For best distillation rates:

The temperature difference between the vapor temperature and the cooling medium should be at 20 °C to result in sufficient condensation.
The temperature difference between the heating bath and vapor temperature should be at 20 °C to reach highest distillation rates.

Example:

Set a vacuum for a vapor temperature at 40 °C,
set the heating bath temperature at 60 °C,
set cooling medium to 20 °C.
