All-In-One Cryo-Ethanol Extraction Solution

Root Sciences’ all-in-one cryo-extraction, solvent recovery, and decarboxylation systems are designed for the recovery of cannabis crude extract from cannabis biomass. The used solvent can be recovered and reused for further extraction processes. This model handles approximately 400 lb (180 kg) per 8-hour shift (depending on the bulk density of the raw material).

The CryoEXS 400 is an all-in-one system, which provides several unrivaled benefits:

  • Equipment Included: No need for separate equipment for winterization, solvent recovery, decarboxylation, or devolatilization
  • Rapid Process: Processing time is reduced from several days to several hours
  • Reduced Labor: Fewer operators are required, saving on labor costs
  • Scalable, Skidded System: Scalable, skidded system with 400, 800, and 4,000 lb throughput (per 8-hour shift) options
  • Automation: State-of-the-art sensors, controllers, and simple touch-screen interface allow a single operator to monitor the system

How is Cryo-Ethanol Extraction Unique?

Cryo-Ethanol extraction is the most efficient and cost-effective solution for large-scale cannabis processors. The cannabinoid-rich crude extract that is produced is ideal for further refinement into high purity distillates and isolates.

Traditionally, the most common extraction methods used in the creation of cannabis crude oil have been CO2 extraction, light hydrocarbon extraction, and warm ethanol extraction. CryoEXS, entered the hemp and cannabis extraction market in 2019, cutting the extraction process down from days to hours by utilizing cryo-ethanol extraction (commonly referred to as cold-ethanol extraction) technology.

CryoEXS efficiently leaves all lipids behind during the extraction process, which allows processors to cut the process bottleneck down from a few days to just a few hours. Manufactured by DEVEX of Germany, our cryo-ethanol extraction systems provide the benefit of bypassing several steps that must be followed during other extraction methods. This type of cold-ethanol extraction technology offers a much more advantageous and time-efficient solution to the extraction process.
