H.S. Martin Distillation System

Condenser: Condensers with various heat exchange areas (HEA) are available. They are also stackable. This allows you to adjust the cooling capacity of the system to meet your specific requirements.

Added for Reflux Divider: Reflux dividers are available in different types. Manual reflux dividers allow for easy adjustment, and automatic reflux dividers permit precise reflux ratio control.

Column : Various column heights are available to enable you to set specified theoretical plate specifications. Various packing material is available depending on your chemical compatibility requirements. Different styles of packing are also available to meet your specific needs, i.e., ceramic saddle, perforated metal, Raschig rings and woven mesh to name a few.

Framework : Stainless steel frame with epoxy-coated components. Provides years of rugged, dependable service. Frames are adjustable to accommodate future modifications to the system, i.e., components are added or replaced.

Receiver Flask : Larger receiving flasks allow for longer run times and larger cuts to be taken without disrupting the process. Equipping multiple receivers allows for continuous operation as well as sampling.

Heating Mantle : Splash guards and other heating mantle accessories and options may be available. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
