Operating Principle of short path distillation

Molecular distillation is a special liquid-liquid

separation technology, which is different from
the traditional distillation principle according
to boiling point difference. It depends on the
difference of molecular mean free path to
separate different matters. Molecular mean
free path means the path between molecules
striking two times. When the mixture liquid
flows along the heating board and are heated,
light and heavy molecule will become into
vapor phase. Light and heavy molecule will
have different moving distance when they are
in vapor phase because they have different
mean free path. Supposing that we put a
condensation board at the proper position,
Light molecule can reach the board and will
be condensed, then be guided along the
condensation board; while the heavy molecule
cannot reach the condensation board and will
be guided along the heating board. In this way,
the objective of separation has been made.

Application of molecular distillation:

Molecular distillation, also called short-path distillation, is particularly useful in isolating

components of heat-sensitive liquids or in separating substances with very high boiling

Characteristics of molecular distillation technology:

It is an advanced, new and high separation technology, which has following advantages:

1. Operation temperature is low (lower than boiling point), with reduced pressure (lower than
1Pa), heating time is short (several seconds) and the efficiency of separation is high.
2. Removing odor, color and impurities of mixture.

3. The course of separation is physical, preventing separated matter from pollution,

especially keeping original quality of natural extraction.
4. The separation degree is higher than the traditional distillation.
5. Operating at a process pressures in the range of 0,001 mbar.

Invac process Laboratory Short Path Distillation System is a small Molecular

Distillation System for R&D facilities.

It is invaluable in developing formulations, generating products and proving process

separations involving Molecular Distillation Technology.
Since small quantities of the materials are required, this versatile tool
provides the means for isolating small quantities of your formulation for
evaluation. The Single Stage Distillation Plant runs at 2 to 5 liters per hour,
with shorter run times possible. This is a complete system including the feed

Short Path Evaporator and internal condenser, hot oil heater, condenser
cooling system, cold trap, and vacuum system.

The Short Path Evaporator and internal condenser and product piping is
constructed of high quality S.S the wiper basket and rotary vacuum
pump are constructed of stainless steel. Gaskets are made of Viton®. Optional materials
can be specified as required.
