(Stainless Steel, Single Stage, 0.25m2)

Lab Society has partnered with High Velocity Extractors (HVE) to bring you a Single Stage, Thin Film Distillation Unit. Our new system addresses growing industry production demands while keeping budgetary constraints in mind. 

With Stainless Steel Thin Film Distillation technology, this 0.25 m2 short path distillation evaporator outperforms every other unit in its price class. 

Features:


  • Approx. 6 kg/hour Input Feed Capability for Volatile Stripping
  • Approx. 2-4 kg/hour Input Feed Capability – for cutting and polishing the main body
  • 0.25 m2 Short Path Evaporator (1)
  • Virgin PTFE Wiper Blades with 316 SS Wiper Cage
  • Removable Hybrid Still Cold Finger
  • Manual Inlet Feed Tank with Heater/PID
  • Electric Heat Bands (4) with PID Control Box
  • Precision Vacuum Gauge
  • Baffled Cold Trap with Receiver (Dry Ice/LN2)
  • Manual Valves
  • 80/20 Common Frame with Wheels
  • 316 Stainless Steel Construction

Starting out at $85k, these systems feature a virgin PTFE wiper basket inside of a six-inch 316 Stainless Steel evaporator body.  

Heat is provided via four (4) electronic heat bands which are precisely controlled by a single, commonly mounted PID for full temperature control without the use of expensive, dangerous heating oils.  

Jacketed feed tank.

Feed is provided by a jacketed feed tank, which is also heated electronically and controlled by a separate temperature controller for precise input feed temperature.  

Strips volatiles at 6kg per hour.

The unit can perform volatile stripping at a rate of 6 kilograms (kg) per hour utilizing the included “cone-bottom” condenser replacement.

For high boiling point, short path distillation, the unit features a high-surface area, removable inner condensation coil that can perform at 2-4 kg per hour feed rates.

EliteLab and Bluetooth compatible.

Thin Film Distillation System
Precise vacuum monitoring and analytics are provided by the LS-PVM-1BT, a Bluetooth-capable (and EliteLab compatible) vacuum gauge mounted to the rear of the high surface area, baffled Auxiliary Condenser/Cold trap, which is also constructed of Stainless Steel.
