AGRONOVA design and build laboratory distillation equipment on clients' request. Our laboratory systems benefit from using the same PLC devices, programming and sensor technology as used in our commercial units. The client can then learn and re-use the same PLC programming at both scales, including the options to use both vacuum and steam distillation technology as well as the mixer device.
It is preferable, both from a cost and time persepctive, to be able to study single factors of interest at the laboratory scale, as well as to make first test runs with e.g. novel plant candidates, instead of having to use a unit at commercial scale.
We only use high-quality laboratory glassware and robust & stainless steel components to meet with professional requirements.
Our laboratory distillation systems can be used for both vacuum and steam distillation sampling.
