Apeks introduces fully automated, closed loop CO2 extraction system for Botanical and Essential oil production

JOHNSTOWN, Ohio, Aug. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Apeks is excited to announce the release of the 1500-1L Benchtop CO2 extraction system.  The new technology uses approximately 2-lb of carbon dioxide, runs off 110-volts, is closed loop (recovers the CO2 after use) and is fully automated.  This 1500-1L is the first of its kind in the market place, it requires no input or oversight from an operator beyond filling the extractor with plant material, pressing start and removing the extracted oil.  The 1500-1L is built off the successful 1500-1LV platform and is designed to operate in a light commercial environment with minimal power requirements.  The system has its own electric high pressure CO2 pump and temperature control unit, both of which are designed to run off standard 110-volt circuits.  The 1500-1L Benchtop utilizes the Valveless Expansion Technology (VET) also developed by Apeks.  VET utilizes a proprietary decompression mechanism for separation of the extracted oils from the liquid or supercritical CO2 stream that has no constrictions and no let down valves to cause clogging in the system during operation


"Release of the 1500-1L Benchtop is poised to revolutionize the Botanical Extraction Equipment market by making full automation an affordable reality." Said Nate Ames, Director of Engineering for Apeks.  "We continually hear from our clients that they want to push start and trust that the system will make all necessary adjustment and run without their intervention.  The technology developed and implemented on the new 1500-1L makes that possible.  We plan to make similar changes to all of our 1500psi and 5000-psi systems in upcoming months." 


Apeks is dedicated to the safety of our clients and as such we are focused on promoting the use of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) for botanical extractions.  CO2 is Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) by the FDA, is chemically inert, non-flammable, leaves no toxic residue, is a natural disinfectant, and is carbon neutral which makes it an ideal solvent for essential oil extractions.  Health and beauty industries, herbal formula providers, perfume manufacturers, neutraceutical and pharmaceutical providers have all realized the benefits of CO2 extracted essential oils for many years.  All Apeks Supercritical systems are designed with duplicate and/or triplicate safety systems and all vessels are designed and built in accordance with ASME standards.  With over 12 years of design, engineering and fabrication experience in botanical oil extraction equipment industry, we know how to build systems are safe, reliable and efficient.
