Ai Vacuum has just released two new straight heads for their short path distillation kits, one for the 2-liter system and another for the 5-liter kit. These offer several advantages over your typical head.

Short path distillation is a popular process in the cannabis industry for refining crude cannabis oil and creating distillate. It uses heat and vacuum to vaporize terpenes and cannabinoids, which are then condensed in a receiving vessel, either for reclamation or disposal. While the cannabis oil collected in the receiving flask is golden and clear, the dark liquid leftover can be discarded. Usually, processors put it through two passes before the distillate is at the desired quality.

From the boiling flask, the vapors travel into the distillation head, where they are condensed and directed toward the receiving flask. Now, Ai Vacuum has just released two new straight heads for their short path distillation kits. One is for the 2-liter short path system. The other is for the 5-liter kit. These heads are 75% more efficient than their predecessors. Those with a bend take much more time to move distillate. With a straight head, the process is much faster.

These new straight heads have a bigger bore. The previous heads were 10mm in diameter, while the new heads are 15mm in diameter. Giving the distillate more room allows it to travel more quickly through the system. So how did we come to develop such a head? We base all our equipment designs and upgrades on customer feedback. Operators know what they need best, and our job is to accommodate them.

As with our other variety, these straight heads are made of durable, heavy wall, high borosilicate glass 3.3. This is the most heat, cold, and corrosive-resistant type around. These heads have a large vacuum jacket too, to retain more heat during the distillation process. Another interesting feature, its finely ground joints allow for a higher ultimate vacuum level. Each head comes with a boiling flask port 34/45, a distribution port 24/40 joint, and a thermo probe port 14/20. It also has a recirculating fluid port GL-16. In addition, these heads come with five sets of vigreux. Straight short path heads are just another innovation, brought to you by Ai Vacuum.
