The Machine consists of extraction vessel (Extractor), distillation vessel (Distillator) and solvent tank (Reservoir) also including heat battery and other aggregates needed for extraction.
Extractor has basic effective volume of 25 liters of raw material. Once we fill the extractor with raw material, vacuum is reached in the system (extractor and distillator) then raw material is covered in solvent and extraction begins. Solvent rich in extract is let to distillator. Process of separation of extract from solvent begins. Solvent fumes are let to the solvent tank where they immediately turn liquid. Big enough reserve of solvent and advanced construction of 3rd generation of the machine allows to have extraction, distillation and turning solvent to liquid all at once simultaneously.
Heat battery precisely controls temperatures, pressures and all processes in extraction machine which reaches high effectivity of extraction, substantially shortened extraction process and low energy consumption.
Suitable recipes for individual herbs and theirs variations that vary according to content of active substances allow us to optimally use characteristics of the solvent and the machine. User can use pre-determined recipes or create and save his own. Processes can be observed in graphical form as the system saves all processes and settings. Full control via PC, smartphone or tablet app is easy and effective.
Tetra Extraction Technology (TET) uses solvent, which is approved for use in food and pharmacological industry. American Food and Drugs Agency (FDA) considers the solvent to be GRAS – generally recognized as safe substance.
Tetrafluoroethane HFC-134A (R134A) is hydrocarbon solvent, environmentally friendly and safe to ozone layer. It is non-explosive and non-flammable.
The solvent is used as propellant gas in oral medicine and it is allowed and safe to spray it directly to your lungs, there are no known toxic effects. Tetrafluoroethane is not included in Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete Ozone Layer.
Tetrafluoroethane is safe to use in extraction technology. It works using low pressure and temperature. Extraction is possible using room temperature, lower temperatures but also higher temperatures. These factors are controlled and set according to the needs of raw material that is being extracted to prevent degradation or destruction of extracted substances that are sensitive and delicate to temperature or pressure.
