45G-270G Closed Column Extractor Starter Kit

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.
