The key closed-loop extraction benefits include safety, efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and higher quality products.
One key closed-loop extraction benefit is safety. Cannabis industry professionals regard closed-loop extraction as the safest way to extract cannabinoids.
Hydrocarbon solvents are flammable, pressurized gases. In closed-loop extraction systems, there are no opportunities for leaks if the equipment is maintained and operated at the appropriate standards. A contained system makes the risk of hazard almost non-existent. In fact, in our several thousand installations, we have never had a client have a safety issue or accident with Precision equipment.
Another closed-loop extraction benefit includes a higher-pressure capacity than open-loop extraction equipment. High pressure allows for maximum extraction of cannabinoids.
In addition to controlling temperature, closed-loop extraction systems are excellent at regulating temperature. Temperature directly controls the solubility of cannabinoids, so it’s essential to be able to control the temperature in the system.
Closed-loop extraction systems also prevent the solvent from being evaporated into the atmosphere and allow the solvent to be used many times without needing to be recharged.
One huge closed-loop extraction benefit is that hydrocarbon solvent is unable to leak out into the atmosphere. Equipment operators can reuse the solvent for extraction after extraction. This benefit leads to savings on solvent purchasing costs for businesses.
Closed-loop extraction technologies provide exceptional control over pressure and temperature, which offer an opportunity to produce the strongest, purest cannabis concentrates available. The vacuum oven removes most or all of the solvent’s residue, so many consumers also regard closed-loop extraction products as the safest to consume.
