Hightech’s Triple Extractor Configuration Provides Maximum Flexibility & Maximizes Throughput

The triple extractor configuration is the most flexible configuration in an SCF system. The machine’s flexibility is enhanced by our automation-by-recipe process.

It can be configured automatically as:

  1. Semi-Continuous: System runs one vessel after another automatically but pauses between extraction until operator presses “continue”.
  2. Serial Triple: System runs one vessel at a time automatically then stops when all three vessels are completed.
  3. Multistep Serial Triple:
    • System automatically runs Step 1 of a multi-step recipe, one vessel at a time.
    • System then pauses when all three vessels are completed, until operator presses “continue.”
    • System will then automatically run Step 2, one vessel at a time.
    • System then pauses when all three vessels are completed until operator presses “continue,” etc. (Up to five steps are possible.)
  4. Multistep Serial Triple w/S0 Option:
    • System automatically runs Step 1 of a multi-step recipe, one vessel at a time, collecting extract in Separator S0.
    • When all three vessels are completed, the system activates the S0 bypass valve and automatically continues to Step 2 of the recipe collecting extract in S1/S2 & S3 until all three vessels are completed.
  5. Continuous Overlapping Extraction:
    • The system runs a one-step recipe starting with E1.
    • When the cycle is half complete, it overlaps the cycle with E2, then E2 overlaps with E3, then E3 and E1, etc. continuously until stopped.

The Double S0/S1 Option offers the possibility to collect some fraction in S0 and a different fraction in S1, S2 and S3 in sequence with S0/S1. S0 is typically gravimetric. S1, S2, 3S are cyclonic.

The system can be configured automatically as:

  1. S0 to S1 to S3, to collect in S0 terpenes.
  2. S1 to S2 to S3, to collect in S1 cannabinoids.
  3. S0 to S1 to S2 to S3 to have heavier fraction fractionate in S0 and S1.

These features are used with multi-step program recipes.
