Crude Oil Fractional Distillation System

Kuwait University

This equipment is essential to fractionate the petroleum crude oils into simple fractions for further study. This fractioning is based on the difference of boiling points of chemicals in crude oil. In order to operate under safe temperatures and to enhance evaporation, working under vacuum conditions is required; especially for heavy chemicals in crude oil. Therefore, this system is equipped with vacuum distillation sub-system. This system is operated fully automatic with computer control. This system confirm with ASTM D2892 or D5236 or both tests in the same unit.
