Rectification in detail
with CE 600
Rectification is an important thermal separation method in industry for separating homogeneous liquid mixtures, e.g. to fractionate crude oil.
With CE 600, GUNT developed a trainer that leaves nothing to be desired:
- extensive experimental range with 3 interchangeable columns: bubble cap tray column, sieve tray column and packed column
- device control with PLC, operation via touch screen or an end device
- remote learning: real-time access via end devices enables lab experiments with sufficient distance

GUNT Fluid Line - fundamentals of fluid mechanics
Remote teaching and learning
GUNT Fluid Line
GUNT offers the FLUID LINE series of innovative devices for the fundamentals of fluid mechanics. With the GUNT Fluid Line you can also carry out lab experiments: remote and digital.
How does that work?
Laboratory experiments are possible with sufficient distance via screen mirroring technology:
the experiment is carried out on one end device or directly on the base module. On the other end devices, such as notebook, smartphone or tablet, the experiments can be followed at a sufficient distance. Screen mirroring gives you access to ongoing experiments on up to 10 end devices.
