Semi-continuous extraction reduces the downtime and bacteria pollution in the system. CO2 flows continuously in the circuit, preventing the accumulation of dirt and bacteria.

In the semi-continuous extraction process, the extraction begins with Extractor 1 and moves to Extractor 2. Then from Extractor 2, it returns to Extractor 1 — and so on. It never stops until the production manager decides to clean the system.

Top Advantages of The Semi-Continuous Process:

  1. The CO2 is always circulating: bacteria and dirt cannot contaminate the circuit.
  2. The fast-closing system allows you to unload/reload canisters in just five minutes.
  3. The production per day is 30% greater than a single extractor system.
