Product Description

The combined distillers for volatile acidity, sulphur and alcohol in wines

VA/SO2 Kombo Glasschem Distillers

The VA/SO2 Kombo Glasschem stills consist of a distillation unit for volatile acidity combined with 2 or 4 units to determine the sulphur dioxide, according to the Kombo version. These instruments are certainly the ideal solution for wine industries and third-parties laboratories which must perform distillations of more parameters, simultaneously: the VA/SO2 Kombo Glasschem distillers allow the additional analysis of the alcoholic content, with an accuracy better than 0,2%, thanks to the ebulliometric technique and to the special supplied software. The new design, the auto-draining system for eliminating the exhausted wine sample at the end of the distillation for volatile acidity, the flow-rate control system of the air stream for SO2, the high efficiency of the wine heating and the absence of gas leaks in the environment get these new instruments really exclusive.


  • “All-in-one” instruments for the analysis of volatile acidity, SO2 and alcoholic content
  • 2 available versions to satisfy all needs: Kombo 1+2 and Kombo 1+4
