New technology has developed into continuous flow disc fluid extraction. As an alternative to butane extraction (BHO) and Supercritical CO2, the continuous flow oil extraction kit (oil extraction machine), can efficiently produce vape pen oil extraction by co2 liquid or other fluid carriers (including water). Botanical oil extractions include beer Citra Hop oil extraction, Cacao nut oil, Tamanu Oil, antioxidants, including extracts from jellyfish, algae, and marine life like Salmon (polyphenols, astaxanthin). Other nutraceuticals are also good for oil extraction. There are also some efforts regarding extraction of Māmalu o Wahine (the mushroom Dictyophora species commonly referred to as stinkhorn).
How it works: The disc reactor spins a slurry of liquid and particulates, and uses cavitation and shear forces to break apart botanicals to extract oil and other compounds. More complicated reactions can also be introduced using sonochemistry, which can provide exothermic reactions (UV, heat, mixing, and catalytic reactions), catalysts, or co-solvents. Because of the shear forces, the extraction time can be reduced from hours to minutes. Most systems can provide a closed-loop or continuous feed, which allows larger processing operations.
The same spinning disc reactor, can be used to produce quantum dots. With a SDR, perovskites can be commercially manufactured, with a low cost, continuous feed, production format (and made into solar cells).
