Pope Scientific’s Wiped-Film Short Path Molecular Stills are recognized as the premier machines in the marijuana industry for cannabis distillation, including hemp oil distillation and terpene recovery after extraction. We have led the way worldwide in high-vacuum molecular distillation and wiped-film evaporation equipment, technology, and processing services since 1975. Final purification of THC and CBD to the highest levels of quality, clarity, yield, and product value are readily performed on Pope equipment.
Scalable from 100 Milliliters/day up to 100 Kilograms/hour
We engineer and manufacture 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.
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, and 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.
Our classic 2″ Wiped-Film Evaporators [WFE] are found in hundreds of industrial and academic labs, and now have become the most popular post-extraction distillation system for startup cannabinoid processing companies. These systems 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 throughput and are available for up to 5 and 10 liters/day. All Pope Scientific equipment is proudly made in the USA.
