Root Sciences Short Path Distillation apparatus is a Wiped Film Evaporator that can process up to
1500ml per hour of BHO or CO2 oil, turning it into a high value clear THC distillate.
How it works
In our apparatus a rotating wiper system distributes the BHO or CO2 oil to a film on
the inner surface of a heated pipe on the short path evaporator. The evaporation process is sped up by keeping
the product film turbulent so that the heat transfer and mass transfer are optimized.
The residence time is less than 10 seconds and the vapours are condensed on an external condenser as shown on the diagram below.
Because the distillation process is under vacuum, this will allow you to maintain a continuous
feed and add more oil without having to break vacuum.
