Short path distillation gets its name from the distance in which the vapor stream is condensed. In this case, the evaporator wall generates the vapors as the feed moves by gravity, while being agitated and distributed evenly into what is known as a thin film, down the evaporator wall. The vapor stream travels a “short path” directly to the condenser which is located within the evaporator chamber. Since the vapor stream is immediately condensed, the short path distillation process precludes the vapor from forming vapor pressure. The advantage is that the heating temperature can be considerably lower at reduced pressure than the boiling point of the liquid at standard pressure, and the distillate only has to travel a short distance before condensing. A short path ensures that little compound is lost on the sides of the apparatus.
