SHORT PATH DISTILLATION UNIT


A Short Path Distillation Unit (SPDU) is also called as Molecular Distillation Unit. It provides minimum pressure drop, permitting high vacuum operation up to 0.001 mbar.
It is distinguished from a standard Agitated Thin Film Evaporator by an internally mounted condenser. The vapor generated on the heated surface travels a very short distance to reach the condenser surface, thus eliminating pressure drop.
The condensed distillate and concentrate are collected separately in the bottom section before they are taken out.
'Operating vacuum as low as 0.001 mbar helps in distilling high boiling and heat sensitive products at lower temperatures'

FEATURES

  • Enhanced vacuum can lower boiling point by 100 to 150°C, as compared to ATFE
  • Excellent for gently processing heat sensitive, high boiling products
  • Residence time of a few seconds
  • Required distillation achieved in a single pass
  • Low product holdup
  • Excellent turndown capability
  • Operating temperatures up to 400oC

APPLICATIONS

High vacuum distillation of
  • Pharmaceuticals, bulk drugs, natural or synthetic vitamins, esters
  • Epoxy resins, plasticizers, and stabilizers
  • Fish oil, omega-3 fatty acids, fatty acid derivatives, glycerides, tocopherol and tocotrienols
  • Fine Chemicals, silicone oils, and higher alcohols
  • Re-refining of spent lube oil
  • Purification of natural and synthetic waxes
  • Product recovery from distillation column residues
