Fully automatic distillation unit, in accordance with ASTM D1160 method, distills crude oil residue or lubricating cuts with automatic procedure from preheating  to reduced pressure, up to the final boiling point (FBP) and return to atmospheric pressure, without any intervention of the operator.
This unit facilitates all types of discontinuous distillation of chemical and organic components for boiling temperatures up to 350°C under atmospheric pressure. As well as, vacuum down to 0.1 mmHg, the atmospheric equivalent temperature (AET) of 600-650°C.
The operator can control the unit in local-mode, with all necessary functions: programming, result storage, synoptic color display, curves display, diagnostic mode, data transfer and more.
The new version, V7.0, benefits from 40 years of technical experience  allowing runs for heavy and light oil, residues and difficult samples, as well as, atmospheric runs with a custom design program to quickly access parameters at any moment. All features are included without compromising safety. 
The easily accessible control unit consists of: 
A set of  all electrotechnical elements necessary to activate the process elements gathering the pump, heaters, electrovalves, motors, etc.   
A built-in Linux Industrial Pentium processor, with all necessary interfaces and software to control the distillation unit. User friendly software allows the operator to visualize and control the status of the distillation in local-mode. 
All electrotechnical components are industrial grade, allowing quick access for maintenance. Major elements of the distillation unit are protected by fuses or power breakers. The unit includes a main differential breaker, all power supplies, transformers, and cooling fans.
