What is the VD-1600 Distiller?

What it does

Placed in combination with a Wientjens separator, the  VD-1600 is the ideal distiller for your degreasing module. Comprising a main still, sludge cooker, dirty and clean water tanks, coolers and large water separator,  the VD-1600 distills solvent from your degreasing process. Using Wientjens process know-how, the combination of separator and VD-1600 allows the maximum of any solid particles to be removed from the solvent before it enters the distiller. There is consequently almost no dirt gathering on the still floor, and that removes the need for a difficult cleaning maintenance task. It is difficult to overemphasize how much easier this makes the work of your personnel!

Based on vacuum technology, the VD-1600 maintains a constant solvent level in the main still which provides stable distilling capacity and gives you constant availablility of clean solvent. A huge advantage of the Wientjens design is that the unit will never boil over (under normal running conditions). Air imbalance in the system is also virtually an unknown. A large water separator ensures good cooling to give you optimal separation performance. A further benefit is that the VD-1600 has low consumption of cooling water and steam.
