Essential Oil Fractional Distillation

Purifying essential oils can be difficult. Individual contaminants can make essential oils less valuable by causing a bad smell or taste. Fractional distillation can be used to remove these contaminants and increase the value of the essential oil for use in flavors and fragrances

High Efficiency = High Purity: When distilling essential oils nothing is more important that getting high quality fractions. B/R fractional distillation apparatus have up to 200 theoretical plates at atmospheric pressure. Distillation columns can be stacked for even higher efficiencies. A high number of theoretical plates means the distillate will be high purity.

Customized for your Application: B/R fractional distillation systems can be configured according to the specific needs of essential oil purification. Automation, vacuum systems, fraction collectors and other accessories can be integrated into the distillation system as needed. The result is a fractional distillation apparatus customized to your specific needs.

Easy to use: Microprocessor control fully automates the distillation process from beginning to end, minimizing the time needed to operate the equipment. Easy programming of parameters makes you feel like a distillation expert. Heating, collecting of distillate and shut down of the equipment at completion are all done automatically. Manually operated equipment is also available for customers on a limited budget.

Common applications include:

  • Mint Oils
  • Clove Oils
  • Patchoili Oil
  • Tee Tree Oil
  • Alcoholic Beverage Investigation
  • Many Other Applications
