DrainDroyd filtration equipment makes high-throughput wax removal from winterized ethanol solutions possible. When you choose DrainDroyd, you can eliminate hours and hours of labor as well as potential batch contamination. Our filtration equipment also reduces the number of steps in your overall process and leads to the production of higher quality extracts.
Applications are only limited by your imagination! Convert your DrainDroyd into a french press with the sealed lid accessory. This accessory is compatible with any of the DrainDroyd standard filter base products and is constructed from stainless steel. The Frech Press Lid includes a handle for removal from the filter base. Operation is simple: as vacuum is introduced to the filter base, the lid automatically depresses and compresses the material against the filter to produce a compact filter cake that retains less fluid than if it were not compacted. Seal is made of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE).
Turn your DrainDroyd into a condenser base for condensable liquids. This accessory does not include a filter support as cyclones are incorporated into the lid to efficiently separate aerosols and condensed liquids from gas. Used in conjunction with effluent CO2, the condenser base can be chilled to – 50°C, or lower, where the gas is then vented to an external process or grow. Condensable liquids accumulate in the cone area and are released from the condenser with a ball valve. This unit has three 1/2″ compression fitting inputs and a threaded vent output.
Convert your DrainDroyd into a cold ethanol extractor using the jacketed filter base accessory. The material to be extracted is placed in the filter base and pre-chilled ethanol from a freezer is added. The jacketed filter base is used to keep the ethanol at a low temperature. The jacket can be chilled using a chiller or with CO2.
Transform your DrainDroyd into a fluid manager or condenser base. This accessory is a stainless steel lid that has quick disconnects for liquid injection and compressed air. Compressed air can be used to assist flow through the filter apparatus whereas liquid injection can be used to continuously add or remove filtrate.
The ethanol extractor is comprised of a DrainDroyd base plus the following DrainDroyd accessories:
