What are the methods of extracting essential oils?

The process of extracting essential oils by TOPTION this extraction equipment is steam distillation. Steam and oil and gas enter the condenser through the top outlet to condense. Because the relative density of essential oils is lighter than water, they will float on the water and be separated by this method.It can realize three distillation methods: water distillation, water distillation (water distillation), steam distillation.

1. Distillation in water is to put the raw materials into the water in the tank, the water height just over the material layer, so that it will be in direct contact with boiling water. It is suitable for some fresh flowers, broken peels and easy-to-bond raw materials, such as roses, orange blossoms, etc.

2. Up water distillation (material don't contect with water direstly )is also called water-repellent distillation. It has a wide range of applications, such as mint, lemongrass, and eucalyptus leaves.

3. Direct steam distillation, with fast speed, high temperature, can shorten the distillation time, high boiling point components can be steamed out, high oil yield.

Different distillation methods have different advantages and are suitable for different materials.
