The Setastill Distillation unit is a bench-top instrument used to carry out atmospheric distillation of petroleum products and liquid
fuels to determine boiling range characteristics.
The unit can distil samples from ambient temperature up to 400°C and consists of an electrically heated distillation enclosure with a
cooling fan and an integral condenser.
The steel distillation enclosure houses the distillation flask which is supported by a drop-in ceramic support board (accessory) mounted
to a platform that is adjustable for height.
- Three way heat / fan switch
- Adjustable height platform
- Toughened glass window
- Ceramic glass flask support boards
- High efficiency quartz tube heaters with gold reflectors
- Observation window
- Optional back lighting unit for receiver
- Optional blower fan for cool-down after tests
Quartz enclosed heating elements are also attached to the platform, and are powered by a solid-state energy regulator and calibrated
control. A cooling fan is installed in the rear of the distillation unit to reduce cooling time between distillations. A spillage
collection tray with outlet is mounted beneath the heaters.
The condenser unit is attached to the distillation unit, and may be used with either a static fill of coolant or a laboratory cooling supply. Housed within the condenser unit is a thermally-insulated, stainless steel coolant tank, fitted with a permanently installed condenser tube. A drain tap and an overflow outlet are mounted on the rear of the unit.
