This isn’t possible as the CO2 will become saturated and significantly reduce extraction efficiencies.
This isn’t possible as the expansion chambers are used as separation vessels and can only be used independently to separate different compounds.
We recommend changing both every run. Replace gaskets each time a section has been opened. If the seals are not damaged, once removed they can be left out to off-gas and then reused later.
Yes, otherwise you will extract waxes, etc., from the spent material
Yes, but you must have the correct chiller for the climate. Please contact your IES project manager for verification and assistance.
This isn’t possible as the hydraulic power unit must be located in a consistent room temperature.
This isn’t possible as the extractor must be located in a consistent room temperature environment.
This isn’t possbile as in cold environments it can cause dry ice or liquid CO2 from phase change as the system tries to pull gas from the manifold, resulting in long charge times.
This isn’t possible as CO2 must be in a gas phase otherwise it will diminish and eventually destroy the internals of the booster pump.
Yes, and we also recommend hose protection to mitigate wearing the lines.
Yes, but it isn’t recommended as the hydraulic lines have shock in them when the system pumps. Also, please ensure lines are secured and wrapped with hose guard.
This isn’t possible as the biomass bags will not withstand the pressures needed to decarboxylate.
R.O. or distilled water.
BioFlo FG 32/46 (Biodegradable Food Grade hydraulic fluid, ISO 32).
Remove the old PTFE tape from the fitting. Replace with new PTFE tape and wrap three times around the fitting. Replace the fitting and tighten.
Remove fitting and cover with anti-seize, then replace fitting and tighten.
Tighten fitting until leak stops. User may need to back the fitting off slightly and then retighten so that the ferrule sits correctly on the tube.
Replace with a new seal. Seals that are pinched or torn should be thrown away and never reused.
