The PUREPATH Difference
There are a number of different distillation systems on the market. Cascade’s PUREPATH 100 has a few marked differences.
1) Temperature Delta Of Asahi Glass Helps Minimize Breakage
Truth is, glass breaks and the glassware associated with distillation systems is expensive to replace. The Asahi glass on the PUREPATH has a large 110C temperature delta. This means the Asahi glass on the PURE PATH can withstand the temperature shocks associated with rapid, hot to cold temperature changes that could occur with extreme temperature ranges.
2) Keep It Clean! The Vacuum Integrity Of The Asahi Glass Is Exceptional – Seals And Joints Do Not Require Grease
Many products manufactured in a distillation system are destined for human consumption. The PURE PATH seals and joints are super smooth, which not only means exceptional vacuum integrity, but that you won’t have to introduce grease into the system in order to maintain vacuum. Lesser quality glass will often slightly leak – reducing performance/output and increase labor efforts chasing down small vacuum leaks.
3) Go Deeper. The Vacuum Pumping System Is An Oil-Free Scroll Pump With High Vacuum Diffusion Pump
The vacuum system is a dual pump vacuum system (roughing pump + hi-vac diffusion pump) that pulls deep vacuum but does not pose the contamination risk associated with oil filled rotary vane pumps. The roughing pump is an oil-free scroll and the deeper vacuum pump is a diffusion pump. Both operate a lower decibel levels for less noisy operation. The exhaust is clean and smoke-less.
4) Rodaviss® Couplings For Easy, Safe Disconnect Of Receiving Flasks
Cascade’s PURE PATH minimizes another potential glass break point by utilizing Rodaviss couplings.
5) Professional on-site installation and training. Our installation and training crew is a team of technicians from Cascade Sciences, Ashai Glass and seasoned industry veterans.
Straight Talk About Thru-Put
There are so many variables that dictate the thru put of Cascade’s PUREPATH Distillation System. Crude oil will run through at different rates depending on the initial test numbers, but expect about 1 Liter > 2 Liters per hour.
To produce distillate, crude oil must typically must run through the system twice.
• 1st Run strips terpenes
• 2nd Run at THC vaporization point, deepest possible vacuum
