QUICKDIST 500 CC

PILODIST introduces a new QUICKDIST 500 CC as an ultra-fast distillation system or the fully automatic fractionation of stabilized hydrocarbon products.

k-QUCIKDIST 500 CC

Specially developed for the separation of hydrocracked or catalyst product samples into their different cuts (for example: Naphtha, Kerosene, Diesel). The unmatched timeframe of less than three hours is achieved in a fully automatic process through different pressure stages similar to ASTM-D2892.

The system is equipped with a distillation column packed with high efficient SULZER EX packing to ensure a proper efficiency also under high throughput conditions. The fully automatic discharge system is optimized with minimum hold-up for a closed mass-balance also with small charges.

The whole process is performed fully automatically (in PILODIST CC-version) from start to the final cut and can operate through 4 pressure stages down to 1 mmHg (Torr) absolute pressure without any user intervention. A quench coil and a special thermostat system reduces the intermediate cooling phases and in combination with a fast heat-up process the runtimes can be reduced to an unique minimum.

Key facts:
– Operation temperature (flask): max. 350°C
– Final Cut point (AET): max. 420°C
– Operation pressure: ATM – 1 Torr abs.
– Column efficiency: up to 30 theoretical plates
– Flask Sizes: 500ml, 1 L, 2 L
– Charge: up to 60% of flask volume
– Receiver size: 20x 100ml

PETRODIST 350 CC
fully automatic crude oil distillation

Fully automatic system with a new type of fraction collector as a replacement of PETRODIST 300 CC-F. The processor controlled system is designed according to ASTM D-1160 but with automatic fraction collector for the determination of boiling ranges of crude oil products under vacuum. The system can be operated in strict accordance to the ASTM procedure with 1 single receiver or alternatively by using a new type of automatic fraction collector with 5 receivers.

Key features:

  • operate in strict accordance with ASTM D1160 by using 1 single receiver
  • or using a new type of automatic fraction collector with 5 receivers, 200 mL each  NEW!
  • fraction collector can be operated by volume or by preselected cut temperatures  NEW!
  • software kit to perform distillation similar ASTM D5236 with dynamic vacuum reduction procedure down to 0,1 Torr
  • flask sizes available 500, 1000, 2000 mL
  • tempered automatic discharge pump for easy drain of even viscous product into open fraction collector  NEW!
  • receivers can be closed with cap GL 45
  • new PILODIST brand touch screen panel control  NEW!
  • fully automatic reporting and storage of results
  • atmospheric distillation
  • water removal (dehydration) process prior to distillation
  • biodiesel distillation
  • LIMS connectivity

The distillation volume is measured automatically in receivers, temperature controlled by an IR-heater. The yield is calculated in percentage to the charge quantity. Distillation report, final data and distillation curve are printed out.

PILODIST 250 CA2

Continuously working distillation system

This system, having been designed by PILODIST engineers, is for universal operation under atmospheric or optionally under vacuum conditions.

The customized system consists of 3 distillation columns in the size of DN 50 with silvered high-vacuum mantle, packed with high efficient wire-mesh to ensure a high separation efficiency. The system can alternatively also be equipped with different column packing material depending on application.

As a safety feature the circulation evaporator is equipped with a dry-up rotection. The individual and fully-automatic PILODIST – control system provides an automatic control of the temperature of the column heating mantles depending on the head temperature or the column-middle-temperature respectively to ensure a fully-adiabatically operation.

The high efficient condenser, made of glass, detects optionally the temperature of the cooling water at the point of entering and leaving the condenser. A continuous measurement and control of the differential pressure between head and bottom of the system can be realized for the detection and control of the column load.

The very user friendly PILODIST process control system (IP65) can be remotely controlled and includes a visualized user interface.

PILODIST 250 BB

Continuously working distillation system

This system, made of high quality borosilicate glassware 3.3, is for universal operation under atmospheric or vacuum conditions.

The customized system consists of 2 distillation columns in the size of DN 50 with silvered high-vacuum mantle, packed with high efficient SULZER-packing to ensure a high separation efficiency. The system can alternatively also be equipped with different column packing material depending on application.

PILODIST 250 BB is equipped with a fully continuous balance system for all receiver vessels (feed, distillate, bottom product) to allow a fully-automatic mass balance during the distillation process. The transfer of the product into and out of the distillation process is being realized via a hermetically sealed pump so that product take-off and product charge is continuously possible even under vacuum condition. This allows a fully-continuous operation without any limitation due to the volume of the receivers. The distillate as well as the bottom product can be traced back automatically into the feed vessel to raise and optimize the operation of the distillation and to achieve the desired distillate product without losing feed product or any contamination of the final product.

As a safety feature the circulation evaporator is equipped with a dry-up rotection. The individual and fully-automatic PILODIST – control system provides an automatic control of the temperature of the column heating mantles depending on the head temperature or the column-middle-temperature respectively to ensure a fully-adiabatically operation.
