This study aims to design a piece of distillation equipment, with greater efficiency and
extraction capacity. Currently, there are steam distillation machines, most of these equipment
has the capacity to distill between 1 to 100 kilograms of material. In the present design, a linear
vapor trace distillation is applied, with a capacity to distill 200 kilograms of schinus "molle"; on
the other hand, the equipment will have connection to a mobile phone through Arduino, from
which it will be possible to make emergency stops. This research was obtained through
calculations showing that 1.89 liters of essential oil can be extracted from every 200 kilograms
of molle. Finally, it is concluded that the current still is theoretically more efficient, extracting
much more oil than the other still. Also, it has the capacity to distill all those roots, stems, leaves,
flowers, and seeds that have an essence.
