The concept of two passes for the #distillation of #cannabinoids is understood by many; one pass for devolatilizing or ridding the feed material of gasses, ethanol, water, light terpene ends, etc., so that the next, cannabinoid distillation pass can be performed with greater vacuum, throughput, purity, yield, and product clarity.⁠

➡️ So why four passes? To accommodate the widest ranges in starting materials, extraction methods and other pre-distillation steps, and optimization of throughput and choices of finished products.⁠

Did you know Pope has been manufacturing vessels for #Decarboxylation (among other things) for years? 😎 Pope Scientific manufactures #ASME code vessels and turnkey systems that can be utilized for this process at all scales and sizes. Adding portability to these vessels/systems is beneficial to allowing them to be repurposed as receiver vessels from solvent recovery and feed vessels for distillation systems.⁠

⚗️Pope Scientific manufactures Wiped Film Stills in both 316L stainless steel and borosilicate glass. When selecting a still system for purchase, materials of construction matter just as much as size and other features. ⚗️⁠

Both have their benefits, but how do you know which one is right for you?⁠
