Our Wiped Film Molecular Stills (WFMS) are one of the versions of the family of Pope’s Wiped Film Stills (WFS). Another version is the Wiped Film Evaporator, (WFE), which is similar to a WFMS except that there is only an external condenser and no internal condenser. These operate at weaker vacuum levels and are primarily used for removing large percentages of solvent from less volatile components for example, removal of ethanol from cannabinoid after extraction or winterization. A WFE should be considered when production throughputs surpass what is appropriate for rotary evaporators.
Decarboxylation Reactors for converting cannabinoids from acid form to active form are available in any desired size. These include jacketed vessels with mixers, condensers, vacuum pumps, heating circulators and other items for turnkey operation. These are excellent for removing leftover ethanol from prior evaporation, gasses and the CO2 reaction byproduct, making distillation perform much better. Portability also allows use as transfer and feed vessels for distillation systems.
Crystallization Isolation Systems consisting of a crystallizing vessel and a nutsche filter-dryer vessel plus all components for turnkey operation are offered in any required sizes. These reactors and nutsches are also available separately. Pope also offers a wide range of custom stainless steel portable pressure vessels, reactors, mixers, dispensers and fully customized turnkey processing systems. Examples of the latter include synthetic cannabinoid reactor production systems.
