Short path distillation is often used for compounds which are unstable at high temperatures. It may also be used to purify and refine small amounts of material. We offer high quality short path systems, replacement parts, and complete turnkey kits that are ready for immediate use.
The heating temperature can be considerably lower (at reduced pressure) than the boiling point of the liquid at standard pressure, making it easier to fraction the material. Because the distillate only has to travel a short distance before condensing, only a very minimal amount of material is lost on the sides of the apparatus. Each piece of glass is made of extra thick high borosilicate glass 3.3, which is corrosion resistant.
