cannabis-distillation

Cleaning a B/R spinning band distillation system couldn’t be easier. Just distill some ethanol to dissolve any residue left behind in the boiler, distillation column, fraction collector and receivers.  No need to disassemble the distillation column in order to clean. For cleaning after a run, just load a boiling flask with ethanol, launch the automatic […]

wiped film distillation of cannabis oil

Wiped film (WF) distillation is intended to be operated as a continuous process.  Continuous processes have the advantage of running nonstop.  Oil is fed in one end and product comes out the other end. But wiped film for cannabis oil is being operated as a multi stage batch process which is on the other end […]

terp trap for collecting terpenes

B/R is the only company in the cannabis industry using a stainless steel cold trap. Why would you use glass (an insulator) as a material for a cold trap?  It is horrible at transferring heat/cold.* The condensing surfaces in the B/R cold trap are made of stainless steel which has 10 times the thermal conductivity […]

Software and Automation for the Distillation of Cannabinoids

Automate It! The B/R 9200 spinning band distillation system is automated.  Shouldn’t everything be automated? Automation takes the guesswork out of distilling and reduces operator errors.  Get higher quality product and avoid costly mistakes.  Even monitor the distillation remotely. Automatically control: Heating Condenser temperature Reflux ratio Vacuum level Temperature range for fractions Spinning band Automatic […]

botanical extract NRTL listing

The B/R 9200 distillation system is has a been listed by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory!  We’d be happy to supply a copy of our certification upon request. Is your equipment certified by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory? This industry grew so quickly that many uncertified products have infiltrated production facilities. NRTL Safety certifications are […]

fewer passes on the SBD of THC Distillate

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 […]
