New, Fast Boiling Point Process Analyser launches in California

Apr 20 2017 Comments 0

Bartec Benke displayed their new rapiDist-4 Analyser at the ISA Analysis Division’s 62nd Annual Meeting in Pasadena in April. This analyser’s launch was expected to be very well received both in Pasadena and across the globe.

The rapiDist-4 offers rapid, reliable and accurate boiling point measurements to allow for fast process control of atmospheric measurements, distillation columns and blending processes for all types of middle distillates and feedstock for petrochemical processing (naphtha), jet fuels, fuel oils, diesel fuels and similar petroleum products and liquid hydrocarbons.

The rapiDist-4 is capable of taking measurements from IBP to FBP, programming the analyser is relatively simple and the results will correlate with ASTM D86. rapiDist-4 offers an ASTM D86 conform validation, which is optional. The cycle time is only 10 to 15 minutes (for diesel 10 minutes). The core components of this unit, such as the dosing unit, vapouriser, condenser and receiver, also meet the design specifications set out by ASTM D86.

The analyser incorporates integrated diagnostic and maintenance features, which include an automatic decoking devise and remote access. rapiDist-4 also features a non-contact and very robust optical level measurement for the dosing and receiver unit.

The highly robust rapiDist-4 is certified to operate in hazardous areas under ATEX, IECEx, CSA C/US, TRCU, among others on request.
