Fractional Distillation

Fractional Distillation

Selecting a pump that supplies deep vacuum is critical during fractional distillation to effectively separate components into discrete fractions.

Selecting a pump that supplies deep vacuum is critical during fractional distillation to effectively separate components into discrete fractions.

Separating Products into Fractions

Whether you use short path distillation, a wiped film evaporator, or another apparatus, fractional distillation is a critical step in your production process. Separate compounds like cannaboids, terpenes, and contaminants with this precise process to create purer products. Using a vacuum pump that supplies deep vacuum to the your still will cause fractions to boil faster and at lower temperatures, which helps maintain product integrity. A vacuum pump that can reach down to 10-3 torr allows distillation of fractions at moderate temperatures that do not cause the oil to thermally degrade. Selecting a pump with enough flow at the pressure range and using a precise vacuum controller are also important considerations for efficient separation. Using vacuum control with programmable features will greatly enhance reproducibility and product consistency.
