The Single Quartz Distillation (OPTI-M-4) is the ideal choice for budget conscious laboratories that can't afford to compromise on quality. It combines economy and high performance with a host of other features which comparable stills cannot match. Built in the acid addition funnel and drain stopcock allow easy decaling without dismantling the glassware. The unique condenser design ensures that the droplets of distilled water remain in contact with the cooling coil for the longest possible time producing cold distilled water and pre-heating the boiler feed to increase efficiency. Screw threads are incorporated on all water connections so hoses can be fitted and removed easily and safely without risk of breakage. Safety features include safety thermostats to prevent over heating in the event of failure of the water supply The stand is pre-drilled to facilitate wall mounting.
The unique condenser design ensures that the droplets of distilled water remains in contact with cooling coils for the longest possible time producing cold distilled water and preheated boiler input which increases efficiency of the unit. A flow sensing device will detect any reduction in the flow of cooling water below the required level and will turn off the still before it can overheat. As a fail-safe device there is an over temperature sensor mounted in the boiling chamber. The AQUA-ON is very easy and safe to assemble and maintain. Both the acrylic safety screen and the cabinet lids are connections so hoses can be fitted and removed easily and safely without risk of breakage.
