CBD EXTRACTION / ETHANOL

Ethanol is a relatively common solvent for performing cannabis extractions. As a polar solvent, ethanol binds to water-soluble compounds within the plant material.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF STEPS INVOLVED

PRE-PROCESSING

Typically milled with high shear, or whole pieces; pack material bags, weigh, log in inventory, que into storage freezer.

INITIAL EXTRACTION

Transfer of chilled or room temperature solvent takes place, flooding of the separation apparatus occurs, which then also provides bi-directional agitation during the soaking period.

FILTRATION

Based off how efficiently cooled the solvent was during the extraction process and measure of time exposed; the filtration process maybe supplimentary or required. Speak with us today and determine which process works best for your unique requirements.

SOLVENT RECOVERY

Utilizing highly efficient proprietary technologies, we provide our customers with Industry leading solvent recovery times, ask us how you can get there too!

POST-PROCESSING

Collected crude will under go Decarboxylation, followed by Distillation, and then likely post-processed into CBD Isolate via pressure and reaction vessels.

MEP-XT70

CX-70 Ethanol Centrifuge

The CX-70 Ethanol Extraction Centrifuge from Heinkel can process up to 70lbs of biomass per batch and can handle temperatures down to -40°C. Batch times are approximately 20 minutes, so you can effectively process up to 210 lbs/hr. using the CX-70.

Heinkel has decades of experience in the Pharmaceutical Industry, and this knowledge has allowed them to design and build the most reliable extraction systems on the market. The CX-70 stands out from its competitors with its superior safety, easy loading and unloading, and top quality design and construction.

inverting filter centrifuge

HEINKEL® has developed a fully automated centrifuge system (Patent Pending) for ethanol extraction of botanicals for high volume production (up to 1400 lbs/hr). This closed centrifuge system safely delivers high quality extraction and recovers a maximum percentage of ethanol. The centrifuge discharges the solids biomass material virtually free of ethanol vapors.

  • 97% alcohol removal
  • -40 °C operation
  • 10 min batch time, 6 batches/hour

The inverting filter centrifuge from Heinkel is CGMP compliant. With its gentle product discharge, the unit leaves no residual heel. This allows the possibility of thin-cake filtration.
