BHO Hardware’s exclusive range of closed loop extraction systems are manufactured from 304 stainless steel and are ideal for extracting essential health oils from plants such as lavender and rose.
The Tsunami 500 model is a top-fill passive closed loop extractor, with one 3” x 24” dewaxing column, an 8” x 8” collection base with hemi lid and a 8” x 18” reclamation tank with hemi lid. 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 a heater/chiller.
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 collecting 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 Tsunami 500 3” x 24”closed loop extractor is perfect for beginner or professional extractors who have a medium 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 Tsunami 500 is supplied with the 8” collection base with hemi lid and 8” x 18” reclamation tank with hemi lid. Both the collection base and reclamation tank have two viewing windows which allow the extractor to easily view the progress of each stage. The 8” x 8” collection base and 8” x 18” reclamation tank allows for the use of a larger dewaxing column when required.
The collection base and reclamation tank has enough solvent capacity to wash the material twice 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.
