K80200 VDA3000 Vacuum Distillation System

Copyright ® 2007 Particle Test Pty Ltd

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 ASTM D1160 and ISO 6616 test specifications

VDA3000 Vacuum Distillation System
The Koehler VDA3000 Vacuum Distillation System performs reduced pressure distillations of petroleum products in accordance with ASTM specifications. Complete borosilicate glassware system with support panel and base, heating mantle and clamps. Includes vacuum jacketed, strip silvered column with integral primary and secondary condensers and 35/25 spherical joints, PRT thermocouple adapter, PRT Temperature Probe, 500mL quartz distilling flask with thermowell, 200mL water jacketed receiver, vacuum adapter, two Dewar-type cold traps with 10mL graduated receiver and stopcock drain and 35/25 ball adapter for extra cold trap. Finished aluminum panel and base and stainless steel spring leashes. Glassware is assembled by adjustable No. 35 clamps to assure proper alignment to panel and base. Accessory control unit includes digital temperature indicator with selector switch for reading pot temperature or overhead temperature; vacuum gauge; variable controls for heating mantle, and line switch. Control unit is housed in a finished aluminum cabinet.
