Ready for some science? 🥽 👩‍🔬👨‍🔬⁠
Wiped-Film still technology takes advantage of the fact that each #chemical substance has a characteristic #vapor pressure. It is this relative difference in vapor pressures that dictates how easily a complex compound can be separated into its constituent components.⁠

Since the molecules of all matter are in constant motion in varying degrees, depending upon the chemical composition of that matter and the temperature and pressure applied to it, molecules near the surface have a tendency to escape into the surrounding atmosphere. As 🌡️ temperature increases and pressure decreases, this escaping tendency usually increases and the substance is said to vaporize. ⁠

The force generated by these escaping molecules is referred to as the vapor pressure of that material at a particular temperature and pressure. It is the relative difference in vapor pressure of substances that dictates how easily a complex compound can be separated into its constituent compounds.⁠

Nothing makes us happier than a happy customer. ⁠
Repost from @icbdextract: @popescientificinc 2-Stage Wiped-Film Molecular Still is the best in the business. Short residence time of the feed liquid, significantly lowered temperature due to high vacuum capability, and high efficiency in mass and heat transfer. Great quality components and easy quality control during our process allows for the best results and highest performance for distillate production.⁠

Did you know👉 in addition to manufacturing #distillation equipment (and any other processing equipment lines) Pope also manufactures lab grade dewars? Dewars are used for handling #cryogenic materials like liquid nitrogen. This picture shows some freshly silvered glass dewars in production.
