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.
