Front View Distillation Apparatus
  • Conforms to ASTM D86, E133 and related ASTM and international standards
  • Choice of three different models
Front View Distillation Apparatus, Groups 0, 1, 2 and 3
Meets all ASTM and related specifications for distillation of motor and aviation gasolines, aviation turbine fuels, naphthas, kerosenes, distillate fuels, natural gasoline, liquid hydrocarbon mixtures and other petroleum products. Consists of fully insulated stainless steel condenser and heater units. Heater unit includes flask support platform, viewing window, 1000W heater with stepless variable control, and rack and pinion heater elevation mechanism with push-turn control knob. Please inquire about higher wattage heaters. White receiving flask background facilitates viewing of fractions during test. Available with right-hand or left-hand heater unit for convenient pairing. Includes graduate support block and flask support boards.
Group 4 Front View Distillation Apparatus
Front View Distillation apparatus designed for testing of Grade No. 2 fuel oil, Grade No. 2-D diesel fuel oil, gas oils and other distillates requiring condenser bath temperatures of up to 140°F (60°C). Also suitable for gasolines, aviation turbine fuels, naphthas, kerosenes and other liquid petroleum products. Similar in features and construction to the standard Front View Distillation Apparatus, but equipped with a 300W copper immersion condenser heater with stepless electronic control. Available with right or left-hand heater unit. Note: The Group 4 Apparatus can also run distillations for petroleum products categorized as Groups 0, 1, 2 and 3.
