continuously monitors test results, unit operation, safety features, and alerts user to maintenance needs or safety problems. Test results displayed in real-time and can include distillation curve and temperature with or without barometric compensation and/or evaporation correction, distillation rate, heating power curve, master curve comparison, and zoom function for high resolution of heating and temperature curves. Complete data storage of results and limited only by the hard drive capacity of external PC. Point by point comparisons of distillation results are easily performed for quality control and referencing. Automatic dry point determination, and optional dry point detector improves accuracy and repeatability. Modular design for simple maintenance operations. The in-built fire extinguishing system with optical detection for fast response ensures user and laboratory safety.
