K87000 VDA5000 Semi-Auto Vacuum Distillation System


 

Test Method
The sample is distilled at a controlled, reduced pressure under conditions which provide approximately one theoretical plate fractionation. A distillation curve relating volume distilled and boiling point atmospheric equivalent temperature is prepared.

Features and Benefits

• Conforms to the specifications of ASTM D1160 and ISO 6616

• Automatically regulates pressure

• Electronic temperature adjustment

• Records and plots test data

• Automatic nitrogen degassing at test conclusion

 


 

VDA5000 Semi-Auto Vacuum Distillation System
The Koehler VDA5000 Semi-Automatic Distillation System simplifies operation of the vacuum distillation test by controlling test functions and plotting test data. Distillation pressure is maintained automatically by means of a built-in vacuum pump and automatic pressure regulator. Temperature is also maintained at the desired setting throughout the test. A recorder plots key test data, including: sample identification, time, pressure and vapor temperature at IBP, fractions and end point. Temperature readings are presented in observed and Atmospheric Equivalent Temperatures (AET) format. Nitrogen degassing is initiated automatically at the end of the cleaning run, or by pressing the emergency button on the control console at any time during the test. (Requires an external source of nitrogen.)

Included Accessories
