Crude Oil Distillation

Crude Oil Distillation

Processor controlled combined crude oil distillation system for fully automatic operation according to ASTM D-2892 (TBP) and ASTM D-5236 (Potstill). PETRODIST 400 CC is a combination of the following systems:

PETRODIST 100 CC (ASTM D-2892)
PETRODIST 200 CC (ASTM D-5236)

Both systems can operate at the same time (simultaneously) in fully automatic, uninterrupted and unattended mode. The data evaluation software provides also a combined TBP-curve for both systems.

Compact design with control system and safety items for unattended operation. No operator intervention and no intermediate stops are required.
All necessary accessories will be supplied together with the system. The installation requires water, nitrogen, compressed air and electricity.

The system enables to perform TBP- and Potstill – distillations of various crude samples according to ASTM-standards and is designed for laboratory use.

The system is equipped with a central computer control, vaccum supply and thermostate system, data storage and evaluation station as well as a fraction collector, designed to serve for both distillation systems simultaneously and provides direct automatic distillation flow rate control.

The fraction/receiver changes are automatically performed according to preselected cut temperatures or in case of receiver overfilling. Both systems are equipped with individual fraction collectors to allow simultaneous operation of both systems. The final data and the TBP-curve in wt% and vol% are printed out after reweighing the residue.

The unit requires water, nitrogen, compressed air and electricity. Dry ice or liquid nitrogen is required for cold traps.
