Fast Results for Online Distillation Testing

Aug 06 2008 Read 1037 Times

MicroDist™ from PAC (USA) is the State-of-the-Art Accurate Solution for process optimization, product certification and control of blending processes for motor gasoline, fuel oil, naphtha, and diesel.

Accurate reporting of distillation points reduces product variability and waste.


Built –in Auto-diagnostics prevent faulty runs. There is no calibration required at setup making it easy to use right out of the box. In fact, there is no configuration changes required when changing fuel streams. All graphics can be viewed on displayed on the front screen with a simple selection of the boiling point data.


The MicroDist™ utilizes the technology of a fast, accurate established distillation method used in laboratory analysis in under 10 minutes measuring vapor, liquid temperatures and percentage distilled over the boiling point curve. The cell can be flushed automatically with the sample to be tested and a special thermo-destruction cleaning cycle can be programmed to be done at scheduled intervals. The results occur in a third of the time of other physical distillation methods.
Certified explosion protected construction

Meets ATEX – ExII 2 G Ex px IIC T4 to satisfy requirements. The big heavy explosion-proof housing has been replaced by an integral purge system with divided analytical and electronic sections.

The versatile design enables multi-streams up to 3. A built-in Nitrogen generator is available which allows for outside air to be used for utility gas requirements. The MicroDist™ can give boiling point data for diesel, gasoline and jet fuel. The testing and results are in full compliance with all true physical distillation methods.

The MicroDist™ offers low consumable usage with the new Permaflask technology. This rugged flask requires no cleaning saving you time and money. Direct injection calibration port saves time and effort between tests. Faster test results in half the time with no correlation needed. Reduced gas usage and local calibration only once per year.


Maximized throughput by minimizing test turnaround time and having no downtime between consecutive tests
Easy and accurate correlation better than current standards method
LIMS Communication available
