Astori VA Glasschem Volatile Acidity Distillers

VA Glasschem

Astori Tecnica


The determination of volatile acidity in wine samples is one of the most frequent and important analyses. Oenological laboratories often need to perform distillations of many samples at the same time, and having only one instrument for a single sample prolongs the analysis time.

Today, the new VA Glasschem equipment for 1, 3, 4 or 6 samples allows the realization of very precise distillations with surprising advantages.
The possibility to distill more samples at the same time (with VA-3, VA-4 and VA-6), the new design, the self-aspiration system and self-removal of the previous sample at the end of the procedure, the high heating efficiency and the absence of gas leakage in the air are special features of VA Glasschem equipment.

  • - Equipment with 1, 3, 4 or 6 distillation heads
  • - Applicable to all oenological samples
  • - Automatic elimination of the previous sample at the end of the distillation process
  • - Possibility of successive distillations without addition of cold water
  • - Low water consumption
  • - Highly efficient electric heating
  • - Low heat dissipation
  • - No heating difference between successive distillations
  • - Small dimensions
  • - Ergonomic design
  • - Easy and immediate installation


  • - Distillation duration: 12 minutes
  • - Water consumption: VA-1 = 0.2 l/min; VA-3 = 0.6 l/min; VA-6 = 1.2 l/min.
  • - Dimensions: VA-1 = 30x20x75 (H) cm; VA-3 = 45x40x75 cm; VA-6 = 75x40x75 cm.
  • - Weight: VA-1 = 7 kg; VA-3 = 12 kg; VA-6 = 20 kg.
