Compact Automatic Distillation Unit: ADU 5 BrochureSource: Anton Paar USA
Distillation tests are used to characterize the volatility of petrochemical products. These volatility characteristics are a critical measurement of the overall performance and safety of hydrocarbon-based fuels.
Petroleum distillation according to ASTM D86 is one of the most common methods used to determine the boiling range characteristics of petroleum products. Since this method is so well established, it still provides the best basis for assessing the behavior of products and processes.
