Hydrocarbon Extraction Equipment
Cannabis extraction has become a booming industry in recent years, with the legalization of cannabis for medicinal and recreational use in many states in the US. As the industry continues to grow, the demand for high-quality cannabis extracts also increases. One of the most popular methods of extraction is hydrocarbon extraction, which uses solvents like butane and propane to extract the active compounds from cannabis.
In this blog, we will explore why hydrocarbon extraction equipment is one of the best choices for companies looking to enter the cannabis extraction industry. We will discuss the benefits of hydrocarbon extraction, the equipment required for the process, and the advantages of choosing this method over other extraction methods.
Benefits of Hydrocarbon Extraction
Firstly, hydrocarbon extraction equipment is incredibly efficient at extracting cannabinoids and terpenes from cannabis plants. This means that you will be able to produce high-quality extracts with a high potency and purity, which is essential for creating premium cannabis products that stand out in a competitive market.
Secondly, hydrocarbon extraction equipment is versatile and can be used to extract a wide range of cannabinoids and terpenes. The efficiency of hydrocarbon extraction ensures that regardless of the starting material, you will be able to extract the desirable compounds.
Thirdly, hydrocarbon extraction equipment allows you to produce a wide range of finished products in different consistencies. Early stage marketplaces will have a large desire for products they’re familiar with like shatter and wax, but more mature marketplaces will have a need for new products like diamonds and live resin.
As the markets mature, the product mix will change. Extractors using hydrocarbon extraction equipment will be able to fill their customer demand for different products using a single machine. This versatility in end products allows you to cater to different market segments and produce a range of products that appeal to a wide range of consumers.
About Hydrocarbon Extraction Equipment
Hydrocarbon extraction equipment is cost-effective in the long run. While the initial investment can be higher than other extraction methods such as ethanol or solventless extraction, the efficiency and versatility of hydrocarbon extraction equipment will save you money in the long term. You will be able to extract more material than solventless extraction equipment, and make more finished products than if you were to use ethanol extraction equipment or Co2 extraction equipment.
To perform hydrocarbon extraction, you’ll want to chose equipment that is proven in the marketplace and is safe to operate as the extraction process can be dangerous if not performed correctly, or if the equipment is not professionally designed and engineered. It is VERY IMPORTANT to make sure you’re selecting equipment from a manufacturer who builds equipment in the proper way.
Some things to look out for when shopping for hydrocarbon extraction equipment:
- ASME certified pressure vessels
- Engineering peer review (EPR) for the equipment
- UL listed components
- C1D1 Compliant
- ICC Compliant
- IFC Compliant
