 Simulated Distillation Analyzer (450-GC)

The Simulated Distillation (SimDist) Analyzer (Bruker Chemical Analysis) is a highly automated 450 GC, controlled by CompassCDS software integrated SimDist software. It is capable of reproducing the physical distillation of petroleum materials and products such as distillates, blends, fuels, residues and crude oil, ranging from carbon number C1 to C120 by determining boiling point distribution up to 750°C, delivers fast, accurate standard test method results. The CompassCDS SimDist software incorporates all of the ASTM, DIN, IP and ISO methods associated with Simulated Distillation analysis, which provides a quantitative percent mass yield as a function of boiling point of the hydrocarbons of the sample.​
