Description

It takes 20 minutes to distill 500g of winterized oil. You can keep adding more and run as long as you want. You never have to reduce vacuum to add more oil. It's constantly being pumped in. The distillate does not collect in a round bottom. It's constantly pouring out the nozzle into a beaker. The short path systems you see most people use, have a distillation path as long as 12-16". This one has a distillation path of 5cm. The oil is constantly fed into the system and is spread into a thin film wirh the rotating brush on the hidolph motor. The cheap systems with a round bottom reaction flask in a mantle, have to get the oil way hotter than this system gets it for 2 reasons. 1 thr vapor has to travel all the way to the condenser. 2 the oil is pooled. With this system the oil never pools and doesn't have to get hot enough to send vapor all the way through a short path head. No tunalene or burntrubbernene
