Short Path Distillation is designed according to the principle of molecular distillation. It is a model of Simulated molecular distillation. It is called short path distillation because the distance between the heating surface and the cooling surface is very close and the resistance is very small. Built-in condenser, the vaporized vapour phase is liquefied instantly and the volume is contracted, so that the high vacuum inside the equipment can be maintained. The operation vacuum of short path distillation can reach 1Pa, which is difficult to achieve for other evaporation and distillation equipments. Therefore, short path distillation is especially suitable for high boiling-point materials which are difficult to be separated with common separation methods under normal pressure.
Short Path Distillation Equipment is a distillation technique that involves the distillate traveling a short distance, often only a few centimeters, and is generally done at reduced pressure. A classic example would be a distillation involving the distillate traveling from one glass bulb to another, without the need for a condenser separating the two chambers. This technique is often used for compounds which are unstable at high temperatures or to purify small amounts of compound. 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.
