24/40 Short Path Distillation Apparatus
Used with 25mm immersion thermometer with 10/18 standard taper joint. One-piece and compact design for easy and efficient use . The short condensate path is dedicated for the purification of small amount yet precious synthetic product.
Short path distillation is a process used to purify and separate complex mixtures by utilizing the differences in boiling points of various components. This technique is commonly used in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and cannabis industries to extract and purify essential oils, terpenes, and other compounds.
A short path distillation apparatus typically consists of a distillation flask, a heating mantle, a vacuum pump, a condenser, and a receiving flask. The mixture to be distilled is heated in the distillation flask, and the vapor is carried through a short path to the condenser, where it is condensed back into a liquid form. The condensed liquid is collected in the receiving flask, while the remaining components of the mixture remain in the distillation flask or are removed through a separate outlet.
The short path distillation process is effective because it allows for the separation of components with similar boiling points, which may not be possible using other distillation techniques. Additionally, the short path between the distillation flask and the condenser minimizes the exposure of the components to air and other contaminants, which can help to preserve their purity.
