QCCC Computer Controlled Cracking Column
The QCCC unit for cracking and distilling oil is a complete lab tool that allows to the students to carry out a cracking reaction, and the study and the control of different variables that condition it.
The Computer Controlled Cracking Column, "QCCC", for cracking and distilling oil is a complete lab tool that allows to the students to carry out a cracking reaction, and the study and the control of different variables that condition it. Also, the production cycle will be completed by means of a separation, purification and analysis of the obtained products in that cracking reaction.This unit is controlled from a computer. That allows a register of temperature and pressure data and the control of the cracking and distillation processes. Control software is easy and intuitive.
It consists of a glass body, perfectly fixed to an aluminum structure, which allows its handling with complete security, and several systems that allow to control the reaction: stirring, cooling, emptying and heating.
This Computer Controlled Unit is supplied with the EDIBON Computer Control System (SCADA), and includes: The unit itself + a Control Interface Box + a Data Acquisition Board + Computer Control, Data Acquisition and Data Management Software Packages, for controlling the process and all parameters involved in the process.
- Carry out cracking reactions.
