Wiped Film Molecular Distillation System for plant-based biomass


Molecular distillation is a special liquid-liquid separation technology, which is different from the traditional distillation by boiling point difference separation principle, but by different substances molecular movement of the average free path difference to achieve separation. Molecular distillation is considered as the safest mode of separation and to purify the thermally unstable molecules and related compounds with low volatility and elevated boiling point.

The process distinguishes the short residence time in the zone of the molecular evaporator exposed to heat and low operating temperature due to vacuum in the space of distillation.


  • Molecular distillation is applied for separation of high boiling point, heat-sensitive and readily oxidization materials.


BioXtra’s wiped film distillation technology delivers greater consistency, higher purity and yields in every plant oil distillation. 


Key Features

  • High-precision evaporation barrel allows the liquid to form a complete and unified thin film on the heated surface, and prevent process residue.

  • High borosilicate glass 3.3, stainless steel and viton gaskets for ultimate corrosion resistance.

  • Molecular distillation process can be well observed through the transparent glass system.

  • Durable stainless steel construction enhances heat transfer capacity and high evaporation efficiency.

  • The magnetic force transmission system guarantees the sealing of the whole vacuum system. 

  • Gear pumps for continuous process.

  • Heavy duty stainless steel frame with stationable casters for mobility and stability.

  • G60M is the best replacement for Short Path Distillation.
