A closed loop extractor is a device for extracting solvents from a solid matter. It can do a good job on the extraction and concentration of all kinds of solid substances. One of the most popular industrial use is the extraction of ethanol-washed cannabis.
How to Use a Closed Loop Extractor?
Closed loop extractors are widely used in a great number of fields, such as chemical, biochemical, industrial and other fields, and can be applied in the process of food, perfume and other beauty products. In recent years, closed loop extractors have become more and more well-received in the industrial field especially for the extraction of ethanol-washed cannabis.
With the rapid development of industry, the extraction of ethanol-washed cannabis has become increasingly popular around the world. Therefore, how can a closed loop extractor be used to extract marijuana by the ethanol washing. It will be introduced in the following.
Extraction of cannabis is performed by ethanol washing to extract cannabinoids from cannabis leaves through a closed loop extractor. During this process, the cannabis leaf was placed in a solvent and washed thoroughly with ethanol. The soluble cannabinoids are removed during the washing process and then collected in a collection tank. Cannabinoids are produced in two ways, one for drugs and the other for entertainment.
Working Process of a Closed Loop Extractor
The materials are put into the material column to get soaked by ethanol or other solvents. In this process, substances get extracted. Then the mixture will be transferred into next column and get separated. The solvents will be transferred into next column and extracted substances will be saved in the bottom container for users to get. In closed loop extractor, the solvents can be recycled and used for several times.
Are Closed Loop Extractors Safe?
It is well recognized that closed loop extractors is one of the safest equipment to extract cannabinoids. No leak will occur as long as the equipment is maintained and operated properly. But it should be noticed that any mechanical equipment have some safety requirements for use. For a closed loop extractor, you’d better operate it outdoors, which is the safest and most economical environment. It should be guaranteed that the environment temperature isn’t too high and there is no fire or any exposition around.
