Equipped with digital temperature and vacuum displays for improved measurement reading
- Conforms to ASTM D1160 and related specifications
Test the range of boiling points for petroleum and biofuel products with this vacuum distillation system. The sample is distilled at a reduced pressure and the initial and final boiling points are measured. A distillation curve can be generated relating volume percent distilled and the atmospheric equivalent boiling point temperature.
Main body of the system is constructed of an aluminum frame and cold-rolled steel walls with a clear protective door for added safety. Digital controller displays both overhead and flask temperature, along with vacuum reading. Built-in fan reduces cooling time of the distilling flask for shorter turnaround times between tests.
Optional Vacuum Pump Kit (59876-82) includes a vacuum pump, hose nozzle, hinged clamp, outlet filter, filter clamp, one liter of vacuum oil, connection tubing, and two hose clamps.
