A new vision for atmospheric distillation testing

Oct 24 2023

AD Systems recently launched the VD10 analyser for automated distillation at atmospheric pressure according to ASTM D86 and similar test methods. The dedicated innovative imaging system (patent pending) brings unmatched automation and precision to this routine analysis of petroleum products.

The VD10’s high-resolution digital camera visually monitors all phases of sample boiling anticipating and predicting the optimal heater settings to respect standard method conditions for IBP, 5% timings and distillation rate control.

Just put 100 mL sample in the flask, place it on the instrument and press START. Without any need for pre-programming or optimisation, the instrument performs a method-compliant distillation run from the first attempt, even for unknown or difficult samples like biofuels. The user-friendly interface includes all necessary features for operation, result reporting, quality assurance and traceability, diagnostics, and LIMS communication.

High-quality components, precise sensors, and robust construction assure reliability for heavy-duty and safe use with minimum maintenance. The VD10 is arguably the most advanced and innovative instrument for atmospheric distillation available on today’s market.
