The Falcon is a rack mounted closed loop system designed to process large volumes of grams per run; the system is designed for maximum productivity and efficiency.
The Falcon is available in 4 different Models:
The Number Following the Model is reference to the dewaxing columns capacity of material.
The Falcon 1500 model is a top-fill passive closed loop extractor, with one 4” x 36” dewaxing column, a 6” x 36” collection base with hemi lid and a 12” x 15” reclamation tank. Solvent is moved throughout the closed loop system using a vacuum, pressure and temperature manipulation, the temperature manipulation is achieved with the use of dry ice or from our selection of heaters and chillers.
Using the pressure and temperature manipulation the closed loop system can pass solvent from the reclamation tank into the top-fill dewax column, the solvent then passes over the material extracting the oil. The oil and solvent then flow into the collection base. The solvent is then recovered to the reclamation tank leaving behind the oil in the splatter platter at the bottom of the collection base. The reclamation tank has an inner level fill indicator which allows for extremely accurate solvent measurement. The system is supplied as a passive system, it can be upgraded to an active system with a CMEP-OL explosion proof recovery pump.
The Falcon 1500 Closed Loop Extractor is perfect for professional extractors who have a medium to large amount of material to process. The dewaxing column allows the waxes, lipids and chlorophyll to be removed during the extraction process, leaving a clear pure oil. The Falcon 1500 is supplied with the 6” x 36” collection base with hemi lid and 12” x 15” reclamation tank. Both the collection base and reclamation tank have two viewing windows which allow the extractor to easily view the progress of each stage. The 6” x 36” collection base and 12” x 15” reclamation tank allows the user to wash the product 3 times.
The collection base and reclamation tank has enough solvent capacity to wash the material three times in one run, this allows for greater yields. BHO Hardware closed loop systems can be supplied with either Viton, Buna or EPDM gaskets, depending on the solvent being used for the extraction.
BHO Hardware also supply a wide range of gaskets with mesh filters, varying from 5 – 150 micron, these are also available with Viton, Buna & EPDM. Which filter you choose will be influenced by your desired end result, for those who want to remove as many waxes and lipids as possible will need to use the 5 micron filter. Extractors who want to preserve some yield, will only want to go as low as 30 micron.
All BHO Hardware closed loop systems are designed, built and pressure tested in the UK before being dispatched to customers. All the closed loop systems are pressure tested @ 100 PSI over a minimum of 72 hours.
