Short Path Distillation
Short-path distillation is a distillation technique where the distillate travels a short distance. It separates the mixtures based on differences in their volatility in a boiling liquid mixture under reduced pressure. As the sample mixture is heated, its vapors rise a short distance into a vertical condenser where they are cooled by water. The use of a vacuum ensures that the atmospheric pressure within your system is removed, making it easier to distill denser molecules in a shorter amount of time.
The advantage is that the heating temperature can be considerably lower (at reduced pressure) than the boiling point of the liquid at standard pressure, and the distillate only has to travel a short distance before condensing. This technique is used for compounds which are unstable at high temperatures because it allows a lower boiling temperature to be used. A short path ensures that little compound is lost on the sides of the apparatus.
Whether you’re interested in short-path fractional distillation or short-path molecular distillation, it’s important you utilize reliable short-path distillation equipment that guarantees quality results. The short-path distillation of cannabis can be thrown off entirely when damaged parts or flimsy products are thrown into the mix. Before starting the short-path distillation of THC, make sure you’re using a proven short-path distillation kit that ensures your project is completed in a timely and cost-efficient manner.
