About InCon Process Systems:
InCon Process Systems (IPS) has over 25 years of High Vacuum Distillation technology experience, InCon Process Systems has designed, built, and operated the world’s largest distillation plants for hundreds of different compounds. InCon’s experience and knowledge ranging from highly specialized fractional distillation plants and lab-scale precision systems to 50m2 industrial-scale distillation plants has set them apart within the Short Path and Thin Film distillation markets. InCon’s partnership has allowed for true industrial manufacturing experience to be scaled down into our industry, focusing on automation, reliability, and the capability of 24/7 manufacturing.
Thin Film Distillation is the best method for distilling and purifying thermally sensitive compounds, due to the short residence time of product exposed to heat. This, coupled with an internal condenser, provides exceptional efficiency and speed.
Short Path Distillation was designed to minimize the length that vapor needs to travel from where it is generated to where it is condensed. The thin film system achieves this by utilizing a high-efficiency evaporator at the center of the wiper basket, providing the shortest distance for the molecules to travel.
The PTFE wiper blades of the system’s wiper basket spread a smooth and even thin film across the inner surface area of the single-stage, providing excellent heat transfer, evaporation, and condensation rates.
- Precise Control – This product includes a precision flow meter and a jacketed feed tank. The feed tank material is precisely fed into the unit by a VFD-controlled gear pump, allowing for flow rates of up to 20 liters per hour. A second VFD-controlled gear pump also precisely pumps distillate and residue fractions from the evaporator continuously.
- High Vacuum Systems – The comprehensive vacuum system includes two configurations, a high vacuum rotary vane-focused configuration for high boiling point compounds and an oil-less high capacity/high vacuum pump for low-to-medium-boiling-point compounds.
- Low Vacuum Systems – In order to address variable feed rates into the system, a high vacuum/high capacity oil-less vacuum pump is coupled with a compound system pressure gauge, which in turn controls a vacuum valve, which gives users the ability to run the system at variable pressures and vacuum depths. When performing low-boiling point distillation (aggressive or gentle volatile stripping), the oil-less vacuum pump may be used to run at higher pressure with the vacuum controller.
- Two-points of Vacuum Measurement – Gives real-time analytics so users can compare system pressures to pump pressures.
