TS-6
6″ Stainless Turnkey Thin Film Distillation Gen 3 ETL

Creating high quality hemp and cannabis distillate

Thin Film Distillation

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. The TS-6 from Ai is the mid-level stainless 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.

High Potency & Continuous Operation

In larger extraction labs where efficiency, repeatability and ease of use are critical, the TS-6 Wiped Film Distillation System is best suited for the job. This stainless steel system has gear pumps for material feed and discharge allowing it to operate in continuous mode. 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 inside a jacketed stainless steel evaporator provides efficient and even heat transfer resulting in a high-quality distillate.

Repeatable Results

In order to create clean, high-potency distillate for tinctures, oils, vape pens, pills, edibles and other high-value formulated products you must also produce consistent results. Afterall, product consistency is fundamental to building and maintaining any successful brand. To achieve this consistency, the TS-6 provides several adjustable parameters including the feed speed, heating temperature 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. Our tempered steel componentry on the TS-6 is extraordinary for the more experienced refining administrator and furthermore mitigates the danger of personal time because of broken glass.
