A closed loop supercritical CO2 extractor is used to extract different molecules from botanicals using liquid or supercritical CO2. The use of CO2 means that typical solvents that could be dangerous to work with and could also 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, will undergo a phase change to its liquid or supercritical form, resulting in an exceptionally efficient solvent for botanical extraction. This is a fantastic small supercritical CO2 extraction machine ideal for various applications.
The plant material is broken down at a molecular level by passing liquid or supercritical CO2 through a vessel with the plant materials within the distillate machine. 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.).
The CDMH.10-2X-2F botanical extractor machine features two 10-liter solvent chambers, a loading capacity of 10lbs and double fraction expansion chambers. With a flow rate of 2.6kg/min and easy open clam shell enclosures, you can expect industry-leading run-times and easy loading and unloading processes. The CDMH.10-2X-2F is the second largest supercritical CO2 extractor in our commercial series and is perfect for a wide range of processing needs.
