The Role that Short Path Distillation Plays in CBD Oil Extraction
The short path distillation is different from the traditional distillation, which relies on the difference of boiling point separation. The difference is achieved by the difference of the average free path of the molecular movement of different substances. Short path distillation can be used to extract cannabidiol from medical marijuana. The traditional methods for extracting cannabidiol are more complicated and cumbersome, and the content of cannabidiol obtained is lower.
Generally, extraction equipment extract cbd out of hemp, and then users get a mixture of cbd and solvent liquid. The next step is to separate cbd and solvent liquid, which short path distillation can do. Short path distillation can distill two different kinds of substances at the same time, which is a good equipment to separate cbd and solvent liquid.
How can Organic and Inorganic Compounds be Separated by Short Path Distillation?
There are several methods for separating organic and inorganic substances, such as extraction separation, ion exchange, digestion, volatility and so on. Short path distillation separates organic and inorganic substances through extraction separation. Short path distillation is a relatively new liquid-liquid separation technology, which is widely used in industrial production. It can solve a large number of problems that conventional distillation techniques cannot solve.
Applications of Short Path Distillation in Pharmaceutical Field
The short path distillation can be widely used in many fields, including pharmaceutical field. Short path distillation can efficiently separate and purify natural active substances, which provides a simple way for the separation and purification of monomer components in the process of manufacturing new drugs. Short path distillation can be used to make natural medicine standards, purification of pharmaceutical intermediates, such as the manufacture of glucose derivatives, natural vitamins A, D, E and B carotene and so on.
Benefits of Short Path Distillation
- Short path distillation can distill two different kinds of substances at the same time, while the traditional distillation and evaporation equipment can only distill one substance.
- Short path distillation can distill several substances that traditional distillation equipment can not.
Drawbacks of Short Path Distillation
- The price of short path distillation equipment is higher than that of traditional distillation equipment. When using short path distillation equipment, it is necessary to ensure the high vacuum degree of the system pressure.
- It is difficult to process the equipment and the cost is high.
