10L Short Path Distillation Kit with P10 Distillation Head

This unit carries a 2 day lead time.

(Note: Stainless Steel Table NOT Included.)

Do you need an effective way to separate your mixtures? Then you’re on the right page. This apparatus will help you save on energy costs and enjoy stress-free operations. Besides that, you’ll be getting a cost-effective but durable distillation kit.

Maybe you’ve been in a similar situation before. You bought your device, but it cracked and probably spilled valuable raw materials. And now you want a quality product because you’re tired of the losses.

Worry no more! The 10L short path distillation kit will help you accomplish your goals.

But, you might wonder, what makes our appliance different from other brands? Thankfully, manufacturers make this glass equipment with high-quality borosilicate glass. This design means heat won’t damage the instrument because it has a low coefficient for expansion.

Additionally, you’ll preserve heat during separation through the P10 distillation head. And you’ll prevent clogging and boost the appliance’s efficiency because the tubing has an ample internal diameter. Imagine the hassle you’ll avoid with this wise investment.

Also, are you tired of vacuum leaks? Of course, you are. This glitch reduces your sample’s quality, thus affecting your sales. And losses aren’t glamorous. Luckily, this apparatus has fine-grinded joints which support pulling and sustaining deep vacuum levels. 

Examples of short path distillation applications you can use with this machine are purifying edible oils, making fragrances, producing fuels, etc.

Stop waiting. Order your appliance, and we’ll deliver it to your address in 1-2 business days. Does that sound good? Optimize production with the premium 10L short path distillation kit now!

The 10L Short Path Distillation Kit features our USA made P10 Distillation Head. Every component in this turnkey is made for precision, throughput, and repeatable results. Also included the Kangaroo digital thermometer which is very rugged and reliable.

You will also receive a Ribbed Dewar Style Glass Cold Trap to keep all volatiles and solvents out of your vacuum system. This Kit gives you the basic necessities of a short path distillation system and allows you to add on a temperature control system and vacuum pump to fit your needs.

Distillation Quick Start Guide

This guide gives basic quick start instructions for distillation systems. It is intended to provide a starting point for learning the process. Parameters should be adjusted to suit specific needs,

Before beginning distillation, ensure the following steps have been taken:

    • Vacuum Pump is in good working order. Pump should be run against dry load to allow internals to warm up. Oil should be clear. Cloudy or dark oil should be changed.
    • All glass components are in good working order and ready to be assembled
    • A winterization and degassing procedure has been done to prepare oil for distillation

Once all three of these steps have been completed, you are ready to begin distilling.

  1. Begin by placing stir bar in boiling flask and then load your material. This should be done using a funnel. A small amount of alcohol in the oil will give it a thinner consistency making it easier to transfer.
  2. Assemble all glassware and ensure each joint is properly greased. Do not use too much, as the vacuum pressure might pull some grease into the system. To ensure a full seal, spread grease in a circular motion by rotating glassware
  3. Attach circulator to condenser and set temperature to 50C. Allow circulator to reach temperature before beginning distillation.
  4. Connect vacuum pump to manifold. The manifold will allow you to isolate each individual component as well as let atmosphere into and out of the system.
  5. Connect receiving cow to cold trap.
  6. Connect cold trap to manifold.
  7. Connect vacuum gauge to manifold.
  8. At this point, ensure all connections are correct. Also ensure receiving cow is positioned to collect the first fraction in the far-left receiving flask. Circulator should be at its set temperature. Turn on vacuum pump to begin process.
  9. Turn on heat and set to 60C. Vacuum pump will begin to pull down and temperature will begin to rise. Watch the gauge to monitor vacuum pressure and stability.
  10. Start stir slower and increase speed with temperature.
  11. Once you are close to 60C, increase the temperature 20 degrees. Continue to raise the heat incrementally in 20-degree steps, increasing the set temperature as you near your set point. Increase temperatures incrementally until you reach 220C.
  12. You will see your first fraction somewhere between 180C and 190C or slightly before. This is the "heads" fraction.
  13. You will move to your second fraction when you see an increased reaction in the head, a slight color change toward golden, as well as a thickening of distillate. When this fraction hits, allow the distillate to "self-clean" the head for a minute or two then, rotate the cow to the middle receiving flask. Collect your "main body" fraction. You will see temps between 190-220C during this fraction.
  14. Continue to increase stirring speed as necessary. Reaction in the head may vary but it should never stop. As fluid level in the boiling flask decreases, increase stir speed.
  15. The final "tails" fraction is a mixture of the first and second fractions and should be saved for re-distillation later. Ideally, you want to turn the cow to the final flask before the tails fraction hits. The "tails" fraction has an obvious color change and will be darker than the "main body" fraction. You will see temps between 200-250°C during this fraction.
  16. As fluid level in the boiling flask decreases even more, set stirring RPM higher (1000+ RPM). You may need to compensate with a bit more heat to finish of the final fraction as well.
  17. Once process is complete, stop heat, stop stir, and stop vacuum. Let atmosphere into the system. Be sure to properly store your distillate as exposure to air and light can cause oxidation.
