5L Fractional Distillation Kit

This kit is fully compatible with our EliteLab Automation Software!

Compatible with the LS PDH-2.

With Lab Society’s new PDH-2 distillation head, users are seeing speed increases of up to 200% from the prior 5L system.

Enhanced Speed + Productivity.

Designed for speed and productivity, the larger distillation head capitalizes on increased flow rate and increased surface area, dramatically improving efficiency.

With the increase in overall throughput, users are experiencing higher potencies than ever, thanks to product spending less time in the system.

Precisely engineered, patent-pending glassware.

Lab Society’s precisely engineered parts and patent-pending glassware designs make the distillation process easier, less user-intensive, and more efficient than ever before.

Modular by nature.

The 5L G2 system features a modular design, allowing you to modify or specialize your system to meet specific production criteria. Our new system also includes material transfer tools, cleaning tools, and extra setup parts to allow you to customize the kit to fit your specific needs.  

Monitor everything. Log everything.

The G2 system makes use of precise temperature controllers, temperature monitors, and vacuum monitors, so you can monitor everything.

Computer connectable.

All of Lab Society’s controllers are computer compatible, using custom software for unprecedented logging and control. With a computer connected, you can easily control the G2 unit and log valuable data at the same time.

We know you’ll love being able to set ramp programs and I/O functions.

Everything’s included.

This commercial-scale distillation system includes all of the hoses, clamps, connectors, tools, and accessories to perform your distillations effectively and with ease.

Tech support long after your purchase.

Our team is here for you, ready to answer any questions you have before, during, and after your purchase. If you can’t already tell, we’re extremely proud of our new G2 evolution of short path kits!


  • To run an auxiliary condenser kit, you will need a 4-neck, 5000 mL flask for the equipment to operate correctly.
  • You will also need a vacuum pump for this kit, and we recommend a Welch CRV or a Chemstar – the most commonly-used pumps for this application.
  • All of our kits are custom made to order and may take three to five days to build. Shipping is not included in this timeframe.
