B/R Instrument

Distrilab Laboratory and Process is distributing B/R Instrument distillation systems for more than 20 years. B/R Instrument has specialized in laboratory distillation equipment since 1966. Common uses of its distillation systems include solvent recycling, solvent purification, crude oil distillation, and many other applications of high efficiency fractional distillation.

Solvent Recycling in laboratories has become more common place in recent years. Solvent recyclers are used in histology labs to recycle xylene, alcohol, formalin and xylene substitutes. HPLC solvent recycling and GPC solvent recycling have also become more popular due to the high cost of these solvents. Many other types of solvents are also recyclable. Solvent recycling can save money in the laboratory by greatly reducing the cost of purchased solvents as well as he disposal cost of solvents.

Crude oil distillation and petroleum distillation are also common applications of our fractional distillation equipment. Traditional, true boiling point distillation (D2892) and vacuum pot still distillation (D5236) can be performed on samples from 1 to 200 liters. Samples from 1 liter to 10 ml in size can be analyzed using our spinning band distillation equipment.

ASTM D1160 vacuum distillation equipment is available in fully automatic, semi automatic, and manually operated models.

Fractional distillation has many other applications which are too numerous to mention here. B/R Instrument can provide a high efficiency distillation system for your application. Fully automatic and manually operated distillation equipment is available.

Fluid Metering FMI

FMI is a metering pumps and dispensers manufacturer, who pioneered the first valveless rotating and reciprocating piston metering pump concept over 55 years ago. Enhanced and improved over the years, FMI metering pumps continue to provide innovative fluid control solutions. FMI dispensers and metering pumps are the industry standard for high degree of accuracy, precision and durability.

Utilized in a broad range of medical, laboratory, analytical, industrial process, environmental and OEM applications requiring precision fluid control, FMI pumps have provided users with the ultimate performance.

Particle Metrix

Often, one single method is not enough to get full information on concentration and size distribution of nanoparticles.

Many samples like proteins, metal colloids, nano-bubbles contain a large amount of nano between 1 and 10 nm, aggregates however in low concentration. Particle metrix offers two light scattering methods, 180° DLS and NTA Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis, compensate each other perfectly in size and concentration.  180° DLS NANO-flex® stands for a high dynamic range in size & concentration, whereas NTA ZetaView® outperforms in the analysis of nanoparticles at low concentration.

Takasago Electric, Inc. is a specialized manufacturer of chemically inert miniature valves and pumps. Takasago was founded more than 50 years ago in Japan and has, in addition to its Japanese factory, a production facility in China. Takasago “Clean Valves” and pumps are used in state-of-the-art fluid mechanics in analyzers in, for example, medical diagnostics, environmental measurements and quality control in the food, dairy and pharmaceutical industries.

In addition to the aforementioned solenoid valves and pumps, Takasago also supplies pinch valves, pneumatic valves, miniature diaphragm pumps, peristaltic pumps, piezoelectric pumps and plunger pumps. Also manifolds and fluidic chips.

Takasago’s “Clean Valves” are produced in a clean room. This minimizes contamination, which is one of the major causes of failure of solenoid valves. Takasago has developed a number of innovative, patented technologies, such as the “Soft Seal” membranes for liquids with particles and the “Ventiduct” for isolating the coil when pumping corrosive liquids or high temperature liquids.
