STEAM DISTILLATION KIT The perfect system for making your own STEAM DISTILLED essential oils!
This is a true vertical steam distillation unit made from scientific-grade borosilicate glass, specifically designed for easy steam extraction of essential oils from plant materials by the non-chemist at home, resulting in the highest purity essential oilsUnlike other steam distillation units on the market, this system offers true "dry steam" distillation in an all glass (Pyrex) system. Coupled together with ground glass joints, there are no hoses or rubber stoppers in contact with your product...it's ALL glass!
This system's underlying design addresses a number of problems associated with competitives stills, Because of it's "vertical" design, the biomass flask stays dry, none of the "boiling water" is wastefully condensed and trapped in the biomass flask, and because it uses separate flasks for boiling and biomass, there's no risk of overheating or possibly burning your plant material. Our UNIQUELY DESIGNED RECEIVER (click for info) traps up to 20mL of either "heavier than water" oils or "lighter than water" oils while automatically draining away the excess condensed water (the "Hydrosol", that can be kept for many purposes) thus allowing you to start the distillation and let it proceed on it's own without constant need of attention.When the distillation is complete, the receiver then doubles as a tapered separatory funnel, allowing you to easily separate your prized oil from the remaining water.

Here's a link to the instructions for this kit,
along with loads of photos and setup possibilites...
HERE'S WHAT'S IN THE KIT:
* New heavy duty hotplate with built-in flask support rod (for EUROPE we make this in 240 volt at no extra cost to you)
ALL NEW PYREX (Borosilicate) GLASSWARE:
* 2 liter boiling flask, 24/40 sized ground glass joint
* 2 liter Biomass flask, 24/40 joint on bottom and large 45/50 (almost 2" ID!) joint on top for easy loading/ unloading of biomass
* Still Head with 45/50 and male spherical condenser joints (thermometer adapter port is an option, can be purchased after sale)
* West Condenser, with a spherical joint that allows a wide range of alignment without risk of breakage or loss of seal integrety
* 24/40 Receiver/separatory funnel with teflon valve
* Two laboratory Clamps
* Two 5 foot HOSES for condenser water
* 3 pouches of joint grease and a vial of boiling stones
* Keck Clamps to hold condenser, still head, and receiver together
* Rubber faucet adapter to help you interface your sink faucet to the condenser hose
* Simple assembly and operation instructions (printed) are included, and instructions with color photos are provided on our website, heartmagic.com, onlineBasically everything you need to open the box, harvest your herb garden, and make high purity Essential Oils! OPTIONAL COMPONENTS AVAILABLE:
* Submersible Water PUMP for recirculating cooling water ( USA Only, not available in 240 volt )
* 5 liter bioflask
* Adapter kit that enable this kit to do other related essential oil operations such as hydrodistillation, solvent extractions, solvent purification and recovery, and tincture concentration
These are available on request at additional charge, but only after the sale is over and the transaction has been completed. There is no "Choice" of flask size or additional components in this sale. (This having been said to comply with 's rules) Here's some practical considerations of other units on the market and this system Problem:
Lots of water always condenses in the biomass flask- it's unavoidable, and it accumulates and eventually covers up a lot of the plant material I'm trying to distill.
In this vertical system, that water simply drips back down into the boiling flask to be reused, instead of accumulating in the biomass flask being wasted and causing plant material to become flooded and no longer in contact with steam.
This system's vertical design insures that the biomass stays dry.
I have to constantly add water to the steam generator flask
Because the water condensed in the biomass flask is returned to the boiling flask, this system can go for three hours or more without having to add new water to the boiling pot.
There's a ground glass stopper in the side of the boiling flask to make water addition very easy, in case you need to.
The distiller takes up the whole room, it's so big and spread out
This system's vertical design is very compact and doesn't take up the whole kitchen sink!!
Uncondensed steam occasionally comes out of the end of the condenser...isn't this potentially loosing precious oil?
Unlike systems with vertical "up-going" or traditional 105 degree angled condensers from which uncondensed steam can often escape, this system has a vertical "down-going" condenser in which the steam is forced straight down. This insures excellent agitation of the vapors and complete condensation, with no chance of steam or product escaping, even when using room-temperature tap water for cooling instead of ice water and a pump, which is often recommended in other systems
Here's a photo of the system set up and ready to distill some freshly picked ROSEMARY
The yield in this setup was aprox. 3mL (3/4 of a dram) Here's some oils I've recently distilled with an identical kit,
from herbs and things in our garden
These vials are the result of ONE distillation of the herb,
ie we packed the bioflask full and this is what we were rewarded with!
The quantities vary with the actual type of herb,
when it's picked, where it lives, etc,
but this is a good representation of what you can expect!
Here's the receiver in operation- note the oil layer
Here's all the individual parts:

not in this photo)
Here's a diagram of it
and here's how the receiver works:
