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 VTA VKS 70-5 is the mid-level system in the VTA line up and is suitable for both large-scale cannabis and small-scale hemp operations. If increased production rates are desired, it can easily be combined in series with an additional VKS 70-5 unit, doubling effective throughput and simplifying the process flow. This 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.
