Supercritical CO2 Fluid Extraction System for Botanicals Oil Extract
For Hemp CBD Investors and Funding Groups: Please read our strategy and methodology on how to capitalize extraction systems, and grow vertically into this botanical oils market. PDF: 20190129-infinity-supercritical-hemp-cbd-investor-strategy
Our machines are Made in the USA, and use quality Swagelok fittings.
Your time is money. Use your time to make extracts faster. This system will result in less time spent with maintenance, or waiting for a long extraction process, and will provide you with more time that is spent extracting profit from Cannabis and CBD Oil from Hemp.
Fast Cycle Time:
This system provides a faster extraction and cuts your cycle time to extract more oil in less time. Less cycle time equals more runs per day, and more extract. 30 min 12% Yield and 120 min 18% Yield (Cascade hops).
Low Carry Over:
Reducing carry-over saves time and parts costs in system maintenance, and puts more profit into your pocket. It also means less time spent on upkeep with the machine, and more time spent on extracting oil.
Systems are designed to target oil production at pressures lower than 2,000 psi, which specifically can retain valuable terpenes, and emphasize oil harvesting, instead of waxes and other byproducts, which need to be removed in post processing.
Run 2 months without pump cleaning: Quiet, reliable, and lowest maintenance CO2 pump in the industry. We have one customer who has run his machine almost everyday for 2 months without cleaning his CO2 pump. We also are the first company to provide a bolt-on pump cleaner to clean your pump head in-place. We specialize in collecting the oil before it gets to the CO2 pump using our proprietary electrostatic collector. Others make you buy additional pumps, or require cleaning every few days.

Modular Fluid Extractor MFE 10L Run SubCritical or Supercritical CO2
System holds about 10 Liters volume of botanicals (inside extraction vessel is about 48 x 4 inches or 600 cubic inches or almost 10 L). The weight of the botanical will depend on whether it is pelletized (such as hops) or loose (trim or flower). Expect less weight for leafy material. We do not recommend finely ground material that cannot be contained within the botanicals basket.
How it Works: High pressure liquid CO2 is pumped into a extraction vessel, which brings the CO2 supercritical as it goes into the separation/collection vessels. As the botanicals come in contact with the CO2, the oil is released into the CO2, since the CO2 acts as a solvent. The gas and oil (co-mingled) are released into the separation/collection vessel where the pressure drops and the botanical oil drops out as a liquid. The CO2 gas is then condensed back to a liquid via a small heat exchanger, and then recirculated through a CO2 pump to start the cycle over.
Electrostatic Precipitator: Infinity Supercritical is the first in the industry to utilize static electricity to assist in collection of oil. Commonly known as ESP, electrostatic precipitation is a method used in many industries to remove particulates in a gas flow. In this case, we’re applying some same technology (but with our own invention) to collect Cannabis oil. A small charge accumulates in the entrained oil, which makes it adhere to the first collection vessel.
Semi-Automated: Turn the CO2 pump on, and leave it on. You can adust the pump speed, which sets the pressure. The system runs in a steady-state once started. This is a 2,000 psi or less working pressure system. Typical runs will be at 1,300 to 1,800 psi. The system working pressure is rated for 2,000 psi. A safety relief vavle is provided to release any pressure which goes above 2,000 psi. Targets oil at or below 2,000 psi to minimize post processing. High Pressure Systems (above 2000 psi) = lots of post processing.
Fittings: We use quality Swagelok fittings.
Pump Cleaner: Use our optional pump cleaner to clean the pump without removing the pump head.
FlowBar: The CO2 FlowBar enhances the CO2 delivery and distribution within the botanicals extraction vessel. While almost every CO2 extraction system enters in one end and exits the other, our new concept delivers CO2 in a uniform manner throughout the entire extraction vessel. The result is a much faster, and more thorough extraction.
