Wiped Film Molecular Distillation Units

Wiped Film Molecular (short-path) distillation is the best thermal separation method for heat-sensitive material because it is the gentlest type, causing the least amount of thermal degradation of product. Our wiped film evaporation and distillation system are widely used for cannabis/hemp, garlic oil, cod liver oil and chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Shorter residence time, lower separation temperature, capability of continuous and unattended operation makes LAB1ST wiped film molecular (short-path) evaporation and distillation system standing out.

Working Principle 

  • Wiped film molecular distillation is a special liquid-liquid separation technology, which is different from the traditional distillation by boiling point difference separation principle, but by different substances molecular movement of the average free path difference to achieve separation.

Glass Wiped Film Molecular Distillation Unit


  General features​

  • All Borosilicate 3.3 glass design for a perfect view on the separation process.

  • The very low operating pressure ensure very low distillation temperature and therefore a very gentle distillation is possible. 

  • Various size options (80mm,100mm,150mm) for different throughput.  

  • Turnkey package which is plug-and-play, technical supports available.

  • upgradable for continuous distillation process.                                                                                                    

Stainless Steel Wiped Film Molecular Distillation


  General features​

  • Large feeding tank avoids add oil again.

  • Stainless steel heats up much faster than glassware, which doubled the processing rate compared to the same size glassware wiped film evaporator system. 

  • Various size options. Turnkey package which is plug-and-play.   

  • All components are made of stainless steel 316L, ensuring superior durability compared to glass units.  

  • Engineer on-site service is available (contact us about the charge rate).     

Hybrid Wiped Film Molecular Distillation


  General features​

  • A perfect combination of durability and clarity.

  • High quality Borosilicate 3.3 glass evaporator for easy monitoring of the entire process.

  • Continuous feeding/discharging with gear dosing pumps.

  • High vacuum diffusion and rotary vane pump module.

  • Jacket-heated feeding/discharging traces with superior temperature uniformity.

  • Optional dual or triple stage system        

  • Engineer on-site service is available (contact us about the charge rate).
