Pope Scientific offers Wiped-Film Still technology to separate heatsensitive citrus oils, flavors and related substances. With its short residence time, turbulent film mixing and high vacuum operation, the technology reportedly offers good yield and low degradation in molecular distillation or evaporation operations. The company also offers Hybrid Still systems that combine the evaporating principle of wiped thin films with the multiplate separation capability of fractional columns for better concentration and yield.
