The fractional distillation will use a straight delivery tube to the receiver. In fractional distillation apparatus contains a column divided into plates (or something resembling plates) stacked one on top of another.
 
A simple distillation apparatus doesn't have that kind of column, because as you have found, it is not needed for components with widely different boiling points.
