What is a Continuous Solution & Why Should I Care?

This continuous solution makes the extraction through distillation process more hands-off and automated than ever before. By connecting our CO2 extractors, a special interface skid, a customized dual-stage wiped film distillation unit,  and adding a little bit of technical magic methods, you are able to run from start to finish without having to remove oils or extracts from the system. This removes 5+ touch points and eliminates ethanol usage in a traditional CO2 extraction process which ultimately cuts down on time, energy, and labor costs.

Steps Needed for Traditional Extraction

traditional steps extraction to distillation

#1 Extraction

Low cost and clean CO2 extraction to get crude oil.

#2 Winterization

Crude oil from extraction needs to be winterized to separate fats, waxes & oils. This process involves food grade ethanol.

#3 Filtration

Filter out the separated fats and waxes with a DrainDroyd or buchner funnel.

#4 Evaporation

The ethanol used for winterization is removed through evaporation.

#5 Distillation

Oil needs to be distilled to remove impurities and get your distillate oil.

plus 3+ Testing Points

This process has at least 3 testing points as well as multiple touch points to move the product from machine to machine. It works very well… but it can be better.

Steps Needed for the Continuous Solution

continuous solution automation

1. Extraction:
Extract your biomass using clean, inexpensive and organic CO2 to get your crude oil.

2. Distillation:
Distill the oil using our dual-stage wiped film evaporator to double throughput and labor over any single stage equipment.

3. Test The Distillate:
It’s always important to test in any extraction process. There are minimal test points in this solution since it is a contained system.
