Manual Boiling Analysing System according to ASTM D1160.
The distillation is performed from the Initial Boiling Point (IBP) to the End Boiling Point (EBP) by the operator.
The criteria for a distillation end are:
* the EBP in AET-temperature is exceeded
* the distillate volume is exceeded
* the maximum limits of heating bath temperature or flask temperature are exceeded (automatic
* product cracking in the flask
* vacuum loss
The distillate volume is measured by the operator in a temperature controlled receiver.
A safety enclosure of the system to adequately shield the operator from the distillation apparatus in case of mishap as suggested by ASTM D1160-15 is quoted as an option as some customers will use the system within a fumehood.
The system includes the following components:
1 heating mantle for flask 500 mL, including the temperature sensor Pt 100.
1 insulation mantle for the upper half of the flask
1 manual lifting platform with integrated stirrer
2 distillation flasks, glass, 500 ml
2 magnetic stirrer bars for intensive mixing of flask content
1 flask temperature sensor Pt 100, stainless steel
1 ASTM-column and distillation head with silvered high vacuum jacket, with integrated product cooler and
condenser, foam breaker. The dimensions of the glassware correspond to the ASTM method.
1 head temperature sensor Pt 100 (according to ASTM-standard)
1 graduated distillate receivers, 200 ml, with double mantle, and with product chain
1 vacuum cold trap
1 analog manometer from -1 ... +0,6 bar for display of actual pressure status
1 vacuum sensor, independent of the type of gas, with inconel diaphragm, measuring range 100 Torr absolute
pressure (other ranges upon request)
1 vacuum control valve with throttle valve
1 vacuum pump, 2-stages, 8 m3/h
1 circulating thermostat, volume 3 l, operating range + 20°C to 100°C for operating the condenser and the
distillate receiver in the range 20°C to 90°C.
1 set of lines, sealings and accessories
1 rack for the mounting of all items, which is equipped with all mechanical components and
specific electric controls elements
1 Distillation Control Device DCD 1001 - basic controller for the following functions:
- heating power controller 0 - 100%
- temperature display for flask and head temperature
- vacuum controller with display
