PILODIST is proud to announce that several most modern and advanced PETRODIST crude oil distillation systems according to various ASTM standards have been delivered to one of the most important and worldwide known petroleum companies, Petroleos de Venezuela S.A. (PDVSA).

The systems will operate in a huge and most modern laboratory complex in Amuay, one of the worlds biggest refinery and petroleum processing complex not only in South America but in the world.
 
PILODIST has been chosen by PDVSA after a very thorough investigation and market research of available systems from various suppliers. This project has been by far the biggest single project in South America of its kind and PDVSA belongs with this equipment to one of the worlds largest and most advanced crude oil evaluation labs.
 
The distillation systems of the new generation of PETRODIST series are representing the latest state of technology and include
 

  • PETRODIST 100 CC, fully complying to ASTM D-2892
  • PETRODIST 200 CC, fully complying to ASTM D-5236
  • PETRODIST 400 CC, fully complying to ASTM D-2892 and D-5236
  • PETRODIST 300 CC-F, fully complying to ASTM D-1160 with extended features
  •  

All of these systems are to be operated in fully automatic mode and the different distillation stages under different pressure steps are performed fully automatically by an advanced process control with a fully automatic evaluation and report on the completed analysis. The delivered technology includes additional high tech features like dehydration capability, detection of gases during distillation process and well as additional safety features to ensure trouble-free fully automatic operation even in overnight condition. The weight as well as the volume of each fraction are being automatically measured and the density is calculated accordingly.These most advanced systems will be used for research, analysis and quality control of various crude oils being produced by PDVSA.
 
This project represents one of the very biggest single projects which has ever been performed by PILODIST and is a major reference and step for PILODIST to become a preferred supplier of Petroleos de Venezuela S.A. for laboratory distillation systems.
