Key Feature On STARDIST
The sample temperature and exact percentage
are measured by the Volume Scan before the start of each
test. Receiving chamber temperature is then automatically
set to sample temperature to eliminate incorrect volume
measurement due to thermal expansion. Subsequently, the
actual measured volume is corrected to 100% volume.
The simple and elegant flask holder design ensures easy
and correct positioning of the distillation flask for both 125
ml and 200 ml flasks. Moreover it ensures that the probe‘s
height in relation to the flask’s side arm is always correct
Optical Dry Sense
This unique built-in feature for Dry Point Detection
eliminates the need for an external dry point sensor. It
ensures higher accuracy and easier handling while keeping
operating costs low. Especially suitable for tests in which
dry point detection is required (tests according to ASTM
D850 & D1078, but also D86 and other related methods).
Automatic Heater Lift
The new automatic heater lift applies the correct upward
pressure to the flask and shortens the after-test
cooling period by automatically lowering the heater when
the test is finished
Voc Cold Trap
Designed to minimize evaporation loss of volatile organic compounds, this
unique built-in feature ensures safer surroundings while improving the
accuracy and repeatability of distillation results.
HD Volume Scan
The second generation Volume Scan is equipped with a HD CCD camera that
provides two times the precision and accuracy of its predecessor in the former
PAMv2 distillation unit. Includes Peltier controlled temperature regulation.
Advanced Heat Control
Early-on detection of the distillation behavior and smart internal algorithms
enable real-time accurate heater control. This results in increased IBP/FBP
repeatability, “right-in-time” IBP detection and a distillation rate kept
smoothly between 4 - 5 ml per min., even with complicated blends such as 20%
ethanol-in-gasoline. Automatic final heat is automatically optimized for any
type of sample, even for “heavy tail” samples.
Simple screens and logical navigation structure give users quick access to basic
functions such as “choose program”, “start test”, “monitor distillation” and
Custom distillation points, such as volume at 250ºC, can be added to the test
results even after the test is finished.
Password protected access allows experienced users to customize program settings
and manage menus for connection to LIMS and Windows PC, printing, calibration
and more. Storage on built-in iPad: 20.000 results, 1.000 programs and 100
Liquid-free condenser cooling equipped with peltier elements and heat-pipe
assisted heat sinks ensures powerful and maintenance friendly operation.
Fast Heater Cooling
2 adjustable and powerful fans ensure quick heater and flask cooling after the
test is finished.
Sensitive UV fire detection sensor and connection to N / CO2 for built-in fire
Built-in Drop Deflector
Increases ease of use and reduces operator mistakes from misplacing or
forgetting to insert drop deflector.
