Industry Leader in Laboratory Distillation Equipment

Graduate from Short Path to Spinning Band Distillation

Short Path Distillation – Just Getting Started Short path distillation is an entry level system for making THC distillate from crude extract.¬† Its simplicity and low cost make it attractive to those new to making distillates.¬† Making THC distillate with the short path is exciting at first but in time the excitement can turn to […]

Decarbing Cannabis Oil: THCA to THC

Decarboxylation, AKA Decarbing, is the process of spontaneously converting THCA to THC with heat (approximately 80-120 C).¬† During decarbing THCA is converted to THC when the carboxylic acid group on THCA is removed liberating a CO2 molecule and leaving THC behind. Decarbing is important because THCA is not psychoactive, but THC is. Other cannabinoids like […]

Cannabinoid Distillation – Fewer Passes Equals Faster Distillation

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 […]
