Product Information

Water stills, Aquatron®, A4000

• Fully automatic operation

• High purity pyrogen free output

• Low temperature distillate

• Operates from any raw water supply

• Reservoir level control

• Simple conversion to pre-treated feed

• Supplied with wall mounting bracket

• Safety features allow unattended operation

• Simple to clean

The high quality borosilicate glassware coupled with silica sheathed

heaters gives pyrogen free distillate of the highest purity from virtually any raw water supply.

All glass construction allows rapid descaling using strong mineral acids. A built in \"clean\" function and integral acid addition funnel make the cleaning operation simple and safe with no need to dismantle any of the glassware. A large bore stopcock with PTFE key is fitted for easy draining of chemicals after cleaning.

A flow sensing device will detect any reduction in the flow of cooling water to below the required level and will turn off the still before it can overheat. Sensing the flow of cooling water rather than its pressure is safer and allows the still to run normally on low pressure supplies down to 3psi (20kPa). As a fail-safe device there is an over-temperature thermostat mounted in the boiling chamber.

The Aquatron® is very easy and safe to assemble and maintain. Both the acrylic safety screen and the cabinet lid are removable giving unrivalled access to the glassware components.

Every Aquatron® water still is supplied with a reservoir level control; a simple and effective system which can be fitted to virtually any type of reservoir vessel. It will turn the still off when the reservoir is full and restart it when the level in the reservoir drops as distilled water is removed for use making it fully automatic water purification

A4000 Produces 4 litres/hour single distilled water. Can operate standing on the laboratory bench or be wall mounted. Supplied with easy to fit wall mounting bracket.

Aquatron® conversion to pre-treated feed

• Eliminates descaling

• Improves distillate purity

• Use with any pre-treated water source.

• No loss of treated water

A simple conversion kit is available so that the Aquatron® water still can be operated from a pretreated feed. Suitable sources of pretreatment are almost any model of deioniser, reverse osmosis unit or a piped supply of treated water.

The pre-treated water is fed directly to the boiler and cooling water is supplied to the condenser separately. The controls ensure that pre-treated water is supplied to the boiler automatically as

required, preventing overflow and costly waste. A safety device is incorporated to protect the still in the event of failure of the pretreated supply.

The conversion kit can be fitted easily in a few minutes to any existing Aquatron® model should the need arise.


Deioniser, Aquatron®, ADH

• Output up to 60 litres/hour

• Low cost disposable cartridges

• Colour change indicates resin condition at a glance

• Free standing or wall mountable

• Ideal as pre-treatment for Aquatron® water stills

A simple, portable deioniser giving good quality water at an affordable price.

The disposable ion exchange cartridges slowly change colour from green to blue as they are exhausted giving at a glance indication of the resin condition. Supplied complete with flexible hose for connection to a tap and a stopcock to control the flow rate.

Can be linked in series with the Aquatron® filter either by a flexible hose or the rigid coupling (ALC) available as an accessory. Ideal as a pre-treatment for Aquatron® water stills. Housing and ion exchange cartridges must be ordered separately.
