Inauguration of PILODIST´s new production hall expansion project

PILODIST proudly announces the inauguration of an additional adjacent new production hall for the assembly and testing of turn-key systems for distillation, extraction and thin-film evaporation.

Following our tremendeous growth over years it became neccessary to grow this area as more and more systems had to be assembled and tested simultaneously. This new assembly and production area of approx. 450 qm has been equipped with most modern supplies and provides more than 14 positions for the assembly of different systems.

Receipt of German Patent for Automatic Phase separation

We are happy and proud to announce that the following patent now has been officially been assigned by “Deutsches Patentamt” which is the German patent authorities.

Automatic phase separation

This is a special feature being used in the water removal (dehydration) option of our fully automatic crude oil distillation systems PETRODIST 100 CC. The water removal accessories separates the water from wet crude oils as ASTM D2892 requires dehydration before distillation for crude oils having more than 0,4% of water content.

The automatic phase separator automatically discharges precisely the separated water into a can without overlapping while light components that have been evaporated during the process are automatically being recharged to the distillation flask without operator intervention.
