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 dry cleaning module. Comprising a main still, sludge cooker, dirty and solvent tanks, coolers and large water separator,  the VD-1600 distills solvent from your dry cleaning process. Using Wientjens process know-how, the combination of separator and VD-1600 allows the maximum of fibres, sand and other 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.

Performance boost

You will reap the benefits of our VD-1600 vacuum technology immediately – stable distilling capacity, almost no still cleaning needed, optimal separation performance. This means stable clean solvent availability and a huge reduction in operating and maintenance needs. When cleaning is needed, it is made trouble free thanks to easy machine access. Low operating and maintenance costs across the board. Your investment is quickly recouped.
