Fractional Distillation Apparatus wood print by Martyn F. Chillmaid/science Photo Library. Bring your artwork to life with the texture and added depth of a wood print. Your image gets printed directly onto a sheet of 3/4" thick maple wood. There are D-clips on the back of the print for mounting it to your wall using mounting hooks and nails (included).

Fractional distillation. Fractional distillation using a Liebig condenser (diagonal, centre) to separate a liquid into its component parts. Each component of the liquid has a different boiling point. The heating mantle (bottom left) heats the mixture in the bulb flask. By altering the temperature of the flask to match the boiling point of one of the components, that liquid can be boiled off and will rise up the fractionating column (vertical, left) as a gas. It enters the condenser where cold water circulating in an outer chamber cools the gas, causing it to condense and run into the bulb flask (right) where it is collected. The glass beads in the column cause the other components, which have lower boiling points, to condense before they reach the top.
