HIVE 200 PROCESS
Purpose – Producing commercial quantities of Crude cannabis oil as well as Cannabis Distillate through industrial scale super-chilled ethanol extraction equipment.
Process – Super-chill , Soak , Filter , Solvent removal, Component distillation.
Super-Chilling – The ethanol that is stored in the External reservoir is drawn through a custom Chiller that drops the temperature to -40C before it enters the Soaking vessel.
Soaking – The 400l/100kg Soaking vessel is packed with a custom 200u Nylon bag before the biomass is added and the dome cap sealed. The super-chilled ethanol is then drawn with vacuum over the biomass and soaked for approximately 10mins before the vacuum is engaged and the solution is removed from the biomass with a high vacuum.
Filter – The solution from the Soaking vessel is drawn through a 304 l Stainless steel multi-screen-filter (200u , 160u, 120u, 90u, 40u) before being drawn into the Internal Fully synthetic 5-stage filter ( 100u, 50u, 10u, 1u, 1u) to remove any remaining impurities from the solution.
Solvent Removal- The dewaxed and filtered solution is drawn into the heat-jacketed Evaporation vessel (35-40C) where the ethanol evaporates at phenomenal rate through the Comb condenser and into the awaiting reservoir tanks. The Reservoir vessels alongside the Evaporation vessel have level sensors to indicate when the Crude oil/Ethanol has reached capacity (Crude 100l, Ethanol 800l) and the Ethanol needs to be dispensed back to the reservoir or the crude is ready for refinement.
