Lab Society Single Stage 0.25m2 Thin Film Distillation System

Email this page:

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.


  • 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/Liquid Nitrogen)
  • Manual Valves
  • 80/20 Common Frame with Wheels
  • 316 Stainless Steel Construction
  • Dual inline cold traps and booster pump kit combination highly recommended

The following components are NOT included in the list price

  • Welch CRPpro 16 vacuum pump and exhaust filter
  • Huber Minichiller, adapters and hose
  • Pressure control kit for HVE
  • PolyScience IP80 immersion cooler

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.
