The Fraction Finder helps make fractional distillation more successful by enabling you to consistently get the purest product possible.
The First of Its Kind
Unparalleled patent-pending scientific monitoring of a process that has never been seen like this before – that is what the Fraction Finder is all about. Through innovative live distillate monitoring, the Fraction Finder can help increase potency on every distillation pass. Now, you can forget the old ways of relying on experience, guesswork, and eyesight, and instead, identify the contents of a flow through a glass tube in real time.
How It Works
The Fraction Finder uses a spectrum of wavelengths over time to determine the relative purity of oils, such as botanical oils, flowing through a glass tube. The purpose of the Fraction Finder is to help processors improve the oil quality through in-situ monitoring of the refinement process.
Fraction Finder Explained
The Fraction Finder consists of a sensor and a display. The sensor contains an optical light pulse and a detector and wraps around a condenser column. The Fraction Finder sensor is connected to a pole mounted display unit that interprets the signal and displays optical information that is correlated to relative oil purity present in the flow. By using the Fraction Finder in tandem with existing laboratory techniques, processors can utilize additional information to make the decision as to when to change collection Flasks for the different fractions to be more optimally separated. The fractions are Heads, Bodies, and Tails, where the object of the short path distillation is to maximize the potency and purity of botanical distillate in the Main Body fraction collection. Furthermore, having this technique available paves the way for precision and repeatability of optimal techniques which will yield to a more consistent product over time.
