Ai 6″ Glass Turnkey 0.25m2 Thin Film Distillation System

Email this page:


  • High precision PTFE rollers and inner glass surface allow a complete and uniform thin film on the heated surface, and prevent process residue
  • Pre-installed cooling/heating tubing with fluid direction labels and M16 ports
  • Low placed feeding flask for ease of operation
  • Driving motor with magnetic coupling sealing ensures high vacuum level
  • Constructed with high borosilicate glass 3.3, stainless steel and Viton gaskets for ultimate corrosion resistance
  • Transparent glass system allows you to see through all processes
  • Auto delay safety circuit for diffusion pump cooling
  • Heavy duty stainless steel frame with stationable casters for mobility and stability
  • Optional Agilent diffusion pump with oil level indicator
  • Optional Turbo pump with fittings
  • Optional PolyScience immersion cooler down to -80°C (no dry ice needed)
  • Ai on-site installation within contiguous US included
  • Liquid Nitrogen (in cold trap) is highly recommended for system to get to optimal vacuum levels
  • UL/CSA certified


  • 1-2 day class on Ai Thin Film Distillation Systems, including setup, operation, cleaning and maintenance.
  • Class is private with five students limit.
  • Student requirements should be presented to Ai prior to arrival. Courses can be customized to meet your extraction goals, allowing you to optimize your time and output.
  • Students are responsible for their own accommodations.


  • Never fill circulated heaters or chillers with water, always use Ai or manufacturer’s recommended fluid
  • Always leave ample fluid space in heater reservoir to allow fluid heat expansion
  • Always keep system vacuum passage or drain valve open when heating up circulation jackets
  • Always make sure your vacuum pumps and diffusion pump fluid is clean and within limits
