The portion of the feedstock which is not vaporized from the still rotor, but remains liquid after passing over the rotor, and is collected in the residue gutter.
The portion of the feed material which is vaporized from the still rotor and is condensed back to liquid.
The process of separating a component or substances from a liquid by selective evaporation and condensation. Distillation may result in a partial separation that increases the concentration of selected components of the mixture.
How vacuum components are located and type used to pump and measure a chamber
A chamber that prepares material by removing a portion that will evaporate at room or low temperatures when subjected to a vacuum environment and is often used to preheat material before molecular distillation.
Method where the temperature is constantly measured and output signal sent to control process to maintain a constant temperature
The pressure (Vacuum in Torr, Barr or other vacuum measurement units) that the chamber is maintained at during distillation.
A pressure unit. One Torr equals 1 mm Hg — 1 millitorr equals one micron Hg.
The time that a product is in contact with heated surface
The average time material spends in a given location, in molecular distillation this is most often referred to as the time on heated surface.
