Lab Society G2 Executive Short Path Distillation Kit (2L)

The two-liter (2L) Lab Society Executive Series Short Path Distillation unit is the most comprehensive and integrated benchtop-scale short path distillation kit on the market.  This complete turn-key system includes all stands, clamps, hoses, connectors, and accessories necessary to perform distillations efficiently and with ease.  Lab Society’s patent pending glassware designs are built to simplify the distillation of higher boiling point compounds.  The short path distillation system also includes material transfer tools, cleaning tools, and extra setup parts to allow the user to configure the system to fit their laboratory’s needs.

In addition to ease of access, the 2L short path distillation kit also utilizes a J-KEM temperature controller for process control.  This unit is compatible with J-KEM’s KEM-Net freeware (download link which allows the user to easily control the unit from a windows-based PC while utilizing data logging, ramping programs, and/or I/O alarms.  When paired with the 2L LS Vapor Temperature Monitoring Kit, the user can utilize real-time graphing/logging of both of the distillation heads and the boiling material temperature on the same screen and graph.  Not only does this allow for future automation and programming of temperature ramps, but also eases the use of the 2L short path distillation unit.

System Requirements


Pair with: 1400B-01, 2070B-01, 3041-01, 3061-01, 3081-01

Min. Ultimate Pressure: 150 micron/mTorr

Free Air Displacement: Min. 0.9 cfm, Max. 5 cfmModified configurations may utilize 5-12 cfm (utilize at own risk; we are not liable if issues/damages occur)


Pair with: LS-CTK-C, T40, T80

Manual: Dry ice with isopropanol or acetone; immersion or Dewar style
