Ethanol Extraction Equipment

Ethanol extraction machines, used to extract desired components from cannabis, come in two main forms: heated ethanol extraction machines boil ethanol in a flask or pot, then condense the alcohol on a cooling coil, which drips through the packed cannabis, cannabinoids and terpenes; room temperature extraction machines use short-path systems to repeatedly isolate and extract desired compounds from the cannabis material. The main trade-off between these systems are efficiency (heated) and sensitivity (room-temperature).
