What does short path distillation do

What is short path

  Short path refers to the short distance within experimental equipment, which is a short glass tube. Evaporated gas-phase substances are transferred along the short path and turned into liquid.

What is short path distillation

  Short path distillation is a high-efficiency distillation equipment, which is widely used in the concentration, crystallization, separation, drying of materials. Short path distillation can be used in chemical field, industrial field, pharmaceutical field, bio-pharmaceutical, solvent recovery and other fields.

Short path distillation is an effective distillation device, which can be widely used in many fields such as chemical labs, industrial factories, people’s kitchen and other fields. It is a liquid-liquid separation technology applied to industrial production, and it can solve a lot of problems that cannot be solved by conventional distillation technology.

What is short path distillation used for

 Short path distillation is used on the concentration, separation, purification of materials. It is widely used in many fields, for example chemical labs, industrial factories, textile field and other fields. In our daily life, people always use short path distillation at their kitchens to concentrate foods or fruit juices. In this function, rotary evaporator can do the same.

How does distillation purify

  As we all know, short path distillation is a efficient and versatile distillation equipment, which can purify materials very well. So many people wonder how short path distillation purify materials and how does that work?

  Short path distillation is to purify materials by using heating energy to vaporize water and separate it from the mixture. In this way, short path distillation gets the water vapor evaporated out of the mixture, in order to purify the materials. Because water is a heat sensitive substance, short path distillation is suitable for purifying materials. These are some other purification equipment that have same function as short path distillation, such as rotary evaporator.

What are the different types of distillation process

  There are several different types of distillation process, including simple distillation, fractional distillation, steam distillation and vacuum distillation. These different distillation process all separate materials through their different boiling points.

How is CBD oil distilled

  Distillation is one of the most important steps of processing cbd oil. Distilled cbd oil generally contains 80-85% cbd. People always use distillation machines to distill cbd, such as short path distillation, falling film evaporator, rotary evaporator, closed loop extractor and so on. These distillation equipment separate cbd oil and other substance through different methods.

What does short path distillation do

  Short path distillation can be used to concentrate, purify and separate substances from mixtures. It separates materials through transferring materials along a short distance. And different from rotary evaporator, short path distillation can distill two or three different kinds of substances at one time while rotary evaporator can only evaporate one kind of substance. Therefore, short path distillation is more high-efficiency.

What are the benefits of short path distillation

Short path distillation is widely used in many fields and materials, because it has several benefits. The benefits are as follows:

  1. Short path distillation can distill one or two kinds of substances at the same time, while many other distillation methods can only distill one kind of substance. Distilling two kinds of substances makes short path distillation more effective than other distillation methods. And that’s also why it is popular.
  2. Short path distillation can separate the distillate substances very clearly, so that users can get substances that are quite pure. For example, THC and CBD distillates both are distilled from cannabis. These two kinds of substances have different boiling points, so they can be distilled by short path distillation. They can be separated very clearly, so that users can get pure liquid of THC and CBD.
