Spinning Band Distillation

Fewer passes = Faster distillation + Higher Purity + Easier Cleaning

Throughput for a wiped film system is slower since:

  • 3 passes are required
  • 3 cleaning cycles are required
  • decarbing is a separate step
  • oil must be stripped of ethanol before distilling
  • final purity is less than with a spinning band system

Wiped film requires 30- 70% more operator time and attention than spinning band or short path.

More operator interaction increases the chance for errors that can decrease product purity and yield.
