Functions of a Closed Loop Extractor
A closed loop extractor is a device for extracting solvents from a solid matter. Therefore, a closed loop extractor 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.
Applications of 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 extarct 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.
How do you Use 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.
What is a Closed Loop Extractor?
The closed loop extraction is known as a well received cannabis extraction method, occurring entirely in a closed vessel. The closed loop extractor is a common equipment for transferring a solute substance from one solvent to another by utilizing the difference in solubility or partition coefficient of the substance in two mutually incompatible (or slightly soluble) solvents. It is widely used in chemical, metallurgical, food and other industries, commonly used in petroleum refining industry. During the entire operation of the closed loop extractor, all the parts of the plant are coordinated for solvent extraction. Solvents can be used and recycled in closed loop extractors, which is very economical for the user and very environmentally friendly for people.
