Extraction & Recovery System
The ERS is an Expandable Extraction System.
Two Modes of Operation
The 5 or 10 lb columns are packed and extracted via a vacuum flushing system. Alcohol is pulled from the alcohol reservoir and flushed through the herb for 10-15 minutes. Once the flush is complete the resulting tincture is now ready for recovery.
With the turn of a few valves, the tincture is injected and sprayed inside a heated column. This employs thin layer evaporation technology to increase surface area, thus increasing solvent recovery. The extract is quickly evaporated as it flows down into the extract vessel. The evaporated alcohol is simultaneously condensed into the recovery vessel. The system can recover approx. 2.5 gallons of extract per hour. During this time, other herb columns can be packed and mounted.
Once the tincture is sprayed into the system it will continue to purge. The system can then be switched over to Extraction Mode to extract the next batch. The system is switched between these two modes to extract 3-4 runs a day.
Things to think about:
10lb Columns usually fit 7lbs of ground up Hemp Flower
Approx. 1 gallon is lost per 10lb column
The larger the heating and cooling systems are, the faster the unit can run. (3000 watts of heating and cooling power are recommended - 6000 watts total)
Capacity: Base unit (5lb or 10lb Columns)
Upgradable to larger capacities
$800/10lb column upgrade
30lb Unit will need upgraded capacities
Run Time: 45-75 Minutes Depending On Flow Rate
Recommended Vacuum: -25 in Hg
Solvent Capacity: 5 Gallons
Requires Water Cooling System and Water Heating System
Please allow up to 2-3 weeks of lead time before shipment.
