The choice of whether to use fractional distillation or simple distillation depends on the two liquids being separated. Typically, using simple distillation is preferrable because the apparatus is, well, simpler, and a simple distillation typically goes faster than a fractional distillation (and requires less energy). On the other hand, fractional distillation gives better separation between the liquids. The choice of whether to use simple or fractional distillation, then, depends usually on the difference in boiling temperatures between the two liquids. If there is a large difference in the boiling points (>70 o C)between the two liquids then simple distillation is probably the best option. On the other hand, if there is only a small temperature difference between the two liquids a fractional distillation is the preferrable option.
LabGuide software (optional) ensures it is easy for the technician to store and retrieve records, carry out measuring processes and check values. The program includes a secure user management feature, whereby each user is assigned to a group through which they will be assigned access rights. All actions are recorded in an audit trail, according to the requirements of 21 CFR Part 11. In addition, the user may set up and manage their own measuring methods with product specific marginal values. LabGuide is the result of collaboration between Krüss Optronic and iCD GmbH on behalf of Laboratory Information/Management-Systems (LIMS) LABS/Q.
