Mini Fractional Petroleum Distillation, Fractional Distillation

Mini Petroleum Distillation Systems


mini fractional petroleum distillation by B/R Instrument

The 36-100 fractional mini distillation system can fractionate small petroleum samples into well separated fractions.

  • 50-1000 ml Samples Sizes
  • 80 Theoretical Plates (great separating power)
  • Low Column Hold-Up (less than 0.5 ml)
  • Low Column Back Pressure


  • Crude Oil
  • Distillates
  • Oils
  • Residues
  • Chemicals
  • Many More Materials
Column Operation Length Diameter Plates Flask Sizes
36-100 Spinning Band Automatic and Manually Operated Models 90 cm 8 mm 80 (Metal Spinning Band) 100, 250, 500 and 1000ml

Automation and Accessories:

Many optional accessories are available for the mini petroleum distillation system including:

  • Automatic Fraction Collector, 8 place
  • Automatic Vacuum Control
  • PC Control
  • Heating/Cooling Bath
  • Many Others

Automatic Controller (Optional PC Interface)

The automatic controller minimizes the amount of operator time required for each distillation. Select your stored distillation program and let the controller perform the distillation. Collect up to 8 fractions. Each fraction has programmable:

  • Open Temperature
  • Close Temperature
  • Heat Rate
  • Reflux Ratio
  • Programmable shut down at end of distillation

Each distillation program has a programmable

  • Vacuum level
  • Maximum Boiler temperature (safety feature)
  • Equilibration Time

The controller allows easy editing of parameters while the distillation is in progress. Or run the distillation from a PC.

PC Control also available.
