Toll Distillation

Interested in exploring the marketplace with your product without the capital investment of a short path distillation unit or the associated overhead? Toll distillation is a perfect alternative. Use one of Chemtech’s multi-stage, stainless steel pilot plant units where commercial quantities of material can be distilled. Chemtech Services, Inc. offers competitive hourly and per pound rates. Financial incentives, such as discounts, are offered with contract business.

Quality control is not an issue when tolling with Chemtech. Chemtech’s laboratory is equipped with analytical ability including an auto-sampling GC (Gas Chromatography), auto titration, turbidity, viscosity measurement, and more. Chemtech can toll distill quantities to meet any throughput demand your market requires. Our laboratory equipment is capable of operating at vacuum conditions of 0.001 mbar (absolute pressure) and temperature conditions as high as 350°C. These conditions equate to an atmospheric equivalent boiling point over 750°C (or 1382°F).

Our Lab Capabilities Include:

  • Gas Chromatograph w/Mass Spectrometer
  • Gas Chromatograph w/Simulated Distillation
  • HPLC
  • Computer-controlled Metrohm Auto Titrator
  • Karl Fisher Titrator
  • Brookfield Viscometer
