Automatic Distillation Unit 5 ADU5

Automatic Distillation Unit – ADU 5

ADU 5 is a fully automated, stand-alone distillation unit which is operated by touch- screen interface. This makes it the ideal solution for performing high-precision atmospheric distillation tests for petroleum products. The unit is prepared for automatic dry point detection.

Distillation tests are used to characterize the volatility of petrochemical products. These volatility characteristics are a critical measure- ment of the overall performance and safety of hydrocarbon-based fuels.

Petroleum distillation according to ASTM D86 is one of the most common methods used to determine the boiling range characteristics of petroleum products. Since this method is so well established, it still provides the best basis for assessing the behavior of products and processes.

Testing and results are in full compliance with ASTM D86 (Group 0, 1, 2, 3, 4), D850, D1078, ISO 3405, IP 123, IP 195.
