Root Sciences Short Path Distillation apparatus is a Wiped Film Evaporator that can process up to
1700ml 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 cannabis oil into a thin film onto the inner wall of 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 vapors are condensed onto the internal condenser as shown on the diagram below.
The feed zoner of the system is not under vacuum, this will allow you to maintain a continuous feed into the system being able to add more oil without having to break vacuum.
