CannaBeast® Thin Film Distillation Systems

Contact Us for Pricing


We’ve partnered with InCon Process Systems (IPS) to bring you the most comprehensive, USA-made, stainless steel short path thin film continuous distillation systems on the market today.

Integrated with EliteLab Core v2 Control Interface. Various HMI options give users precise control over all system parameters with the ability to save custom presets/recipes for repeatability and ease of use.


InCon has over 25 years of high-vacuum distillation technology experience.

They’ve designed, built, and operated some of the world’s largest distillation plants, working with hundreds of different compounds. InCon’s experience and knowledge ranges from highly specialized fractional distillation plants (and lab-scale precision systems) to 50m², industrial-scale distillation plants.

Their expertise and experience has set them apart in the short path and thin film distillation markets. Our partnership has allowed us to take true industrial manufacturing experience and scale it down for smaller sectors, with a focus on automation, reliability, and achieving 24/7 manufacturing capabilities.

System Advantages Summary

Single Stage Units:
Utilizing a single stage distillation unit requires multiple passes through the unit to achieve sellable product. Each pass through the machine requires different operational parameters including temperature, pressure, and speed. The dual-pump manifold gives users the ability to run volatile and/or heads stripping passes with a dry vacuum pump coupled with a pressure controller. This provides the ability to set precise pressures alongside temperatures to make stripping passes optimal and most effective.

After the feed product has been thoroughly stripped and prepped for final, heavy compound distillation, users can clean the system and then utilize the rotary vane pump assembly to reach high vacuum levels effectively without disassembly of the unit. This greatly improves the operational simplicity of the units as well as flexibility to perform various distillation types within one machine.

2-Stage Advantage:

Having multiple stages reduces the need for multiple passes when material is properly prepared for the system by utilizing two (2) stages of short path distillation; thus, continuously collecting two (2) distillate fractions and one (1) residue fraction. The first stage is run at higher pressure (low to medium vacuum) and lower temperature to gently or aggressively remove low to medium boiling point compounds. The second stage is run at high vacuum and higher temperature to achieve proper separation of compounds.
