Fraction Finder



The Fraction Finder is essential for getting the purest possible product in fractional distillation.

Increase your potency on each distillation pass, with this unique approach to real-time distillate monitoring.


Attach the Fraction Finder’s included sensor to your condenser, glassware, or system sight glass, and it will relay information about the contents of your fraction/solution to the real-time display.

With its unique approach to real-time distillate & extraction monitoring, the Fraction Finder can increase your potency on each distillation pass or extraction.

Forget the old ways of relying on experience, guesswork, and eyesight alone – now you can accurately identify the contents flowing through a glass tube in real-time.

Determine purity with a spectrum of wavelengths.

The Fraction Finder uses a spectrum of wavelengths over time to determine the relative purity of oils flowing through a glass condenser or sight glass.

This product was designed to help processors improve their oil quality through in-situ monitoring of the short path distillation process.

The included sensor attaches directly to your condenser or sight glass.

The main components of the Fraction Finder are a sensor (attached to your glassware or sight glass) and a high-quality display.

The sensor contains an optical light pulse (and a detector) and wraps snugly around your condenser/sight glass column.

Mounted directly to the condenser, the sensor interprets the incoming signal and displays optical information that is correlated to the product present inside the condenser or sight glass.

Make smarter decisions based on data.

By using the Fraction Finder in tandem with existing laboratory & processing techniques, you’ll have a wealth of additional information on which to base decisions.

For example, the data will tell you when to change your collection flasks so that the different fractions are more optimally separated.

What types of fractions are there?

The main fractions are “heads”, “bodies”, and “tails” (for distillation only). Generally speaking, the object of short path distillation is to maximize the potency and purity of your product in the body fraction collection.

The object of extraction is to maximize the amount of extracted compounds within a given plant material.

These techniques pave the way for precision and repeatability, which will yield a more consistent product over time.
