Distillation unit SDU 400

Fully automatic steam distillation unit SDU 400

Автоматический паровой дистиллятор SDU400 с удалением остатков

Fully programmable apparatus with the ability to dispense all the necessary reagents: alkali, water, boric acid, without operator intervention, and removal of residues at the end of the analysis. It eliminates the human factor during the steam distillation.

Distillation apparatus is equipped with a precision pump with calibration function that allows adding the amount of alkali programmed by the operator and regulating the flow of water depending on the operation of the distillation system.

The geography of deliveries has influenced on the choice of the user’s language. Menu in English and Russian languages are available.

SDU housing is made of chemically resistant epoxy powder coated stainless steel
AISI 304.

It is impossible not to draw attention to such an important function as audio and visual alerts, which are indicators of safety. The distillation unit begins to work within complying with all the necessary steps to get started the operation. Regardless of whether you are near the unit or at the other end of laboratory, the beep will inform you of the error or the end of the distillation process. An error code or message of the completion of work will appear on the display.


The main feature of the steam distillation apparatus is that it can operate in different modes: manual mode or automatic. Depending on the model of the distillation unit, automatic functions are more advanced. Therefore, in a steam distillation unit SDU 400 automatically added alkali, water and boric acid, and removed the residues from the tube at the end of the analysis. This allows the operator to be more mobile, while specifying the desired program on the steam distiller, he can do other tasks.

Moreover, the device will complete the analysis, clean the tube from the remnants notifying by the beep. You can also turn the work of the distillation apparatus in manual mode, if, for example, you need to change the amount of one reagent. Nevertheless, this does not mean that you should manually add this reagent; it’s implied the exhibiting of the required amount of reagent in manual mode and the distillation unit should add the specified quantity. This gives a uniqueness and versatility to the instrument.

The tubes placing is very convenient, as it allows easily and seamlessly extracting it. The tube is placed and held in the hole, which allows it to be securely fixed.
