New generation of ASTM D-1160  PETRODIST® 300 CC offering new features


PILODIST® is offering some new additional features of its fully automatic processor controlled ASTM D-1160 system for the determination of boiling ranges of crude oil products under vacuum. Following new features and functions have been implemented

  • in addition to the fixed values for evaluation requested by ASTM (5%, 10%, 20%, 30%, …) – PD300CC can add plus 5 flexible values in between
  • in addition to the volume point setting PD300CC offers additionally 5 temperature points to be set for volume determination
  • atmospheric distillation
  • water removal (dehydration) process prior to distillation
  • biodiesel distillation

    All other advantages of PETRODIST® 300 CC remain unchanged

  • parameter input, display as well as calculation of distillation and  final data and print out of the distillation curve via PC
  • easy operation due to userfriendly software, operated under WINDOWS
  • sophisticated safety system
  • individual distillation reports and curves can be re-called any time
  • precise distillation data due to automatic calibration of volume measuring system
  • anti-foaming by foam breaker and dynamic pressure reduction during evacuation
  • precise vacuum control
  • automatic washing run
  • calculation of charge according to receiver temperature and charge density
  • easy installation and service effort as the system is delivered ready for operation
  • automatic controlled termination of distillation process and start of cooling

With this redesign we feel that PETRODIST 300 CC  is well ahead of competitive products available on the market.
