Lab Society has produced multiple dual-headed distillation systems over the past several years.
Through this process, a variety of changes and improvements were necessary to continue to build larger systems with exceptional throughputs.
Our brand new 20L dual-head system has taken into account these improvements and is here to up your lab’s capability.
Up to 10-12 kg. of product per batch.
The 20L boiling flask holds up to 12L (10-12kg) of product per batch; This increase in surface area and volume (in addition to the new PDH-3V silvered distillation head with 40mm bore size) gives the 20L the power to output 1-2L per hour during the main body fraction.
Dual-headed distillation, double the output.
With two (2) distillation heads running simultaneously, the 20L has the ability to do 2-4L per hour output (and even more!) depending on runtime parameters.
Surprisingly small footprint.
We’ve managed to achieve significant upgrades in both output and efficiency while decreasing the total size of this kit. The result is the most powerful kit per square foot we’ve ever produced.
Prior dual-headed systems (5L and 12L legacy kits) took up excessive bench space and required significant lengths of tubing/hose to connect both sides. As a result, a variety of issues presented themselves.
Greater efficiency, simplified design.
Here are some common issues with other large-format distillation kits:
- build up of residue in tubing (causing flow issues and drops in efficiency)
- one head running faster than the other (due to variable lengths in tubing)
- and unequal heating of the heads (due to the top mantle having a seam at one of the distillation heads)
