For the experienced oil producer, short path distillation equipment offers a shortcut to added purity. After you extract the oil and remove the contaminants, you will be on the road to pure (or nearly pure) oil. Some short path distillation setups advertise purity levels as high as 96 percent, although that will vary depending on the original quality of the plant and the number of times you run it through the system. There are plenty of options when investing in your first short path distillation system, so be sure to take a look and decide what makes sense for your skill level. Many systems are essentially do-it-yourself and can be up and running on the same day as delivery.
