For Cannabinoid processing, including cannabis and hemp oil distillation and terpenes recovery after extraction, Pope Scientific’s Wiped-Film Short Path Molecular Stills are recognized as the premier machines in the marijuana industry. We have led the way worldwide in high vacuum molecular distillation and wiped film evaporation equipment, technology and processing services since 1975. Final purifications of THC and CBD to the highest levels of purity, quality, clarity, yield, and product value are readily performed on Pope equipment.
Scalable from 100 Milliliters/day up to 100 Kilograms/hour
Pope Scientific engineers and manufactures an all-encompassing range of distillation equipment sizes—from small lab duty up to large industrial production units. Our multistage, stainless steel, fully turnkey skid-mounted systems serve major cannabis production installations requiring capacities anywhere from 10 kg/hr up to 100 kg/hr.
Our classic 2″ Wiped-Film Stills [WFE] are found in hundreds of industrial and academic labs, and now have become the most popular post-extraction purification system for startup cannabinoid processing companies. They are typically used to distill from 100 ml/day up to 2 liters/day. Our larger standard glass 4″ and 6″ models are being utilized for greater throughputs and are available for up to 5 and 10 liters/day.
Excellent results are produced, independent of the extraction method used, and whether or not winterization and/or decarboxylation have been performed. Distillate product is optically clear light yellow, separated away from dark residue, chlorophyll, heavy waxes, sugars and salts. THC distillation and CBD distillation produce high value clear shatter or dab, and fine oils for vape and edibles. Terpenes isolation and collection is also possible. All Pope Scientific equipment is proudly made in the USA.
