ASTM D1160 Vacuum Distillation for QC and Research laboratories
FULLY AUTOMATIC ASTM D1160
- No operator intervention from start to FBP 650 C AET - Up to 10 analysis per day - Easy operation in local mode and more versatile use in remote supervisor model - Ready for BIO FUELS and BIO OILS applications
Fully automatic distillation unit in accordance with ASTM D1160 method for the distillation of crude oil residue or lubricating cuts with automatic procedure from preheating to reduced pressure without any intervention of the operator up to the final boiling point FBP and automatic return to atmospheric pressure.
This unit can carry out all types of discontinuous distillation of chemical and organic components for boiling temperatures up to 350°C under atmospheric pressure or at vacuum down to 0.1 mmHg being an atmospheric equivalent temperature (AET) of 600-650°C. The operator can control the unit in local mode with all necessary functions ; programming , storage of results , synoptic color display , curves display , diagnostic mode , data transfer and more.
Of course the new version V6.0 benefits from all our improvements since 20 years allowing to run heavy and light oil, residues , difficult samples , atmospheric runs, custom design program and with parameters accessible at any moment . All the above without compromising on the safety issue of such distillation method.
The control unit, easily accessible inside cabinet consists of : - A set of all electrotechnical elements necessary to activate the process elements such as pump, heaters , electrovalves , motors and so on . - A built in industrial Pentium PC with all necessary process interfaces and software to control the distillation unit . A very user friendly software allowing the operator to control and visualize the status of the distillation in local mode.
All electro technical components used are of industrial grade and the access for maintenance is very easy . Each major elements of the distillation unit are rotected by fuses or power breakers . It also includes a main differential breaker, all power supplies and transformers , plus cooling fans.
- Fully Automatic Apparatus - Real time curves and synoptic display on Color LCD Display - Automatic sample degassing and cleaning - Run in °C or °F , in mmHg or mBar - Extensive library of distillation programs - Data storage of hundreds of distillation runs in local mode and unlimited with GECDIST Net remote control software - Built in Ethernet interface for remote control
GECDIST Net D1160 supervisor SOFTWARE
GECDIST Net supervisor software allows to monitor several distillations from GECIL Process MINIDIST PLUS product line such as MVD D2892 , type E D2892 , type A D5236, D1160 Stand alone MINIDIST 1160 or Multiprocess units type C or D . Up to 16 distillation units can be link to one PC supervisor GECDIST Net . Our technical staff will configure the software at installation of a distillation unit.
