Quick at-line mini-distillation delivers true boiling point or D86 results

The MINIDIS ADXpert is a compact, versatile true atmospheric distillation unit, used for the quick and accurate quality control of Gasoline, Jet Fuels, Diesel, Biofuels, Blends, Chemicals and Solvents in laboratories and in process. A distillation run on light products takes just 15 minutes and requires as little as 6 mL of sample. Because of its small size, the portable mini-distillation apparatus is the ultimate solution for at-line measurements and for pipeline terminals.
 
Using the advanced ASTM D7344 method, the analyzer is capable to deliver both, the true boiling point or ASTM D86 results of petrochemicals and chemicals. Because of its unique characteristics the MINIDIS ADXpert is used as distillation test method in US-pipeline product specifications.
 
MINIDIS ADXpert uses full automation from sample introduction to heating regulation, vapor temperature registration, volume measurement in the receiver compartment and calculation of the distillation curve from the raw data obtained during the test. This way it achieves the highest levels of accuracy, repeatability and reproducibility.
