What does the Distillation Analyzer do?

The icon scientific Distillation Analyzer is used to measure individual boiling points or the boiling ranges of petroleum products from the light to middle distillate ranges.

The results obtained may be directly correlated to standard test methods such as ASTM D86, IP123 and ISO3405.


How does the analyzer work?

The unit works by carrying out a small-scale distillation on 20 ml of sample under controlled conditions. Our proven laser level measurement technology is used to accurately control the volume of sample in the distillation flask and to monitor the volume recovered; using the same piston setup for both measurements ensures any cross-system errors are negated. All results can be corrected for barometric pressure, as this is monitored throughout the distillation cycle. The temperature of the receiver block can also be controlled to allow distillations covering all ASTM sample groups.


Why choose the icon scientific Distillation Analyzer?

  • Rapid cycle time: a complete distillation is achieved in 10-15 minutes.
  • Full distillation curve: available as raw data points for every 1% volume.
  • Auto validation/calibration: the analyzer can be programmed to perform automatic validation or calibration on demand or on a timed basis.
  • Auto de-coke: the analyzer can be programmed to perform an automatic de-coke cycle to remove potential coke build-up on the flask walls.
  • Multiple configurations: for a wide variety of samples.
  • Precision laser level measurement: provides superior repeatability.
  • Atmospheric pressure compensation: analyzer results can be adjusted according to atmospheric pressure as defined in the standard test method.
  • Programmable outputs: gives the user greater control over the analyzer’s analog outputs, Modbus, and OPC data points. Multiple fixed and configurable data points available, including IBP, FBP, temperature at percent recovered/evaporated, and volume recovered/evaporated at temperature.
