MINIDIS ADXpert Automatic Mini-Distillation

Portable and Automatic Mini-Distillation Analyzer

This true atmospheric distillation analyzer is extremely compact, portable and light weight and operates as a fully stand-alone unit. Designed for the quick and accurate quality control in laboratories and in the field, a distillation run on light products takes just15 minutes and requires as little as 6 mL of sample. Because of its small size, the portable mini-distillation apparatus is the ultimate solution for places where limited or no lab-space is available.



Revolutionizing ASTM D86 Testing


The automatic distillation analyzer MINIDIS ADXpert is revolutionizing ASTM D86 testing. It is a true atmospheric distillation analyzer in an extremely small format. The automation significantly improves the repeatability and the reproducibility of the highly precise results. The MINIDIS offers a detailed ASTM D86 compliant report and prints and/or transmits the results via a serial PC link.

Outstanding: Highest Safety


Broken glassware is one of the major reasons for fire hazards experienced when distilling with glass flasks. Because of the rugged metal housing, the sealed metal distillation cycle and the small sample volume, the MINIDIS ADXpert does not need a fire protection system. Cheap and durable metal sample cups instead of expensive glass flasks significantly reduce consumable costs and make the MINIDIS ADXpert a perfect solution for distillation testing within challenging environments.
Full Automation for Highest Productivity


The MINIDIS ADXpert provides a complete distillation run and test report in 15 minutes (for gasoline) using only 6 mL of sample. The automatic operation involves simply placing the filling tube into the sample and pressing “RUN”. No special programming of test conditions or prior distillation test knowledge is required. With the automatic sample introduction, the pre-programmed rinsing cycle and the use of disposable sample cups, any test preparation or manual cleaning of glass parts is avoided.


Applicable for gasoline, jet fuel and diesel products (groups 0-4), biofuels, solvents, aromatics, organic liquids, chemicals and contaminated or blended samples. Fast measurements, automatic cleaning and close to no waste allow for versatile applications in laboratories, at-line or in Mobile Labs.
