Short Path Distillation (SPD) Ready in 2014

Posted on Sep 19, 2013

POS has extensive experience with a bench scale SPD systems however our ability to offer commercial services has been limited. This hurdle will be overcome in January 2014.

The SPD technology involves the distillation of a substance in thin-film, liquid form under high vacuum and condensation of the resulting fractions. SPD equipment has several applications which include extracting oil from algae for bio-fuels to value added agri-food products. Commercial scale equipment is quite expensive because of the limited number of fabricators and each piece has been custom built based on POS specifications and the clients we serve.
