Best Value Vacs has bundled our recommended vacuum chamber, vacuum pump, and column extraction system to offer customers the most cost-effective solution possible.
The Closed Column Extractor Kit is designed to pair well with the other products included in the extraction kit. The items in the kit cover every process from start to finish on your essential oil extraction (excluding butane) and is easy for beginner operators to use.
The first step of the oil extraction process is to use the closed column extractor to extract the essential oils from the plant material into a pyrex dish. The user then transfers the oil with residual solvent into the two-gallon vacuum chamber; the digital heating pad is attached to the bottom of the chamber after setting the temperature. The 3CFM vacuum pump exerts a high vacuum to purge and degass residual solvent or gases trapped inside the oil. (Note: This process may take up to 5 days.) Once the purging process is complete, the oil extraction can be used immediately or transformed into a variety of applications.

Key Features and Description:
Closed Column Pressure Extractor (Comes with 1 yr. Limited warranty, excludes gaskets and screens)
This system allows the user to build up solvent pressure by closing the valve, pulling a vacuum and filling the extractor, Extractor will fill about 85% with solvent before the internal pressure will equal the pressure of the can propellant.
The solvent can will fit into either port with a tip adapter supplied with some butane cans, tip adapter required, not included
Solvent Soak is expected to be between 30-90 min, but this all depends on material, starting with frozen cans of solvent is recommended
This system allows the user to soak the material before opening the bottom valve to release the solvent and oil.
Best Value’s unique, patent-pending gasket design (Utility Patent #14/533,548) and formidable chamber are designed to last 10,000 uses with proper care and maintenance. The gasket is made reversible for easy peel-off and peel-on functionality, effectively doubling the life of our system. The chamber is equipped with user-friendly vacuum connections that fit most vacuum pumps on the market. Every chamber is tested before shipping to lose no more than 2.5Hg/24hrs.
Highly durable and reversible silicone gasket
Glycerin-filled vacuum gauge
50 Micron Air filter for reducing airborne contaminants when releasing the vacuum
30 day unregistered warranty/90 day registered warranty
This reliable, economical, and efficient Single Stage Vacuum Pump is a Best Value Vacs standard. When operating a closed loop extractor, the first step is to pull a full vacuum on the system using the 3CFM vacuum pump, with plant material in the material column using the vacuum pump.
