TG-6
6″ Glass Turnkey Thin Film Distillation System ETL

Creating high quality hemp and cannabis distillate

Thin Film Distillation

Thin film distillation was developed to provide low evaporation temperatures, low vacuum and thus minimize residence time in the evaporator. The TG-6 from Ai is the mid-level glass distillation system for creating high quality hemp and cannabis distillate. It utilizes an advanced thin-film technique, allowing for higher efficiency and lower temperatures during the distillation process as compared to standard short path distillation.

The Best Cannabis Distillate Requires the Best Distillation Equipment

Efficiency & High Potency

The TG-6 Wiped Film Distillation System is well suited for larger extraction labs where efficiency, repeatability and ease of use are critical. While optimizing operation, the TG-6 is also capable of taking your crude oil THC and CBD concentrations to over 90%. The thin film technique employed by the rotating wipers provides efficient and even heat transfer resulting in a high-quality distillate.

Repeatable Results

Creating high-potency, clean distillate for oils, tinctures, pills, vape pens, edibles and other high-value formulated products also requires you to produce consistent results. After all, product consistency is fundamental to building and maintaining any successful brand. In order to achieve this consistency, the TG-6 provides several adjustable parameters including the heating temperature, feed speed and vacuum level, so you can optimize the distillation process for your quality of crude oil.

Easy To Use

In addition to utilizing their material processing expertise and operator feedback, our designers and engineers have developed a system that not only performs well but is also intuitive and ergonomic for ease of use. Using the system you can load crude oil into a material flask at an acceptable height, monitor any system-related information on a clear digital display, and follow the easy-to-follow cleaning procedure. The glass componentry on the TG-6 can be especially effective on improving quality and save process time.
