Continuous distillation, a form of distillation, is an ongoing separation in which a mixture is continuously (without interruption) fed into the process and separated fractions are removed continuously as output streams. Distillation is the separation or partial separation of a liquid feed mixture into components or fractions by selective boiling (or evaporation) and condensation. The process produces at least two output fractions. These fractions include at least one volatile distillate fraction, which has boiled and been separately captured as a vapor condensed to a liquid, and practically always a bottoms (or residuum) fraction, which is the least volatile residue that has not been separately captured as a condensed vapor.


  • High precision PTFE rollers and inner stainless steel surface allow a complete and uniform thin film on the heated surface and leave minimum process residue
  • Pre-installed cooling/heating tubing with fluid direction labels and M16 ports
  • Driving motor with magnetic coupling sealing ensures high vacuum level
  • Constructed with stainless steel and Viton gaskets for ultimate corrosion resistance
  • Auto delay safety circuit for diffusion pump cooling
  • Heavy duty stainless steel frame with station-able casters for mobility and stability
  • Newly redesigned drain port with dual sight glass for easy cleaning and maintenance.
  • Ai on-site installation within contiguous US included
  • Optional Turbo pump with fittings
  • Liquid Nitrogen (in cold trap) is highly recommended for system to get to optimal vacuum levels
  • UL/CSA certified


  • 1-2 day class on Ai Thin Film Distillation Systems, including setup, operation, cleaning and maintenance.
  • Class is private with five students limit.
  • Student requirements should be presented to Ai prior to arrival. Courses can be customized to meet your extraction goals, allowing you to optimize your time and output.
  • Students are responsible for their own accommodations.


  • Never fill circulated heaters or chillers with water, always use Ai or manufacturer's recommended fluid
  • Always leave ample fluid space in heater reservoir to allow fluid heat expansion
  • Always keep system vacuum passage or drain valve open when heating up circulation jackets
  • Always make sure your vacuum pumps and diffusion pump fluid is clean and within limits
