A supercritical closed loop industrial CO2 extraction machine is used to extract different molecules from botanicals using liquid or supercritical CO2. The use of CO2 means that typical solvents that might not only be dangerous to work with but also could affect the chemical composition of the oils you are extracting are no longer a concern. CO2 is a relatively inert, nonflammable gas and when pressure and temperature is applied to it, it will undergo a phase change to its liquid or supercritical form, resulting in an exceptionally efficient solvent for botanical extraction.
In our supercritical extraction equipment, the plant material is broken down at a molecular level by passing liquid or supercritical CO2 through a vessel with the plant materials. As the CO2 moves through the plant material, it strips the botanical of the desired extract. As the CO2 is returned to it gaseous state it undergoes the Venturi Effect, leaving you with shelf ready pure plant oils (terpenes, full spectrum, etc.).
This is the CDMH.200-2x-2f. This is the largest extractor in our lineup industrial CO2 extraction machines. It has a loading capacity of 200 LBS, a flow-rate of 42.2 KG/Min and has hydraulically driven enclosures for easy loading and unloading processes.
