The glass funnel for essential oil separation.
The funnel volume is 250 ml.
Serves for separation of essential oils from the water.
During the distillation process the hot water and the vapor are breaking the plant and the plant essence is released as a vapor. Light fractions are rising up into the column and all heavy fractions are flowing down. The essence vapor with the water vapor is rising up into the column, passing through the stills parts and eventually enters the cooling tank where again becomes liquids and merges into the prepared container for distillate. The water vapor turns into the water distillate and the essence vapor turns into the essential oil. As the oil is lighter the water it is collected at the surface of substance and it can be easily separated from the water distillate. For easy essential oil separation you can use special instruments such as a glass funnel.
