How to Do Short Path Distillation

What is Short Path Distillation? The short path distillation is a technique that removes solvents form mixtures through evaporation, which is mainly used for liquid-liquid separation. The principle is that the pressure difference between the boiling film and condensing surface is the driving force of the steam flow, and the minimum pressure will cause the […]

Ethanol Extraction: Why is Ethanol Used for Extraction?

As one of the compounds found in the cannabis plant, CBD has become more and more popular for its medical uses in the last few years. There are primarily three methods for cannabis extraction, which are CO2 extraction, butane extraction as well as ethanol extraction. Among them, the ethanol extraction is a common extraction method. […]

What is a Short Path Distillation?

The short path distillation is more and more well-received in many fields. Compared to other separation methods, such as extraction, filtration and crystallization, it has the advantage that no other solvents than system components are required, thus ensuring that no new impurities are introduced. So what is a short path distillation? Let’s talk about it […]

Is Ethanol Extraction Better than CO2?

It is well recognized that CBD has become more and more popular for its numeral medical uses in the last few years as one of the important compounds coming from the hemp or cannabis plant. And the cannabis industries never stop looking for better and efficient methods of CBD extraction. There are mainly three methods […]

Boiling Point of CBD under Vacuum

The cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural compound extracted from hemp or cannabis plant. Generally, CBD possesses a high boiling point under the normal atmospheric condition, which is quite difficult for distillation. As we all know, boiling point can be changed under various circumstances. So under the condition of vacuum, CBD can get a lower boiling […]
