Our Value

We provide our customers with leading-edge technology and technical consulting.

Our machines are designed with the end user in mind. Each element of the machine is specifically engineered to maximize production.

Two Hour Run Times

With our Extrakt-1 machines in combination with our consultation, we create methods that allow users to process five and ten liter batches in two hours. The recovery rates are truly amazing.

Fast run times are the result of preparation, know-how, and great equipment. Our machines and consultants can help produce outstanding results.


Our Products

Extrakt-1 Super Critical CO2 Extraction Machines

When you purchase an Extrakt-1 machine you get the highest level of service in the industry. This includes:

  • factory acceptance and operational qualification
  • two days factory training (includes: method development, operations, and safety)
  • detailed documentation and user manuals
  • 1 year warranty.

Super critical CO2 extraction is recognized as the safest, cleanest, most efficient technology for extracting botanical oils and waxes. We take our super critical CO2 extraction to the next level.

Full automation means that you can run the same methods over and over again, repeatedly and reliably. Our modular design allows you to adjust tank sizes as you grow.

Our machines also include:

  • quick loading tanks
  • variable flow rate pumps
  • terpene recovery
  • co-solvent pumps
  • optional CO2 recirculation systems.

Our Extrakt machines use liquid CO2. There are no noisy compressors.

Our optional ethanol pump can be used to create a clean-in-place system requiring no disassembly during cleanings.

NOTE: The maximum daily output of our machines is dependent on the quantity and quality of raw product. As a result, achieving optimum outputs may require pumps with higher flow rates. We have the ability to engineer systems to meet high throughput needs.
