Short-Path Wiped-Film Distillation Equipment

Root Sciences’ wiped-film molecular distillation plants are specifically intended for the processing of cannabis and hemp crude oil, with honest and accurate throughput/yield rates reflecting that. Designed and manufactured by VTA of Germany, these machines are expertly engineered to produce distillate that can be used in a wide variety of products commonly found on the market today.

Equipment is available to suit a range of operations, from small-scale labs focusing on the recreational THC market, all the way up to large-scale hemp processing facilities focusing on industrial CBD production, and everything in between.

The VKL 70-5 is Root Sciences’ entry-level system in the distillation lineup and is suitable for processors in need of industry-standard production rates for the recreational cannabis market. If increased production rates are desired, the VKL can easily be combined in series with an additional VKL unit, doubling effective throughput and simplifying the process flow. The dual-system upgrade option adds redundancy (for maintenance or in the event of downtime) and can also be performed at a later stage, allowing your equipment to grow with your operation.
