A new vision for distillation testing of petroleum products

Dec 15 2021

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

Like an experienced operator of a manual distillation, the VD 10’s high-resolution digital camera visually monitors all phases of sample boiling. A powerful, real-time image analysis anticipates and predicts the optimal heater settings to respect standard method conditions for IBP, 5% timings and distillation rate control. Without any need for a programming or optimisation, the instrument provides a perfect distillation run from the first attempt, even for unknown or difficult samples like biofuels. The VD10’s user-friendly interface includes all necessary features for operation, result reporting and traceability, quality assurance, diagnostics and communication.

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